When it seemed that the president of Barça had controlled the roadmap of his last year in office by degrading Vice Presidents Rousaud and Tombas and keeping the Pont and Elías executives in chapel, accusing them of being unfair and arguing that they had lost their confidence, the club’s top president He received a direct to the jaw that left him shivering, but still believes he will resist. Although these resignations were joined by the resignations of Jordi Calsamiglia and the secretary of the board Maria Teixidor in the resignation to continue being part of the council, Bartomeu believes that with a couple of additions it is enough for him to overcome the biggest wave that has been presented to him in his last term.After the statement released by the club midday on Friday denying that no one from the club “got their hands on the box” As Rousaud denounced, it is implicit that the president will not react until at least Tuesday with the new appointments. The first to sound to join the council is Teresa Basilio, who could not join the meeting because when they proposed it in her day she was not five years old as a member.Bartomeu’s idea is to resist against all odds. The resignation by surprise and night of six executives the morning of Holy Thursday Delivering a letter to a notary in Barcelona asking for elections and denouncing the malpractice of the club in the management of Barçagate and distrusting that this board can direct the club after the crisis that the impact of the coronavirus will suppose In the entity’s finances, it does not shake a president who has decided to fly alone for a long time. Bartomeu’s plan for the next few hours is to remain silent, think about the remodeling of the meeting and act next week.The president has stayed with 13 directors, which statutorily allows him to continue governing the club as long as he incorporates one more. And that’s what it’s going to do. Article 33 establishes that the board must be made up of a minimum of 14 and a maximum of 21 members. Today, the board is made up of two vice-presidents: Jordi Cardoner and Jordi Moix, as well as the members Joan Bladé, Javier Bordas, Dídac Lee, Josep Ramon Vidal-Abarca, Pau Vilanova, Oriol Tomàs, Xavier Vilajoana, Marta Plana and Jordi Argemí.Any more resignation would leave the current president in a truly compromised position, but from Barça they are sure that the box will be increased. But as the situation is chaotic, Barcelona on Friday morning was abuzz with rumors. No further resignations were ruled out.What seems clear is that those who enter, will have many numbers of being fundamental in the politics of the last work of management of the current president. no one will enter this meeting to be a vase. In the current situation, any incorporation will be with an electoral perspective. The same that has led the noble plant to the most devastating fire with the merit of having made it confined and from home.

School choice has made it downright difficult to ensure every child gets the same educational opportunities.Milwaukee, Wisconsin has had years of experience with the kind of school choice reformers advocate. A state program has offered its students tuition vouchers for over 25 years; currently, 26,000 students use these public funds to pay their private school tuitions. The Milwaukee School District operates both traditional public schools and district-managed charter schools. Independently managed charter schools are also an option for Milwaukee students.State government funding formulas try to make the allocation of public education resources fair. Local funds from taxes, however, reflect the economic differences between communities. The fundraising abilities of schools and school districts also create disparities. The New York Times’ Kwame Anthony Appiah summed up the dilemma posed by uncontrolled local school philanthropy in a recent “Ethicist” column:Yet even affluent public schools have fewer resources than many private schools. Raising money from parents and other outside donors allows them to do a better job than they otherwise would, resulting in better educations for some children in the public system than for others.The Milwaukee School District plans for philanthropy to help make up for this inequity in funding. It is reinvigorating the school district’s Foundation (formed in 1998) to solicit city businesses, residents, and former students for support. A newly appointed member of the MPS Foundation Board, Tina Chang, spelled out their vision of the challenge to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.“This is all about making sure MPS children get the same opportunities as the most successful choice and charter schools,” [Chang said,] which all have robust fund-raising arms. It’s also about keeping up with suburban districts, many of which raise private funds to fill the gaps when state and local funding fails to keep pace with costs for staff, facilities and programming.With a new board and staff in place, the Foundation hopes it can raise $850,000 this year. If they are successful, those funds will provide needed programs and services for the district’s students. The district budget is nearly $1 billion dollars with “projected revenue down $1.3 million compared to the 2015-16 amended adopted budget.” The new fundraising plans are as necessary as they are modest, given the funding gap.The impact on equity of our national reliance on local taxes to fund public schools is too vast to overcome by local philanthropy by most school districts. The growing economic segregation of our country is reflected in public schools, especially those lacking the relationships and influence to meet their needs through philanthropy. This is an area among many where civil society needs to rise to the challenge.—Martin LevineShare6TweetShare4Email10 Shares
