Slovenia started epidemiologically mapping and looking at each Croatian county individually

first_imgSource: RS Government During the holidays, self-protective behavior, maintaining a safe distance, hand hygiene and, of course, avoiding places with a large concentration of other people – full restaurants, nightclubs – are necessary, say Slovenian governments. The Government of the Republic of Slovenia has started epidemiologically mapping and individually looking at each Croatian county, which is great news for our tourism, because if it were the opposite due to the epidemiological situation, the whole of Croatia would already be on the red list. center_img Thus, according to the epidemiological situation, Istria and Kvarner remained on the green list, while other Adriatic counties were on the yellow list. Other counties that are in the yellow zone or list are only advised to be more careful. So do Slovenian citizens who come from green and yellow regions not subject 14-day quarantine, but more caution is definitely needed. last_img read more

THE Los Angeles Unified School District may have no choice but to accommodate the popularity of charter schools under state law, but that doesn’t mean officials have to live up to the spirit of the law. Independent and popular, charter schools have long been requesting, to no avail, that the district allow them to use some of its vacant space. This week, school officials grudgingly gave in, as they must, but offered up school sites that might be rescinded in the fall. Essentially, their offer is a nonoffer, and now some charters don’t know where they will hold classes next school year. The LAUSD doesn’t like the charter school revolution, since it empowers parents, teachers and campus administrators instead of the district’s bloated and largely ineffective bureaucracy. Proposition 39 says the school district has to provide for and support all students equally. These games that the district is using to punish charters show that school officials are committed to their own survival, and not to the education of children.last_img read more
