Harris accused Mayweather of beating her on multiple occasions, and a 2010 incident led to a 90-day jail sentence for Mayweather.Harris also accused Mayweather of assaulting her in 2005, but she later dropped the charges and admitted she was lying.Mayweather and Harris were scheduled to go to court later this year stemming from a $20 million lawsuit Harris filed against Floyd.The lawsuit stemmed from Mayweather denying in an interview with Katie Couric that he beat Harris in 2010, claiming he only tried to restrain Harris and that she was on drugs.The story Mayweather told in the interview was much different from what the police report from the incident stated. Harris posted evidence long after the 2010 incident that indicated she still had some sort of relationship with Mayweather.After Harris died, Mayweather posted a multi-photo tribute to her on Instagram.Tags: AlprazolamFentanylFloyd MayweatherJosie Harrislast_img read more

MDCPS Superintendent Reappointed to National Assessment Governing Board

first_imgMIAMI-DADE – Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho has been reappointed by U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to serve as a member of the 7-member National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) from October 1, 2019, to September 30, 2023. Carvalho has served on the NAGB since 2015 and is the only Board member to have been reappointed.“The theory of action behind testing kids cannot be simply to report data; the end goal must be to improve teaching and learning,” said Carvalho. “I am deeply proud to continue being a part of this great work, and I thank Secretary DeVos for the reappointment.”NAGB was created by Congress in 1988 as an independent, nonpartisan board to set policy for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as The Nation’s Report Card. NAEP is the largest nationally representative, continuing evaluation of the condition of education in the United States. It has served as a national yardstick of student achievement since 1969. NAEP informs the public about what American students know and can do in various subject areas and compares achievement among states, large urban districts, and various student groups.NAEP offers to the public and to education policymakers at the national, state and local levels, objective data on student performance in nearly a dozen subjects. The information NAEP provides helps education stakeholders evaluate the progress of American education. The 26-member nonpartisan, independent Governing Board determines the subjects and content of NAEP tests, sets the achievement levels for reporting and publicly releases the results.Carvalho joined the Governing Board in 2015. As superintendent of MDCPS he leads the nation’s fourth-largest school system. During his tenure, MDCPS has become one of the nation’s highest-performing urban school systems, receiving systemwide accreditation from AdvancEd in 2014.last_img read more
