One educator’s reform is another educator’s wrong move.

Dorsey Hopson doesn’t use the word “reform” as often as he uses the term “game changer.”

WASHINGTON (AP) – High unemployment isn't going away – not as long as the economy grows as slowly as it did in the April-June quarter.

Weak consumer spending held growth to an annual rate of just 1.5 percent, even less than the 2 percent rate in the first quarter. And few expect the economy to accelerate in the second half of the year as Europe's financial woes and a U.S. budget crisis restrain businesses and consumers.

78. Europe Shaken by Fear Spain Will Need Full Bailout -

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) – Europe is on the brink again. The region's debt crisis flared on Monday as fears intensified that Spain would be next in line for a government bailout.

A recession is deepening in Spain, the fourth-largest economy that uses the euro currency, and a growing number of its regional governments are seeking financial lifelines to make ends meet.

80. US Economy Appears Weaker as Retail Sales Slump -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The outlook for the U.S. economy appeared dimmer Monday after a report that Americans spent less at retail businesses for a third straight month in June.

81. Fed Was Split Over Policy Action at June Meeting -

83. Market Yields Best June in 13 Years -

87. Weak US Job Market Weighing on Broader Economy -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The sluggish job market is weighing on the U.S. economy three years after the Great Recession ended. And the signs suggest hiring may not strengthen any time soon.

A measure of the number of people applying for unemployment benefits over the past month has reached a six-month high, the government said Thursday. The increase suggests that layoffs are rising and June will be another tepid month for hiring.

88. School Board Votes Not To Renew Cash's Contract -

The countywide school board voted Tuesday, June 19, not to renew the contract of Memphis City Schools superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash past August 2013 when it is scheduled to run out.

95. Questions Arise Over Cash Buyout Talks -

Talks to buy out the contract of Memphis City Schools superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash began last December after a heated conversation between Cash and countywide school board chairman Billy Orgel.

96. Board Considers Future Leadership -

Countywide school board members will at least talk Monday, June 11, about the employment contract of Memphis City Schools superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash.
