Pennsylvania residents want return of Paterno statue: poll

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 02/11/2015 - 19:07

Workers wrap the statue of late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno as they prepare to remove the statue outside Beaver Stadium in State College PennsylvaniaBy Daniel Kelley PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Pennsylvania residents overwhelmingly support restoration of the Joe Paterno statue on Penn State's campus, according to a new survey by Quinnipiac University. In a poll of 1,023 residents, 59 percent support putting the statue of the famed football coach in a “place of prominence," while 25 percent oppose such a move. Paterno was a legendary figure on Penn State's campus, who saw his reputation left in tatters in the wake of child sex abuse charges against Jerry Sandusky, his former defensive football coach. Officials at Penn State, including Paterno, drew withering criticism for not taking action after being alerted that Sandusky was sexually abusing children, sometimes in locker room showers.

LA school district lawyers free to help minors facing deportation: LA Times

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 02/11/2015 - 18:20
(Reuters) - Attorneys for the Los Angeles Unified School District will be allowed to assist students who are facing possible deportation under a new program for unaccompanied minors approved on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Times reported. The country's second largest school system and the LA Board of Education, which approved the plan, could not be immediately reached for comment. A report filed to the board by the district in support of the project said that some 3,000 unaccompanied minors detained by immigration officials last year were released to sponsors in Los Angeles County and many enrolled in district schools. "There are not enough attorneys representing unaccompanied youth in deportation proceedings, and thousands of children who might otherwise qualify for legal residency are being taken out of their schools in the United States and sent back to the violence and persecution they fled," the report said.
