By Hazel Shearing Published 1 hour ago comments Comments Share close Share page Copy link About sharing Related Topics Coronavirus pandemic Overall standards in reading, writing and maths have slipped among Year 6 pupils in England since the pandemic, according to Sats results. They show 59% of pupils met the expected level in these combined areas this year, down from 65% in 2019. The national curriculum tests were cancelled in 2020 and 2021.

The pupils who took Sats this … [Read more...] about Sats results: Standards slip in Year 6 tests

Fleur de Lis, the seller of square pizzas and among Baton Rouge's oldest restaurants, announced it was closing over the Fourth of July weekend — and it's not clear when or if it's going to re-open. That news has caused shock and a wave of nostalgia for many loyal customers and fans of their Round the World Pizza (anchovy, Italian sausage, mushroom, pepperoni, salami, onions — no free substitutions). And, for some, it shows how Baton Rouge and its restaurant scene are evolving. Fleur de Lis' website says it "will be closed July 4th - July 12th for vacation" — something it has been known to do in the past. But its Facebook page says "We will be closed until further notice, due to the shortage of staff. Thank you so much to my few loyal staff and all my loyal customers." Fleur de Lis' owners could not be reached for comment. The restaurant's voice mail says: "We’re going to be closed indefinitely at this point due to staffing issues. We are going to really miss all of our … [Read more...] about Is Fleur de Lis closing for good? And what does that say about Baton Rouge’s restaurant scene?

Posting in Reddit 's "True Off My Chest" forum under the username u/ThrowRA0ooO00ooO, the woman said she's not cheating and "refuses" to be surveilled in her own home.
