first_imgNEWCASTLE, England (AP): Georginio Wijnaldum scored four goals as Newcastle recorded their first win of the Premier League season in style yesterday crushing Norwich 6-2 at St James’ Park. The Dutch international scored twice, and Ayoze Perez added a third, as Newcastle led 3-2 at the end of an action-packed first half, with Dieumerci Mbokani and Nathan Redmond replying for the visitors. Wijnaldum followed up by scoring two more after the break, along with a 64th minute strike by Aleksandar Mitrovic. Steve McClaren’s Newcastle remains in the relegation zone, but moves from last place to 18th in the standings – two points behind promoted Bournemouth. The win also sets them up perfectly for next weekend’s derby trip to fellow strugglers Sunderland. Newcastle took a 14th-minute lead when, after a one-two between Moussa Sissoko and Mitrovic had not come off, the France international calmly shifted the ball before sliding it into the path of Wijnaldum, who finished efficiently. The lead lasted just six minutes when Sissoko’s absence allowed Robbie Brady, who had earlier rattled a post from distance, to find Martin Olsson down the left and his inviting cross was touched home by Mbokani. However, Wijnaldum struck once again to head Sissoko’s 26th-minute cross past goalkeeper John Ruddy, and when Perez beat Ruddy from close range after Olsson had blocked his initial effort, the Magpies looked to be well on their way with 12 minutes of the first half remaining. But Norwich grabbed a second lifeline within seconds. Olsson was allowed time and space on the left to cross, and Redmond was similarly unchallenged as he volleyed home from beyond the far post. As the former England coach talked to his players at the break, McClaren’s emotions will have been decidedly mixed after 45 minutes which had seen them play some wonderful, incisive football and also twice gift Norwich a way back into the game. Norwich laid siege to the Newcastle goal during the opening stages of the second half, but the task became more difficult with 64 minutes gone. Sissoko floated the ball into Mitrovic’s run and the Serbia international controlled with his chest before smashing a left-foot volley past the helpless Ruddy, whose afternoon took a further turn for the worse two minutes later. Sissoko and Wijnaldum combined to allow Daryl Janmaat to cross and Wijnaldum timed his run to perfection to complete his hat-trick with a close-range header. Although Redmond later struck the upright at the other end, the Dutch international’s 85th-minute shot was deflected into the top corner to round off a vital win for his team.last_img read more

first_img“We felt it was important for us as a movement to weigh in by holding ourselves to an objective standard that was created by more than 300 charter school leaders,” Young said. “It’s in our interest to make sure all charter schools are doing a great job by a variety of different measures.” To be certified by the association, charters must undergo an independent review by third-party agencies, such as the Western Association of Schools and Colleges or the state Board of Education Renewal Review. The charter association will not charge a fee for certification, but schools would have to pay $5,000 to $10,000 for third-party reviews. Members of the Charter Schools Association will have to get certified within four years of joining, and will have to undergo periodic reviews, she said. Los Angeles Unified has 103 charters – more than any other district in the nation – but has resisted efforts to expand the movement. Officials said they will review the association’s guidelines to see if they jibe with the district’s approval and renewal process. Striving to set uniform standards for the burgeoning charter movement, the California Charter Schools Association announced Tuesday a certification program for the independent campuses. Granada Hills Charter High School is among six charters in Los Angeles Unified and 39 in California that already meet the association’s standards for academic achievement, ethical leadership, focus on increasing quality, responsible governance and fiscal accountability. A total of 84 other Los Angeles Unified charters are candidates for the association’s seal of approval. Caprice Young, the former LAUSD board president who now heads the association, said the program provides an objective way to help identify high-quality schools. “Anything that motivates charters to provide quality education to kids is a good thing and is helpful,” said Greg McNair, who oversees charters for the district. “If anything concerns me, it’s that CCSA is a membership organization, that’s how they exist, so whether or not they look at the same things we look at, whether they are as rigorous as we are, stands to question.” The announcement shifts the state’s largest charter school membership association from advocating for the creation of charter schools to supporting charter schools committed to high quality and accountability, Canter said. Penny Wohlstetter, a professor and director of the Center on Educational Governance at the University of Southern California, last week released a separate set of quality measures for charters.
