Arizona’s plans for online K-12 schooling this fall in Maricopa County will prove especially complicated for divorced parents who share custody, says Stewart Law Group.

While some of the county’s school districts and charter schools have reopened for in-person classes, others are starting with remote learning as they monitor three public health benchmarks on a regular basis to see when it may be safe to return, notes Stewart Law Group, a Phoenix-based firm.

Overseeing students learning at home will be stressful enough, and the uncertainty over when in-person schooling will return will cause even more headaches among divorced families, says Scott David Stewart, a divorce attorney and founder of Stewart Law Group.

Texas Lawyer spoke recently with Stewart about the special challenges divorced parents with shared custody have when confronted with uncertain school district plans

The University of Toronto’s law school is facing international and internal criticism, accused of caving in to pressure from a sitting federal judge not to hire a human-rights director because of her scholarship on Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories.

The law school has been attempting to fill the job of director of its International Human Rights Law Program, which has been vacant for a year. A hiring committee recommended Valentina Azarova, a published scholar with academic experience in several countries, including Germany, Britain and at Al-Quds University in East Jerusalem. An online biographical note says she is associate editor of the Oxford Reports on International Human Rights Law and United Nations Treaty Bodies.

In an e-mail to law dean Edward Iacobucci on Sept. 12, two former directors of the program allege that

UK Government Health Advisers Say Missing School Is Greater Risk to Kids Than COVID | World News

LONDON (Reuters) – The chief medical officers of the United Kingdom have said children should return to school after the summer holidays, warning that missing out on their education posed much bigger risks to them than catching COVID-19.

The rare joint statement from the top health advisers to the governments of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland represents a boost for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson who has said getting children back to school is a national priority.

Confidence in the government’s approach to schooling during the coronavirus pandemic took a hit last week when education minister Gavin Williamson was forced into an embarrassing U-turn over examination results.

“Very few, if any, children or teenagers will come to long term harm from COVID-19 due solely to attending school,” they said. “This has to be set against a certainty of long-term harm to many children and young people from not attending
