and established a revolutionary government in its place. Following their seizure of power, the Sandinistas ruled Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990, first as part of a Junta of National Reconstruction . Following the resignation of centrist members from this Junta, the FSLN took exclusive power in March 1981. Oppositional militias, known as Contras , formed in 1981 to resist the Sandinista's Junta and received support from the American Central Intelligence Agency .

Better Training on Early Years Urged for Principals
Barbara Chester, president of the National Association of Elementary School Principals, advocates for more principal training for early-childhood education. The nation’s elementary school principals lack access to the focused professional development to help them meet the higher expectations of modern early-childhood education, experts and advocates say.

When we talked about events in history class, the teacher would show us maps, but never did I get a larger perspective on geography, only what mattered for the material we were covering. I also learned about Germany and the countries surrounding it from my German class, and I know my friends who took a class called "Global Insights" had to learn the location of every country. In elementary school, I also could sing all 50 states ...
