the guardian - Τρίτη, 11/06/2019 - 02:01

Vulnerable children miss out on vital support in earliest years due to cuts, study finds

Spending on speech and language therapy has fallen in many areas of the country and children in need of SLT are subject to a postcode lottery of provision because of huge disparities across England, research has found.

The study by the children’s commissioner for England, Anne Longfield, says that too many vulnerable young children are missing out on vital support in their earliest years, with far-reaching implications for their progress and life chances.

Special needs pupils ‘less likely to go from school nursery into its reception’

the guardian - Δευτέρα, 10/06/2019 - 18:29

Findings fuel fears that some schools not admitting children with Send amid funding cuts

Children with special educational needs and disabilities (Send) are significantly less likely to progress from a school’s nursery into its reception than their classmates who have no special needs, according to research.

A study by the London School of Economics and Political Science found that more than a quarter (26%) of children with a statement of Send move from the school where they attended nursery to another school for reception, compared with 18% of children with no recorded Send.

Gerraway with accentism – I’m proud to speak Yorkshire | Katie Edwards

the guardian - Δευτέρα, 10/06/2019 - 08:00
Despite attempts to stamp it out at school and in the workplace, my dialect is alive, kicking and bloody gorgeous

Hopefully you haven’t subjected yourself to Still Open All Hours, the mystifyingly popular sequel to the classic Ronnie Barker comedy series of the 1970s-80s. If you have endured a whole episode then you’ll know that the Yorkshire dialect is a key element of the show’s humour. I watch David Jason’s Doncaster-based japes with a stony face. Perhaps the charm of the series is lost on me because I’m bored out of my chuffing mind by seeing Yorkshire’s working-class communities parodied for comic effect.

We’re used to these trite “wi’ nowt teken owt” portrayals of regional dialect. Still Open All Hours, like Last of the Summer Wine, stands in a long tradition of hackneyed portrayals of bolshy but benign Yorkshire-sounding characters offering gentle, down-to-earth “by ‘eck, lad’ humour” with their hilarious flat vowels.

Teaching children about LGBT issues is not brainwashing – it equips them for life | Russell Hobby

the guardian - Sun, 09/06/2019 - 20:27
Parents’ rights do not trump all. Teachers need the support of the government on this highly charged issue

Last week, a high court injunction banned protesters against the teaching of LGBT-inclusive lessons from gathering outside the school gates of Anderton Park primary school in Birmingham. But on Monday, there is a chance that this could be lifted.

Whatever happens, it is clear we need wider resolution on this debate in order to draw a firm line under it. To do so there are two challenges we need to tackle. One is the call of parental rights. The other is the idea of what is “age appropriate”.

‘Prejudiced’ Home Office refusing visas to African researchers

the guardian - Sat, 08/06/2019 - 23:07

Academics invited to the UK are refused entry on arbitrary and ‘insulting’ grounds

The Home Office is being accused of institutional racism and damaging British research projects through increasingly arbitrary and “insulting” visa refusals for academics.

In April, a team of six Ebola researchers from Sierra Leone were unable to attend vital training in the UK, funded by the Wellcome Trust as part of a £1.5m flagship pandemic preparedness programme. At the LSE Africa summit, also in April, 24 out of 25 researchers were missing from a single workshop. Shortly afterwards, the Save the Children centenary events were marred by multiple visa refusals of key guests.

Telesup school’s fake façade called ‘a symbol of Peruvian university system’

the guardian - Sat, 08/06/2019 - 10:30

Education inspectors revealed the university had failed to get accreditation, prompting the state to order a shutdown

From the street, the newest site of the Telesup university in Lima appeared to be a gleaming, glass-fronted 7-story tower. Inside, however, students were surprised to find the stairs only reached the fourth floor.

Drone photos published this week revealed that the top three floors were just a façade supported by metal struts, in an episode which has cast an unflattering spotlight on Peru’s booming private university industry – widely seen to be rife with sub-standard education and profiteering.
