Cambridge gives role to academic accused of racist stereotyping

the guardian - Fri, 07/12/2018 - 20:27

University professors among hundreds who object to award of research job to Noah Carl

University of Cambridge professors and academics from around the world have criticised the appointment of a social scientist whose work they say has stoked “racist, xenophobic, fascist and anti-immigration rhetoric”.

A letter protesting about the appointment of Noah Carl to a prestigious research fellowship at St Edmund’s College claims that Carl’s work focuses on “academically discredited lines of inquiry” involving race and genetics.

Oxbridge needs to guarantee places for the best state school pupils | Owen Jones

the guardian - Fri, 07/12/2018 - 14:14
Figures show eight top schools feed Oxford and Cambridge. I know how the system works against those from state schools

Oxbridge does not represent Britain’s best or the brightest: let’s just get that out of the way. Many of the country’s most intelligent, thoughtful and perceptive people do not attend either Oxford or Cambridge. Both institutions are instead, disproportionately, attended by the best performing slice of the most economically privileged teenagers in the country. So the figures released today, which elicit a depressing sense of deja vu, that eight top schools send as many pupils to Oxbridge as three-quarters of all schools and colleges put together, might be shocking, but they are unsurprising. So are the findings that top performing state school students are much less likely to apply than their private school equivalents, or that private school pupils were seven times more likely to win a place than comprehensive students.

When my patient died giving birth, the reality of US maternal mortality and race hit me

the guardian - Fri, 07/12/2018 - 13:21

Pregnancy-related deaths among black women are triple those of our white counterparts

I don’t allow myself to remember much about my patient who died. I don’t remember her name. I don’t remember the date. I don’t even remember how old I was at the time. But as a result of this memory, I am forever changed.

In almost a decade of maternity nursing, I’d never had an adult patient die, and I haven’t had a patient die since. Over the past 13 years, I have delivered numerous babies who died in utero or were born alive, but were expected to die shortly after birth because of their low gestational age or conditions that were incompatible with life. I am familiar and comfortable with providing support to a family who were preparing to lose, or had just lost, a much-wanted baby. This day was different. I received a report from the nurse going off duty on a living, breathing, labouring young woman, only to leave the hospital with nothing to give to the next nurse coming on shift.

A mercenary academic produced dodgy data to sabotage my case | Anonymous academic

the guardian - Fri, 07/12/2018 - 09:00

When I gave evidence showing that an environmental toxin had caused deaths, the authorities hired a rogue scientist

Most of my job as an academic researcher is spent at my desk or in meetings, so it was with some surprise that I ended up working on a legal case. I felt like a scientist in a TV thriller. I had been contacted by someone who asked me to analyse some simple data, and the results were clear: they revealed deaths and emergency admissions to hospital caused by a known environmental toxin.

The teachers asking pupils to make the case for Christmas have a lesson for us all | Gaby Hinsliff

the guardian - Fri, 07/12/2018 - 08:00
Truths long held to be self-evident are under threat by conspiracy theorists and populists, and we are out of practice at defending them

Christmas is cancelled. There can’t be many headteachers who haven’t occasionally longed to type those three words and press “send”. ’Tis the season of precious teaching time disappearing down the plughole of nativity play rehearsals, carol services, and Christmas craft days that leave glitter trodden inextricably deep into the carpets. Is it really worth the hassle?

But only Lady Lumley’s, a secondary school in the North Yorkshire town of Pickering, has had the courage to take this thought to its logical conclusion. Its religious education teacher told students that unless they could make a persuasive argument as to why it was worth bothering with cards, parties, presents and Christmas trees then the whole thing would be binned and celebrations in school strictly confined to the baby Jesus. The inevitable parental furore, not to mention newspaper stories about stealing Christmas, followed.
