School Cuts coalition warns of real-terms cuts despite government’s cash injection

Four in five state schools in England will be financially worse off next year than they were in 2015 despite promises by Boris Johnson’s government of a multibillion-pound funding boost, according to research by teachers’ unions.

The School Cuts coalition of six unions, which spearheaded a national campaign for more funding in schools, has conducted an analysis of recent government announcements which it says shows that more than 80% of schools will have less funding per pupil in real terms in 2020 than they did in 2015.

In another interview, asked if he had squeezed the thigh of the journalist Charlotte Edwardes 20 years ago, Boris Johnson replied:

No, and I think what the public want to hear is about what we are doing to level up and unite the country.

I’m just saying what I’ve said. What the public want to hear is what we are doing for them and for the country and the investment in ways of uniting the country.

Not at all. I think what the public want to hear is what we are doing to bring the country together and get on with improving their lives.

I think I would make one general comment. I think there is a lot of people who basically want to stop us delivering Brexit on October 31.

I returned to uni for freshers’ week 20 years after leaving. Here’s what has changed

the guardian - Δευτέρα, 30/09/2019 - 12:59

There’s more teetotalism – and students are more likely to have a job. As term begins, our writer visits Glasgow, her alma mater, to hear the hopes and fears of four first-years

In the autumn of 1997, I was a fresher at the University of Glasgow. Months after the Labour landslide, weeks after the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, I was an 18-year-old British-Indian made up of equal parts teenage kicks, terror and Topshop and on my way to Scotland for the first time, to live and study in a city I had never even visited. I was a 90s Londoner in every sense: geographically ignorant, cocky, earnestly carrying a pager. North, to me, meant north of the Thames. Yet there I was, on a train nosing true north on the west coast mainline.

At Euston station, I was waved off by my parents. I remember nothing of this momentous goodbye. In Carlisle, I felt a great sense of occasion because I thought we had crossed the border. By Motherwell, I was all grown up. In Glasgow, seeing the towering gothic spire of the fourth oldest university in the UK from my cab window, I thought it was the cathedral. When the driver informed me that it was, in fact, my university, I gasped. Had I even seen the prospectus?

The Canadian prime minister achieved a historic victory in 2015 but as he nears the end of his first term a series of scandals are making his political future less certain.
