'It's a turning point': Oklahoma teachers buoyed by success of 110-mile march

the guardian - Thu, 12/04/2018 - 00:19

Marchers mobbed at state capitol after concluding their historic march to call for greater funds and increased wages

“Uh-oh, Trojans coming through! Uh-oh, Trojans coming through!” shouted the three dozen members of the Douglas high school as black and Latino teenagers banged on drums and set the beat.

Oklahoma’s teachers may not have won their call for increased wages and funding for education – yet. But after completing a 110-mile march from Tulsa to Oklahoma City to highlight the parlous state of their school system there was an air of expectation and excitement as they and their supporters reached the state capital.

Parents hit out at plans to increase oversight of home education

Home schooling community says government proposals undermine parental rights and cast suspicion

Parents who home-school their children have hit out at government proposals to increase oversight of home education, saying they undermine parental rights and cast suspicion on those who choose not to put their children in school.

They were responding to plans, published by the Department for Education on Tuesday, intended to address what is seen by some in the sector as an unusually permissive approach to children being educated outside mainstream schooling.

The Guardian view on medical dangers: evolution in action | Editorial

the guardian - Wed, 11/04/2018 - 19:46
The emergence of new strains of bacteria which can resist antibiotics or digest processed foodstuffs in our guts shows the law of unintended consequences operates everywhere

The first case anywhere in the world of a strain of gonorrhea resistant to all known antibiotics was reported late last month. The diagnosis was made in England, but it appears that the infection came from an encounter in south-east Asia. Antibiotic resistance is a global problem, and can’t be confined to any one part of the world for long. Last autumn a woman died in the US of an infection apparently picked up in an Indian hospital which was impervious to all 14 antibiotics in her hospital; later tests showed it was also resistant to the other 12 drugs available to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The dangers of antibiotic resistance are by now well understood, even if action to diminish them is slow and uncoordinated. The growth of superbugs is not just caused by overprescription in developed countries and completely uncontrolled usage in developing countries, where they are rationed only by price. It is also a product of the widespread use of antibiotics in factory farming, where they are used to keep animal populations at a density which would be impossible in nature. In all these cases, we have set up evolutionary pressures which favour the emergence of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, and evolution has responded in its usual creative way. Around half of the detected cases of infection with the campylobacter bacterium in chickens in British shops involve antibiotic-resistant strains. Campylobacter is unpleasant, but seldom deadly, and can in any case be killed by thorough cooking.

Government unveils controversial plans for testing four-year-olds

the guardian - Wed, 11/04/2018 - 15:47

Baseline assessments of all primary school pupils in England face widespread opposition

Plans to roll out the testing of four-year-olds in their first weeks at school have been unveiled by the government in the face of widespread hostility from many teachers who have vowed to oppose the new assessments.

Ministers say the controversial new baseline assessments in reception classes will measure the progress a child makes from the start of primary school to the age of 11 and provide a fairer measure of the effectiveness of schools.

Spend more aid on early years education for a life of opportunity | Sarah Brown

the guardian - Wed, 11/04/2018 - 12:30

Why is education for young children still overlooked even though the huge benefits of this investment are obvious to all?

A child’s most important steps happen before they set foot in a primary school. By their fifth birthday, their brain will already be 90% developed and the foundations for success at school and in later life will be in place.

However, despite all the evidence that pre-primary education is vital, millions of children continue to miss out on the chance of a great start in life. Access to pre-primary education continues to be a lottery, dependent on where a child is born.

Activism in the art world: meet the next generation of radical curators

the guardian - Wed, 11/04/2018 - 12:18

Curation offers an opportunity to confront the lack of diversity in the arts by addressing issues of gender, race and sexuality

Activism is having a renaissance. We live in the age of zeitgeist movements like #OscarsSoWhite and #Metoo, of millions thrumming the streets in support of the Women’s March, Black Lives Matter and March for Our Lives.

Curatorial activism is the art world’s equivalent. “It’s the practice of organising art exhibitions with the principal aim of ensuring that large constituencies of people are no longer ghettoised or excluded from the master narratives of art,” says curator Maura Reilly. Its mission is to get the art world to understand that issues of gender, race and sexuality require urgent attention.

How do we build more inclusive universities? | Kalwant Bhopal

the guardian - Wed, 11/04/2018 - 09:30

Race is still a disadvantage for black and minority ethnic staff and students. We need radical change to level the playing field

Radical changes are needed in the UK education system to demonstrate that inclusion, social justice and equity are being taken seriously. Schools, colleges and universities must be held more accountable for their practices, and demonstrate that they are implementing policies with concrete outcomes for the inclusion of black and minority ethnic staff and students.

Race continues to remain a disadvantage for those from black and minority ethnic groups. By virtue of their non-white identity, black and minority ethnic groups continue to be positioned as outsiders, marginalising them in all aspects of society.
