Glasgow School of Art: sprinklers had not been fitted after first fire

the guardian - Sun, 17/06/2018 - 16:08

Hopes rise that Mackintosh facade can be saved amid questions over why sprinkler system was not prioritised

Hopes have been raised that Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh building, which was gutted by fire on Friday night, can be saved as it emerged that a new sprinkler system had not yet been fitted as part of the restoration following an earlier blaze.

Yes, we can teach our children about technology, but let’s just ban phones in school | Sona Sodha

the guardian - Sun, 17/06/2018 - 11:59
We need to provide safe spaces where kids can learn positive online behaviours

When I heard that Eton now requires its year 7s to hand in their mobile phones at bedtime, my immediate thought was I quite like the idea of a check-in, zone-out service that would confiscate my smartphone as the Love Island credits start to roll and return it in time for the 8am news bulletin. But if Eton expects its 13-year-old boarders to hand in their phones overnight, where are they the rest of the time? And why are older boys allowed to keep their phones overnight?

On schools and smartphones, I’m an enthusiastic proponent of the nanny state. After Emmanuel Macron made it a key pledge in his presidential campaign, the French government is banning mobile phones in schools altogether after September. In the UK, the decision is left to headteachers: some ban them, others take a more permissive approach.

If we were really smart, we’d get over our fixation on the IQ test | David Olusoga

the guardian - Sun, 17/06/2018 - 08:00

Scores are falling across the world, provoking headlines of ‘dumbing down’. But what does it measure anyway?

IQ tests have a troubled history. Although their inventor, the intellectually cautious Frenchman Alfred Binet, understood and acknowledged their limitations, many of those who went on to deploy and develop his ideas did not. Within years of their emergence, IQ tests were being used by US eugenicists to weed out the “feebleminded”, and by politicians keen to cloak their calls for greater racial segregation and changes to American immigration laws with a degree of scientific legitimacy.

From the start, Binet’s tests were also drawn into the debate over whether human intelligence is predominantly hereditary or better understood as a reflection of environmental factors such as education – one part of the sprawling nature v nurture debate.

Glasgow School of Art: ‘It should have been the safest building’

Witnesses’ shock and disbelief as second fire devastates Mackintosh architectural masterpiece

The hosepipes snaked all the way down to the river Clyde, thick with water, as firefighters smothered the last of the flames on Friday night. While they worked, students and artists, architects and sculptors gathered in the streets around the Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Building – Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s art nouveau masterpiece – to find out what had happened, and ask: four years after the Mack was devastated by fire, how could it happen again?

“It should have been the safest building in Glasgow,” Margaret Archbold said. The 48-year-old artist graduated from the school in 1994 and was looking forward to the building’s reopening next year.

Glasgow School of Art may be beyond repair after second fire

School’s professor of architecture says Mackintosh building ‘looks totally destroyed’

Fears were mounting last night that the Glasgow School of Art will be beyond repair after a devastating fire ripped through the Mackintosh building for a second time in four years.

Initial inspections suggested that the grade A-listed art school, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and completed in 1909, has been gutted and its roof and upper floors almost entirely destroyed by the blaze that took hold on Friday night. Alan Dunlop, the school’s professor of architecture, said: “I can’t see any restoration possible for the building itself. It looks totally destroyed.”

Mackintosh’s building lived and breathed its purpose. How can this happen again?

the guardian - Sat, 16/06/2018 - 20:59

With Glasgow’s School of Art – a working testament to the genius of Charles Rennie Mackintosh – engulfed by flames again, anger is growing amid a demand for answers

On Friday night, in a hard city never knowingly defeated, optimism had fled. The Glasgow School of Art, the working testament to the genius of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, was engulfed in flames once more four years after a devastating fire had threatened the fabled Mac building. Its £35m re-birth following years of meticulous craftsmanship was only months away; the scaffolding which had been its temporary sarcophagus was being dismantled. Now fire service chiefs are preparing Glasgow for the worst.

Four years ago the over-riding emotion was one of grief. Mackintosh’s building, sitting at the top of one of Glasgow’s many elevated boulevards, was a source of fierce pride that carried well beyond the artists and teachers who called it home. If any stonework could ever be described as delicate it was Mackintosh’s in this building. Perhaps an awareness of this fragility lay near the root of Glaswegians’ curious love for this building. Once you had seen it you felt you shared in a communal duty of care towards it. Even those who had never set foot in it – nor are ever likely to – knew about this place and knew it needed to be protected.

Leftwing group at odds with Corbyn pushes for UK to stay in EU

the guardian - Sat, 16/06/2018 - 13:45

Student organisation NCAFC says it will join anti-Brexit demonstrations this summer

A leftwing organisation that led demonstrations against student fees and Tory higher education reforms has set itself at odds with Jeremy Corbyn over Brexit by pledging to step up campaigns to keep the UK in the EU and maintain free movement of workers.

The move by the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts (NCAFC), which says it will join anti-Brexit demonstrations this summer and autumn by the National Union of Students (NUS) and organise a “radical, leftwing pro-migrant bloc”, is another sign of young people mobilising increasingly against the UK’s scheduled exit from the EU in March next year.

Oklahoma teachers' salary raise in limbo following historic win

the guardian - Sat, 16/06/2018 - 13:00

Petition backed by conservative activists targets tax hikes intended to cover teachers’ raise

Striking Oklahoma teachers, the worst paid in the US, won a historic pay rise in the spring. Now, conservative groups have targeted the tax hikes earmarked to pay them, and by November the cash could be gone, leaving schools and educators in limbo.

In March, teacher salaries in Oklahoma were raised by an average of $6,100 a year, a raise paid for by a bill that raised taxes for cigarettes, cigars, motor and diesel fuel and the gross production of energy, and initially a $5-a-night hotel tax.
