Newcastle University faces student backlash over stalker’s return | Education

A petition calling on the university to remove anyone convicted of stalking from campus has attracted more than 1,200 signatures. The protest comes after Amy, whose name has been changed to protect her identity, asked the university to bar Jefferson Young after his conviction last year for stalking and revenge porn. The student…

Even Many Public Universities Refuse to Reveal Professors’ Conflicts of Interest – Education Article

Sharon Donovan and Richard Mattes have a lot in common. Both are full professors of nutrition science at leading public universities. Both sit on a federal advisory committee that helps craft the nation’s dietary guidelines. And both have extensive ties to the food industry. That last similarity isn’t easy to uncover. Donovan, who teaches at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has reported in required state filings that she received gifts, honoraria, or consulting income from infant-formula companies such as Wyeth…

People listen to Greta Thunberg because of her creativity, not just her science | Lisette Johnston | Education

Blue Planet, Extinction Rebellion and Greta Thunberg are all household names bringing information about serious environmental issues to the masses. They’ve helped green issues shoot up the agenda for this year’s general election, with a poll last month revealing that more than half of voters said that the climate emergency would influence how they cast their vote. If it wasn’t for the media these scientific messages wouldn’t be heard or understood by millions of people. And Greta Thunberg’s extraordinary global…

Boris beware: students are angry and we’re ready to vote against you | Zamzam Ibrahim | Education

If 1.3 million under-34s voting in 2017 was a “youthquake”, what would you call the 2.6 million registering this time around? The surge in youth and student voter registrations is no accident. Students and their unions have been working tirelessly for months: we started registering students during freshers’ week because we were determined to be ready when a general election was called. All that organising wouldn’t be effective without the fuel for social change: anger, disillusionment, injustice, and hope. The…

CORRECTION: An Apology to Pete Buttigieg and the Racially Integrated Public Schools of South Bend, Indiana – Education Article

Several readers of this blog who live in South Bend, Indiana, wrote to say that Fred Klonsky is wrong about Pete Buttigieg and the status of racial integration in the public schools of South Bend. One native of South Bend wrote as follows. Fred Klonsky’s article is simplistic and wildly inaccurate and Mr. Buttigieg’s statement about “school districts” is absolutely correct. First, South Bend Community School Corporation is under a desegregation consent decree, and for many years, almost all of its…

University pension crisis is result of mania and mismanagement | Letters | Education

The race-to-the-bottom logic from two former professors of cutting “gold-plated” university pensions to pay for future generations (Letters, 3 December) is uncalled for. University employers actually boast in their strike-breaking propaganda that the average pension is £17,000 pa. If we old professors get more, others – those who retired as lecturers, or entered the profession late in life – are already getting less. Worse, Waspi women who lost out in the gender pay gap are simultaneously robbed by the retrospective…

Hour of Code: How Students Can Build Their Own Apps – Education Article

In my high school teacher forums, as part of the discussion on preparing kids for college and career, we talk a lot about the huge shortfall in applicants for a growing list of tech jobs. Despite robust pay, excellent work conditions, and the value they place on creativity, jobs sit open. How do we get kids excited about careers that traditionally sound boring and math-oriented? Websites like Code.org have a great approach to making coding accessible to all kids but…

Why Chick-fil-A Matters in my Classroom. – Education Article

It was Christmas dinner 2017, and the talk was of a new (and only) Chick-fil-A opening in our central New York area. My family endorsed the taste of their remarkable chicken and delicious drinks. Discussions of their charity and fundraisers abounded. As I listened to the conversations, I felt myself grow smaller. It was like an out of body experience as I observed myself shrinking in importance. My views on equality and progress froze in the face of a hard…

Teachers ask children to ‘tell the truth’. Voters would like the same from the Tories | Michael Rosen | Education

I don’t know what you did wrong, but the Conservative party team seem to have been be working hard to keep you off our screens as you all seek re-election. That’s a pity. I was looking forward to seeing you answer questions about such things as the expansion of grammar schools, the chronic underfunding of special needs provision and the just-as-chronic underfunding of school buildings maintenance. I was also hoping to see fact-checkers get to grips with whatever justification you…
