Students, mentors and musicians based at the Tileyard studios in King’s Cross, north London, say their programme is currently being run like “the business version of sofa-surfing”.

the guardian - Sat, 03/08/2019 - 23:00
Risk of axed exams and food shortages, while informing the public ‘may cause panic’

Schools may have to close, exams could be disrupted and fresh food for pupils’ meals could run short because of panic buying with prices soaring by up to 20%, according to a secret Department for Education analysis of the risks of a no-deal Brexit obtained by the Observer.

The five-page document – marked “Official Sensitive” and with the instruction “Do Not Circulate” – also raises the possibility of teacher absences caused by travel disruption, citing schools in Kent as particularly at risk.

Disadvantaged schools 'will gain least from new Tory funding'

the guardian - Fri, 02/08/2019 - 02:01

Extra £4.6bn a year promised by Boris Johnson will favour affluent areas, says thinktank

Boris Johnson’s pledge to “level up” pupil funding in English schools will benefit grammar schools and those in more affluent areas, while schools serving the most disadvantaged communities will miss out, a report claims.

The new prime minister has promised to ensure that “historically underfunded” schools will see an uplift, and that there will be an increase in minimum levels of per pupil funding, from £3,500 to £4,000 in primaries, and from £4,800 to £5,000 in secondaries.

'Sent out in the dark': why disabled graduates struggle to find work

the guardian - Thu, 01/08/2019 - 16:57

Many disabled students experience a sudden drop-off in support during the time between graduating from university and entering the workplace

Holly Tuke, 23, a recent graduate who is registered as blind, went to her university careers service in her second year to get advice on finding a job. They recommended she apply for work as a bus driver – work she couldn’t do. “It was frustrating because they clearly didn’t understand my disability,” she says. “And because of that I never went back to ask for help again.”

Disabled students face various challenges when they graduate, whether it’s working out whether to disclose a disability to potential employers, considering when and how to ask for adjustments during a job application process, navigating psychometric tests, tackling prejudice and stigma, or dealing with unprepared employers.

Phony business: are today's teens turning on The Catcher in the Rye?

the guardian - Thu, 01/08/2019 - 10:00

JD Salinger’s Holden Caulfield once seemed the universal voice of teenage angst, but now he’s too quaint for young people. Can we learn to love it again, asks Dana Czapnik

Here’s a thought. Teen angst, once regarded as stubbornly generic, is actually a product of each person’s unique circumstances: gender, race, class, era. Angst is universal, but the content of it is particular.

This might explain why Holden Caulfield, once the universal everyteen, does not speak to this generation in the way he’s spoken to young people in the past. Electric Literature gave this explanation of The Catcher in the Rye’s datedness: “If you’re a white, relatively affluent, permanently grouchy young man with no real problems at all, it’s extraordinarily relatable. The problem comes when you’re not. Where’s The Catcher in the Rye for the majority of readers who are too non-young, non-white, and non-male to be able to stand listening to Holden Caulfield feel sorry for himself?”
