Should only MMR vaccinated children be allowed a school place?

the guardian - Τρίτη, 04/06/2019 - 08:45

A measles outbreak at three London schools has reopened the debate about vaccination

A measles outbreak at three London schools has prompted Public Health England to issue an urgent warning to headteachers, asking them to encourage staff, parents and children to get the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine.

Measles cases worldwide rose by 300% during the first three months of 2019 and annual vaccination rates in the UK have fallen below the target of 95% of the population for several years.

Boris Johnson's schools pledge is more a matter of difference than cost

the guardian - Δευτέρα, 03/06/2019 - 19:51

It would take an extra £48.6m a year to meet pledge of spending £5,000 per pupil

Given that he has a bit of form with such pledges, Boris Johnson’s promise that he would ensure every secondary school in England would spend £5,000 per pupil per year was bound to raise an eyebrow or two.

The first – and most obvious – question to be raised by the promise made by the frontrunner to replace Theresa May as prime minister is whether the money is there to fund it. The Treasury has been squeezing schools’ spending since 2010 as part of the government’s austerity drive, so would Philip Hammond (no big fan of the former foreign secretary) simply say no?

The solution to today’s puzzle

Earlier today I set you the following puzzle:

Four dogs are in four corners of a square of side length 1. Each dog starts running towards the dog immediately anti-clockwise to it. The dogs start at the same time, they all run at the same speed, and at every moment each dog is running directly towards the neighbouring dog.

Esther McVey unfit to be an MP after LGBT comments, says Labour

the guardian - Δευτέρα, 03/06/2019 - 18:39

Angela Rayner calls Tory leadership candidate’s views ‘illegal, immoral and dangerous’

Labour has accused the Conservative leadership hopeful Esther McVey of being unfit to be an MP after she repeated her view that parents should be allowed to take primary-aged children out of lessons on same-sex relationships.

Angela Rayner, the shadow education secretary, said McVey’s arguments in favour of letting parents take young children out of LGBT education were “illegal, immoral and deeply dangerous”.

I’ve had children at school for 27 years. At last I can stop pretending to like it | Suzanne Moore

No more parents’ evenings, PTA meetings and tedious texts about rules – I can’t wait for my youngest to leave next week

School’s out for ever. Just one more week and I will be free. FREE! I cannot tell you how I long for the end of school. You see, in the bizarre sociological experiment that is my life, I have had one child or another in school for about 27 years, and my youngest finishes next week. I have done my time. Obviously I sacrificed my offspring for the sake of my political principles, so these were state schools, of course. I never ever want to hear another person saying they believe in state education, but just not for their very special child. Pray that I never need to inhale the stench of that angsty hypocrisy again while some dolt explains it is only “natural” to want the best for one’s children – as though I want the worst for mine.

Gentrification is there in the class pictures. Those of my eldest are racially mixed and those of my youngest are not

A quick mental run-around

Today’s problem is a classic puzzle and an excuse to post this picture of Melbourne’s annual sausage dog race, the Running of the Wieners.

Four dogs are in four corners of a square of side length 1. Each dog starts running towards the dog immediately anti-clockwise to it. The dogs start at the same time, they all run at the same speed, and at every moment each dog is running directly towards the neighbouring dog.
