Young people more sceptical of need to go to university, poll finds

the guardian - Thu, 15/08/2019 - 02:01

Only 65% of under-16s think it is important to go to university, compared with 86% in 2013

Young people in Britain are increasingly sceptical of the need to go to university and are more aware of apprenticeships, according to polling, as a record proportion of school-leavers await their A-level results.

More than 300,000 sixth formers across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will find out the results of their summer exams on Thursday and in many cases use the grades to gain places on undergraduate courses. But only two-thirds of young people rate a university education as important, according to the poll conducted by Ipsos MORI for the Sutton Trust.

the guardian - Wed, 14/08/2019 - 16:52

We want to hear from students and teachers why English is declining as a choice for A-level pupils

Once a popular subject choice for sixth formers, schools are now seeing a sharp drop in the take-up of English literature and language at A-level.

This year, entries for all types of English A-level fell by 13%, sparking an outcry from authors and teachers that pupils have been put off studying the subject at a higher level.

Ibram X Kendi on why not being racist is not enough

the guardian - Wed, 14/08/2019 - 12:00

The historian on how he confronted his own racism and the lessons he learned along the way, the far right’s abuse of free speech, and why the rise of the Squad gives him hope

It is a moment that disturbs Ibram X Kendi to this day. It was the 90s, and Kendi – then in his final year of high school – was due to deliver a speech at a public-speaking contest held in Martin Luther King’s honour.

“When we think of American history in the 90s, we’re really talking about the period in which people in both political parties, people of all races were looking at the increasing violent crimes among black youth, particularly in urban neighbourhoods, as fundamentally caused by a problem with the black youth; the growing percentage of single-parent households,” he says, setting the scene. “We had people thinking that the cause of that was that there was something wrong with young, black mothers.”

‘Every day we see really hungry kids. They shouldn’t be living like this’ | Tom Wall

the guardian - Wed, 14/08/2019 - 09:30

In England’s poorest areas, summer holiday hunger schemes are being starved of cash, leaving many children short of food

Thirteen children gather eagerly around a pile of brown paper bags crammed with sandwiches, yoghurts and fruit in a youth centre on the deprived north-west fringes of Bristol. This holiday club on the sprawling Lawrence Weston estate is being supplied with free lunches as part of a charity-funded push to help low-income families cope with the extra costs of feeding children over the six-week school break.
