Post-school education in England attacked in Lords report

the guardian - Δευτέρα, 11/06/2018 - 02:01

Peers says system is geared too much towards universities and offers poor value for money

Tertiary education in England is heavily skewed in favour of universities, but offers poor value for money for students and the economy, according to a critical report by the House of Lords.

The report by the Lords’ economic affairs committee calls for immediate reform of the funding system and concludes that changes introduced in 2012 - when university fees were raised to £9,000 a year – have overbalanced funding for 18-year-olds towards universities while heaping debt on students.

Let Oxford stump up the cash for better adult education | Letters

the guardian - Sun, 10/06/2018 - 19:46
Nigel Todd says the centenary of an epic report on adult education provides a good opportunity, while Jol Miskin says Oxford University should campaign for adult education for all

Jonathan Michie (Letters, 6 June) and John Holford (Letters, 31 May), both distinguished in the field of adult education, demonstrate the continuing vibrancy of debate about the future of adult learning. In recent years, the commitment to maintaining a broad education provision for adults has been diminished, marginalised or restricted. Allowing for exceptions, this is generally true across the university and further education sectors, and among local authorities and voluntary organisations.

But moves are under way to use next year as a chance to raise the profile of adult learning. The centenary of an epic report on adult education, produced by the wartime Ministry of Reconstruction and published in 1919 and which set the framework for educating adults for much of the last century, is a spark to set our ambitions alight.

Hipster beards and plaid shirts for all – it’s scientific fact | Sophie Heawood

the guardian - Sun, 10/06/2018 - 12:00
Just one in four people can change the minds of others. So the modish will take over the world

Some research published last week has put the fear of God into ordinary folk around the country, who have learned they will now have their ideas led by bearded hipsters. Science magazine reported that sociologists at the University of Pennsylvania had conducted an experiment in which 200 people were shown a face and asked to give the person a name – any name.

To win, they had to come up with the same random name that an anonymous partner picked. After a while, the discarded names, which were later revealed to the players, grew in popularity (suggestion working its power) until the same names started to crop up again and again. Within 25 rounds of one game, everyone had called the face Simone.
