Domestic abuse victims are ignored because some police officers see it as a 'lifestyle choice', report finds

Child victims of domestic abuse are being ignored because some police officers see it as a “lifestyle choice”, a major report has found. Authorities must undergo a “sea-change” in their attitudes, inspectors have warned, after finding that at times, victims have been “incorrectly held responsible for the risk of domestic abuse”. Authors of a report, titled “Prevent, protect and repair”, said social workers, police, health professionals, youth offending teams and probation services must focus more on perpetrators rather than just victims. The report - written by inspectors from Ofsted, the Care Quality Commission, HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services, and HM

Boys are better at physics because they learn about 'projection' while going to the toilet, researchers say

Boys are better at Physics because they learn about “projection” while going to the toilet, researchers have claimed. From a young age, boys are taught about how to aim accurately so that they do not make a mess in the bathroom, and this gives them a better understanding of “projectile motion”, according to three academics. Writing for Times Education Supplement (TES), Anna Wilson of Abertay University along with Kate Wilson and David Low of the University of New South Wales Canberra, explained their theory. “Playful urination practices – from seeing how high you can pee to games such as Peeball (where men compete using their urine to destroy a ball placed in a urinal) –

Students who planned to hold a charity auction during freshers’ week are now under investigation by the university authorities over the event’s association with “slavery”. Two events, titled “slave auction” and a “slave night”, were advertised as part of the entertainment programme laid on for new students at Loughborough University during their first week of term. The social gatherings - organised by Faraday Hall, one of the university's halls of residence - provoked an outcry from the university’s African-Caribbean Society (ACS), which said they showed a “blatant disregard for coloured people”.

Tories refuse to reverse school budget cuts as new funding formula is announced

International Teaching

7/9/17

The Government has been accused of “papering over the cracks” after it announced a new funding formula for schools that will see budgets fall in real terms and which “does nothing” to reverse cuts that have already been made.  Justine Greening, the Education Secretary, said schools will be given a funding rise of 0.5 per cent per pupil next year and a 1 per cent increase in 2019-20. The most under-funded schools will see their budgets rise by 3 per cent. Ms Greening announced in July that an additional £1.3bn will be invested in primary and secondary education. 'Worrying rise' in exclusion rates for children with autism

Primary education is fundamentally important to ensuring that every child receives the best possible start in life. As I set out in my statement to Parliament in March this year, the primary assessment and accountability system has a crucial role to play in ensuring that every child, no matter what their background or where they go to school, benefits from a high-quality primary education. Last October, I set out my intention to establish a settled, trusted primary assessment system. To help us move towards this, we published earlier this year parallel consultation documents on the long-term future of primary assessment and on future assessment arrangements for children working below the

Is ‘disability’ a word your students associate with the war in Syria? Much has been written about the conflict but few people realise it is one of the most disabling wars in history.
