Where did all the GCSE pupils go – and why has no one noticed? | Education | The Guardian
[ underachieving taking pupils off roll to boost class/school rating! League Table. unintended consequences! macro over micro + staff shortage, pressure, not money, less money! making the short cut to let underachievers and trouble makers go. classic american school dropout. in childhood already left behind! ] Earlier this month, Sean Harford, Ofsted’s national director, said that from now on inspectors should question headteachers during inspections when large numbers of students have left. And Amanda Spielman, the chief inspector, described “off-rolling”, alongside other results-boosting methods, as a scandal.

Our investigation shows that even though the inspectorate recognised this as a national problem going back to 2010, it has not done anything about it.

The research organisation Education Datalab recently published reports on pupils leaving their secondary schools, following an investigation by Education Guardian in 2014. It raised concerns that 20,000 pupils were being lost to state education altogether, with no one knowing where they had gone. The reports do not show whether pupils were encouraged to move or left of their own volition. Those who had disappeared were mostly lower achievers.

Front-line police being 'tucked away' from communities - BBC News
A report has warned that neighbourhood policing in parts of England and Wales is at risk because officers are having to carry out other duties away from their local communities. HM Inspectorate of Constabulary says in some cases, front-line teams are spending as little as half their time on the beat.

Inequality and the Challenge of Employment - New Economic Thinking - YouTube
intrinsic motivation, fairness, social animal - social comparison (is encoded into the brain) - status anxiety // self-interest mostly wins over ethics/moral values? // trust between principle & agent // org structure and inventive - ie bonus variable attracts more selfish people and risk takers // justice and fairness is critically important - not only in orgs but also democracies //&! Natural rate theory (equilibrium) - service sector jobs (unskilled manual labour jobs) w minimum wage and not higher. and flexible wages with no minimum wage (USA) create working poor/inequality. institutional change - economists are not just analysts they also affect policy makers (think tanks). // austerity hurts equality/social mobility = economic long-run damage to potential (thus output gap and productivity loss) - lack of supply of able workforce to create added value products & services. trickle-down not helping. //&! tax code unfair, lower capital gains tax than on earned (labour) income
