University entry 'should be background, not just exams' - BBC News
The university access watchdog says students' backgrounds should be taken into account when awarding places, to improve "equality of opportunity". A-level grades are a "robust measure" only if the applicants' "context" is also considered, Chris Millward says.

Many universities give extra help to disadvantaged applicants - but a report warns of a lack of openness about how this operates.

All Russell Group universities use some form of "contextual admissions".

Top universities have faced accusations of being socially exclusive and recruiting too few applicants from ethnic minorities.

But they also face scrutiny for being unfair to individual applicants who might lose out on places to disadvantaged candidates with worse results.

Student loans 'heading for trillion pounds' - BBC News
The conversion of means-tested grants into loans has meant that the poorest students end up graduating with the biggest debts, says Lord Forsyth.

And he warns that the current repayment system was more expensive for people in middle income jobs such as nursing, rather than high-paid lawyers or financiers, who would pay off their debts more quickly.

"The people who get screwed by this are those in the middling jobs," says Lord Forsyth.

"This was all done on the basis that it would create a market in higher education - and that has failed, there isn't a market."

Lord Forsyth says that there is no meaningful consumer choice or competition - and he dismissed the system for rating teaching quality in universities, the teaching excellence framework, as a "bit of a joke".

"Because no-one ever turns up to look at the teaching," says Lord Forsyth.

Pullman's plea to save school libraries - BBC News
Children's authors such as Philip Pullman and Malorie Blackman are calling for a halt to the "shocking decline" in England's school libraries.
They, along with 148 others, wrote to Education Secretary Justine Greening, asking her to signal her belief in the "value of literacy" for learning. [...] The letter highlights how England has lower rates of teenage literacy than other developed nations, according to international rankings.

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.

Plan to end student grants without Commons vote outrages opposition | Politics | The Guardian
[ shifting public debt onto private debt balance sheet. = no vision! debt is still there in economy! paying higher interest rates. -- vs -- bankers gambling debt put on public balance sheet! ] Ministers have been accused of an “outrageous” attempt to sneak through their proposals to end student grants in England without proper scrutiny by MPs. The plan to scrap maintenance grants, which help half a million of the poorest students pay for university life, will go through a legislation committee on Thursday, without a vote and debate on the floor of the House of Commons. [...] Labour is opposing the change and the lack of scrutiny. Gordon Marsden, the shadow universities minister, said it was “not simply technical tinkering but a major change by the government that will deprive around half a million of England’s students from lower income and disadvantaged households, of maintenance grant funding”. // &!

One-fifth of youngsters suffer from 'high anxiety' - BBC News
The study looked at the wellbeing and mental health of 7.5 million young people in the UK aged 16 to 24. [...] The figures also show a rising proportion of young people who felt dissatisfied with their health. [...] The figures from the ONS show a picture of a growing number of young people who are satisfied with their lives - but with a persistent minority reporting unhappiness or suffering from anxiety. [...] Campus anxiety [...] But in terms of anxiety, 18% report high levels of anxiety and almost 16% have "medium" levels of anxiety. In a separate measure, there are almost 21% of young people with "evidence indicating depression or anxiety". And young people's perceptions of their own physical health seemed to be progressively more negative, with more expressing dissatisfaction and fewer feeling satisfied. [F]igures for the wellbeing of younger children which showed about one in eight youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15 reported symptoms of mental ill-health.

One Map Shows Just How Expensive College Can Be for Students Making Minimum Wage
[S]ubstantial evidence that lack of information plays a critical role in shaping the financial decisions people make. Consider how a vast majority of people who are currently defaulting on their student loans in the U.S. would be able to halt their financial suffering if they knew they could enroll in an income-based repayment plan that would shrink or eliminate their monthly payments. This map goes some way toward explaining why low-income students are less likely to enroll in college. If the idea that college is a risky investment is something thats gaining traction in well-to-do circles, then surely people who hail from less fortunate backgrounds are even more inclined to think the potential price is too high. // could be seen as balance sheet recession: rising cost of education - & on other side - unable 2 pay w job u can get (asset value).

Millennials Can't Afford Cars, and Are Fine With That - Bloomberg View
As somebody who wondered in a column last week whether people in developed countries were perhaps learning that they no longer needed as much stuff as they used to, and whether this might lead to big shifts in the global economy, I read on with great interest. [...] The changes in young adults' consumption habits have clearly been influenced by economic forces. But economic forces shape societal attitudes, too. I also don't see much sign that these economic forces are about to reverse. Both these things can be true: The median 25-to-34-year-old has less to spend, and is less interested in spending it on a car.

How Millennials Are Paying a High Price As a Result of the 2008 Financial Crash | Better Markets
[ post-GFC ] 56% of 22-year-olds who just graduated ended up in jobs that did not require a degree, categorizing them as “underemployed.” [...] Today’s younger Americans are taking on more student loan debt than any generation before them, delaying major life milestones such as buying a home and starting a family. This debt is also threatening older generations, who need a large and growing workforce paying into social safety net programs such as Medicare and Social Security. [...] Mr. Rattner gets it right in his column when he writes that “starting behind often means never catching up,” since it’s been proven that graduating in a poor economy can have a long-lasting effect on a person’s career. [...] This lost generation faces an uncertain future and the resulting fallout will negatively impact them, their families and the entire U.S. economy for decades to come. // all the while, banker bashing has become a no-go topic in UK. // &! bit.ly/14R1pzk &! bit.ly/1PsHx7C

The real victims of increased tuition fees? The old
Applications from 18-year-olds are on the rise, including from Britain's poorest families. But part-time and mature students are being deterred. [...] George Osborne talks of his vision of moving to a “higher wage economy”. But while improvement in skills are necessary to lifting productivity, wages and boosting growth, adults are being put off investing in their education. The consequences are particularly deleterious for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, who are more likely to apply to university later and on a part-time basis; the unattractiveness of part-time courses thus imperils social mobility. [...] The fees system for mature and part-time students is putting too many off developing the skills they need for the UK to thrive. [ at least fund a scheme for public-private partnership w companies to chip in ~30% of the cost for their employees ]

Holland: Programm macht aus junge Arbeitslosen Unternehmer - SPIEGEL ONLINE
An der Idee, Unternehmernachwuchs zu fördern, kann auch Wiemer Salverda zunächst nichts Schlechtes finden. Allerdings, so der Arbeitsmarktprofessor von der Universität Amsterdam, seien Programme wie "Jong & Baas" lediglich ein Tropfen auf den heißen Stein - erreichen sie doch nur einen sehr kleinen Kreis an jungen, meist hochqualifizierten Erwachsenen. "Ein Großteil der Jugendlichen, die mit Arbeitslosigkeit kämpfen, haben von solchen Programmen rein gar nichts", so Salverdas vernichtendes Urteil. [...] gerade für alle ohne Hochschulabschluss weiter verschlechtern werde: Von den rund einer Million potentielle Stellen für Geringqualifizierte wird laut van Dijk die Hälfte in den kommenden vier bis fünf Jahren wegfallen. Zum einen wegen der fortschreitenden Technologisierung, zum anderen, weil sich die Jobs derart spezialisieren werden, dass die Firmen sie künftig mit besser ausgebildeten Fachkräften besetzen.

[...] Walter Grünzweig, Professor für amerikanische Literatur und Kultur an der Technischen Universität Dortmund und Träger des Ars-Legendi-Preises für exzellente Lehre, macht für die Entwicklungen auch die Politik verantwortlich.

R is taught specifically because it is a statistical analysis language, which is what a Poli Sci student can expect to be doing a lot of after school. R isn't really "for CS students", it's for statisticians and analytics professionals. Just like chemists often write their own chemical modelling programs, it takes a lot of domain-specific knowledge to craft the correct algorithms for things like this.

BBC News - Foreign languages 'shortfall' for business, CBI says
The UK's education system is failing to produce enough people with foreign-language skills to meet a growing need from business, the CBI has said. Nearly two-thirds of about 300 UK firms surveyed by the business lobby group said they preferred staff with these skills. French, German and Spanish were highly prized but Arabic and Mandarin were growing in importance, it said.

Was können Unternehmen in Krisenzeiten tun, um einen fairen Umgang miteinander zu fördern?

Der faire Umgang wird vor allem gefördert, wenn der finanzielle Unterschied in der Belegschaft nicht zu groß ist. Wenn sie gewaltige Gehaltsgefälle in einem Unternehmen haben, können sie noch so lange erzählen, dass alle Mitarbeiter im gleichen Boot sitzen.

[...]

Karrieren verlaufen stromlinienförmig. Quereinsteiger haben im Gegensatz zu früher kaum noch eine Chance.

Higher education: The college-cost calamity | The Economist
A crisis in higher education has been brewing for years. Universities have been spending like students in a bar who think a Rockefeller will pick up the tab.

Universities hope that vast investments will help them attract the best staff and students, draw in research grants and donations, and ultimately boost their ranking in league tables, drawing in yet more talent and money. They have also increased the proportion of outlays gobbled up by administrators.

To pay for all this, universities have been enrolling more students and jacking up their fees. The average cost of college per student has risen by three times the rate of inflation since 1983. The cost of tuition alone has soared from 23% of median annual earnings in 2001 to 38% in 2010. Such increases plainly cannot continue.

Book: Glenn Reynolds “The Higher Education Bubble”

people start asking whether a degree in religious and women’s studies is worth the $100,000 debt incurred to pay for it.

Jobless generation puts brakes on US - FT.com
Young Americans are well aware of their precarious place in today’s economy, with only 16 per cent in a Rutgers University survey of recent university graduates believing their generation will have greater financial success than the one before. About half of the students surveyed had full-time jobs, and 40 per cent of the college graduates with loans reported putting off big purchases such as cars and homes.

This leaves a firmer economic recovery closely tied to the fortunes of a generation gripped by high levels of debt – and falling incomes from the jobs that require the education the debt buys.

BBC News - Scottish graduates 'told to dumb down CVs'
Two-thirds of the students it surveyed found the Jobcentre unhelpful in finding work.

CAS said many graduates were apparently told by Jobcentre staff that their qualifications actually deterred employers and advised to leave degrees off their CVs altogether to secure "survival jobs".

"At the (Jobcentre) group meetings we were encouraged to leave any degree off the CV to help us find more plentiful unskilled work. Nobody would employ me as a cleaner if I had a degree. I was told to stop looking for graduate work and take a 'survival' job."

"Having been told a degree was the key to a successful and prosperous life, and having worked hard and sacrificed a lot to get one, many have become entrenched instead in a culture of unemployment or low wages and short-term contracts.

"It's heart-rending to read so many accounts of people, once full of hope for the future, who feel their lives are on hold. Some are even questioning whether it was worth the time, money and effort to get degree.

UnCollege is a social movement changing the notion that going to college is the only path to success.

Fifty percent of the world’s population is under thirty: you must differentiate yourself to succeed. With 70.1% of high school graduates going to college, a college degree no longer guarantees success.

BBC News - State 'gains 10 times what it pays for students'
An IPPR think tank and UCU academics union report suggests graduates bring in £180,000 more than those with A-levels over their working life.

An average degree costs the state just under £18,800 per student.

UK invests just 1.7% of public expenditure on tertiary education, compared with 2.3% in France, 2.8% in Germany and the OECD average of 3%.

IPPR think tank and UCU academics union have a bias/agenda. Can not prove impartiality.

I can't really make out the http://www.ippr.org/ - are they pro social democracy, they say they are in their 'about us' page! Left-leaning = views which generally support social change to create a more egalitarian society.

The Benefits Of A College Education | ZeroHedge
... Are what again? As the following graphic from IBD demonstrates, for the first time in history, a majority of jobless workers over 25 have attended some college, and now outnumber those without a job who simply have a high school diploma or less. But at least those in the fomer category have tens of thousands of non-dischargeable debt to show for it.

Education and jobs: Room at the bottom | The Economist
ONE person out of every three who graduated from university in the past six years is in a job requiring only the skills of a school-leaver, up from one in four a decade ago. A 21-year-old graduate is about as likely to be unemployed in the year he leaves full-time education as a 16-year-old school-leaver with only GCSEs. The official figures make depressing reading for young people hoping that the better job higher education is meant to assure them will pay back the sums they have borrowed for college. This is not all a consequence of the recession. The laws of supply and demand are one reason. The number of recent graduates rose by almost half between 2001 and 2011; it is not surprising that some moved downmarket to find work.
=
Does the West need full employment? Can the West manage full employment? Is it possible? Maybe not. Producing more skilled people may not get these people a higher paying job. Instead of minimum wage, why not guaranteed income; working or not.

The Masters as the New Bachelors - NYTimes.com
Call it credential inflation. Once derided as the consolation prize for failing to finish a Ph.D. or just a way to kill time waiting out economic downturns, the master’s is now the fastest-growing degree. The number awarded, about 657,000 in 2009, has more than doubled since the 1980s, and the rate of increase has quickened substantially in the last couple of years, says Debra W. Stewart, president of the Council of Graduate Schools. Nearly 2 in 25 people age 25 and over have a master’s, about the same proportion that had a bachelor’s or higher in 1960.
“Several years ago it became very clear to us that master’s education was moving very rapidly to become the entry degree in many professions,” Dr. Stewart says. The sheen has come, in part, because the degrees are newly specific and utilitarian. These are not your general master’s in policy or administration. Even the M.B.A., observed one business school dean, “is kind of too broad in the current environment.” ...

At the same time, 86 percent of college graduates said that it had been a good investment for them personally. College graduates said they earned an average $20,000 a year more because of their degrees, a figure that closely matches U.S. Census Bureau data, the survey found.

College Loans Weigh Heavier on Graduates - NYTimes.com
interest payments eat disposable income. period.
and defaults and missed payments destroy their credit score.

- 20 something people need more tarmac to fly independently 

“In the coming years, a lot of people will still be paying off their student loans when it’s time for their kids to go to college,” said Mark Kantrowitz, the publisher of FinAid.org and Fastweb.com, who has compiled the estimates of student debt, including federal and private loans.
Two-thirds of bachelor’s degree recipients graduated with debt in 2008, compared with less than half in 1993. Last year, graduates who took out loans left college with an average of $24,000 in debt. Default rates are rising, especially among those who attended for-profit colleges.

Some education policy experts say the mounting debt has broad implications for the current generation of students.

Instead, 89 percent said they wanted more emphasis on “the ability to effectively communicate orally and in writing,” 81 percent asked for better “critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills” and 70 percent were looking for “the ability to innovate and be creative.”
