Human Contact Is Now a Luxury Good - The New York Times
All of this has led to a curious new reality: Human contact is becoming a luxury good.

As more screens appear in the lives of the poor, screens are disappearing from the lives of the rich. The richer you are, the more you spend to be offscreen.


The wealthy can afford to opt out of having their data and their attention sold as a product. The poor and middle class don’t have the same kind of resources to make that happen.

Why are my wife and I quitting teaching? Brutal cuts, bad policies and stressed kids | Peter Foggo | Opinion | The Guardian
For us the final straw was the proposed creation of a new generation of grammar schools, and with them the reintroduction of selection in education. We could not accept being a part of a system that condemns as failures the majority of children at the age of 11. A system where children are encouraged to label themselves as failures is a broken system.

In the end there are two visions of the future, and of the future of education, currently vying for control. One is of a constant struggle, where competition is seen as the main driving force. The other is of a world based on cooperation, nurture and encouragement, where collaboration is considered the key to success. I know which I prefer.

The hope of becoming a small part of a system that developed self-confident, questioning and caring individuals was what motivated me to enter and to stay in teaching for the last 26 years. The vision of a world that sees every man for himself, fighting in the gutter over the last crust of bread, is what has driven me out.

The reward for good teaching in universities? We can push learners deeper into debt | Higher Education Network | The Guardian
"Of course I want my students to find job security after university and thrive in their careers. But their subsequent employment status is not a measure of my success as a teacher. It is a measure of many things, including their luck in negotiating an economy that often excludes people like them. Personally, I measure my success as a teacher by whether my students develop the capacity to learn, think and act independently, without my guidance. But these qualities are not the metrics of the Tef.

Instead, we will send our graduates out so laden with debt that they need to cling to the first job they can find – and call ourselves successful educators. We will compete like starved dogs over the reward of being able to raise fees, and proudly put our Tef status on promotional materials, ensuring a steady supply of students willing to pay inflated fees.

The Tef isn’t concerned with the art and practice of teaching. It does not set out to capture and promote those practices that inform, enlighten and inspire. It is a crowbar with which to prise apart universities, communities and families."

The challengers (and challenges) in higher education market reform - Wonkhe
But the new Conservative government is keen to launch on paths of further transformation, impatient at having been held in check for five-years by the Liberal Democrats. Thus we have Success as a Knowledge Economy: Teaching Excellence, Social Mobility and Student Choice an impatient but confusing document which bristles with resentment towards an established university sector apparently not biddable enough to develop the kind of flexible, diverse provision it wants to see (and here we mean accelerated two-year degrees and degree apprenticeships, not part-time options, of course).

An Evening with Thomas Docherty, but a Lifetime with the Eichmann Academics | Academic Irregularities
"Performance management is a process of constant surveillance, reporting, evidencing and self-justification unfolding amidst the pervasive accusation that the individual is undeserving of the status of professor. But there is a process, and it will be observed"
