Secondary school places for all 'undeliverable', councils warn - BBC News
[ planning taken out of hands of councils ] [ first the teachers strike (2014), then the doctors strike (2015/2016) - bit.ly/1T3QTfc ] The legal duty of councils in England to ensure that every child has a school place could soon become undeliverable, local authorities have warned. With a population bulge about to hit secondary schools, councils want powers to open new maintained schools and to compel academies to expand. Thousands of children are due to hear on Tuesday which secondary school they will attend from September. However the government says the warning amounts to "scaremongering". The population bulge which has put primary schools under pressure will start hitting secondary schools this year, according to official figures. Last year councils had to provide 2,740,000 secondary school places, but this will rise to 3,287,000 by 2024, the figures predict.

Should Ofsted get a US boss? - BBC News
In particular, they are considering candidates who have been involved in the charter school movement, state-funded independent schools, with a similar ideological DNA to academies and free schools in England. The big impact of charter schools has been in the most deprived urban areas, credited with re-energising schools that had been in a state of chronic decline. It's a claim rejected by their opponents, particularly in US teachers' unions, who say that the successful glitz and PR around charter schools is not backed up by any significant long-term advantage. Some charter schools do well, some do badly... like any other type of school, they argue. The current mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, has been accused by charter school groups of putting up "roadblocks" to their expansion. [...] [ PISA & a very mixed picture in USA ... and no co-operation, collaboration and trust. ]

Book Excerpt: Understanding the New Jim Crow | BillMoyers.com
The following is an excerpt from Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. - "Today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African-Americans. Once you’re labeled a felon, the old forms of discrimination— employment discrimination, housing discrimination, denial of the right to vote, denial of educational opportunity, denial of food stamps and other public benefits and exclusion from jury service — are suddenly legal. ...We have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it." - Michelle Alexander
