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.

Services for LGBT young people will just disappear | Kirstie Brewer | Society | The Guardian
Cuts to council youth budgets are putting vital specialist provision for vulnerable youngsters in jeopardy [...] “Youth provision has always been the Cinderella service and LGBT youth provision is its poor relation,” [...] Overall, youth services directly provided by councils in England have been cut by 36% since 2011 – from £877m to £561m total expenditure, according to figures provided by Kate Green, shadow minister for women and equalities. “Councils are facing impossible decisions about youth services as the government slashes their revenue support grants by over 50%, regardless of the cost to individuals and communities,” //&!

Doctors, teachers, the police – public servants are demoralised | Will Hutton | Comment is free | The Guardian
To toil in the present-day NHS is thankless. [...] Whatever its merits, a workforce whose morale is already low sees it as yet more evidence that professionals’ views don’t count. Morale takes a further downward lurch. [...] Thus by 2020, the government will have imposed an unprecedented 10-year freeze in real pay across the public sector, shrunk its numbers by more than 1.5 million and offered as little upward career progression to public employees as it possibly can. A new industry of private contractors feeding off contracted-out public work will have been invented, offering even worse pay and conditions than the public sector itself. To raise taxes that might alleviate the crisis is ideologically prohibited. [...] Employees are voting with their feet. Between November 2013 and November 2014, 49,120 teachers quit – the highest rate on record. Nearly four in 10 newly qualified teachers leave after their first year. [...] [ Met warned less police officers on street ]

Iain Duncan Smith calls people without a disability "normal"
The art of cruelty: why the Conservative attack on disabled people harms us all. No sick person responds to their diagnosis by thinking, “I can scam taxpayers for £73 a week!” [...] Not only is in-work poverty a larger drain on the benefits system than the unemployed, but most of the things that help disabled people get back to work have been cut. [...] They got away with this by launching an all-out propaganda assault that portrays disabled and workless people as “scroungers”, “sponging” off the state, when presumably they should be grateful not to be left on a hillside to die as would have been done in the good old days. [...] This is Tory Britain. [...] The welfare state is being dismantled and rebuilt as a machine to manage and discipline the workforce into accepting precarious labour, low pay and no social safety net. [...] this way the Tories can persuade the most vulnerable in society to accept their fate and the rest of us to believe that they deserve it. [...] moral hazard

BBC One - Panorama, Tough Justice in Britain - Texas Style
As the UK's imprisonment rate remains the highest in western Europe, Panorama joins Michael Gove - the man in charge of British prisons - on a fact-finding mission in Texas. 'Hang 'em high' Texas is not the first place you might look for lessons in criminal justice - they execute more people and lock up more offenders than anywhere else in America. But now this conservative state is the unlikely centre of a rehabilitation-led revolution in prison reform that's sweeping through the US. Crime is down, prisoner numbers have fallen and, on top of this, they have cut costs. Are there valuable lessons to be learned here, and are UK politicians really ready to dole out some Texan justice?
