I’ve been storing away a few different pieces in my revue ‘my items’ receptacle, wondering when to use them. In the immortal words of Stephen Morrisey et al, How Soon is Now
Here’s all the stuff I’ve been saving for a rainy revue day:
Possible plans for ‘May
’ schools, Sir Anthony Seldon in The Telegraph
. A case against grammars.
Arguments from Charles Bonas for ignoring league tables
, also The Telegraph
. I’m no advocate for League Tables, but it is not beneath me to use them to my school’s advantage - like we all do - when my school fares well.
Reduce, reuse, recycle - the emergence of trash/waste cafes
. An interesting indictment on what we currently waste.
Why we should talk to strangers
in The Guardian
. My own children think this is a ‘north of Birmingham’ behaviour (as exemplified by their mother, who makes friends returning a supermarket trolley to its bay).
Why first-gen university students need mentors
A frivolous piece which had been doing the rounds within my peer group, with some resonance for those of my vintage
(or perhaps those a little younger) … pitted against a more worthy piece
along some similar lines.
