First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to

I am so glad you finally came out and said it: The #Syria Mess is #Obama’s fault as “one man” who implemented it. And “One Woman’s” fault who was “his” architect in “his” #StateDepartment: @HillaryClinton. Bravo 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

This is such an important area and I'm glad that attention is being paid to #PupilExits.

That said, the EPI's definition of unexplained exit (UE) and the decision to rank LAs and trusts is, I think, flawed. (Thread)

#schools #Education #children
UE is itself a very misleading term. It suggests that some explanation has been sought and found lacking, but what it actually refers to is a move that doesn't fit into a category that the researchers can measure based on other data... #PupilExits address is an objective datum available from centralised records, so it constitutes an explanation. A parent not liking the new behaviour policy and taking Jonny to the school down the road is "unexplained" because this explanation can't be coded the same way. #PupilExits

Thread: Blatant #ClimateDenial has lost. The new conflict is whether #ClimateChange is a crisis requiring urgent social and #economic transformation, or something we can adapt to incrementally while carrying on with business as usual. 1/40
2/ A recent opinion piece by Bjorn Lomborg in the @globeandmail is representative of the 'business as usual argument'. Let's deconstruct it to see how this gets passed off as the pragmatic point of view, and why it's false.…
3/ The basic tactic is this: provide a few common-sense truths to gain the air of pragmatism and then feed us the story we're desperate to hear: that everything will be fine, that growth will outpace #ClimateDamages and life can carry on as usual.

Do you know that many recent graduates with exceptional grades may still struggle to obtain entry-level jobs because of a lack of portfolios full of the right skill sets and lack marketable abilities?

Recently, I started my mentorship program and 90% of the participants have clear concerns about how to map out a successful career from their degrees. In other cases, they have questions on how to get successful careers out of their current jobs...

#CareerTalkWithDrAddy they don’t feel fulfilled or don’t think they are making a good living. 

During my visit to Toronto in August, I sat with an old friend from my University of Saskatchewan days who literarily burst into tears while explaining the fears of her degrees not being enough...

Thread: Q's Army

Do you think #QsArmy is just a bunch of people sitting at the computer doing nothing?

Do you think #Anons are stealing valor?

Do you think #DigitalSoldiers are wasting their time, not doing anything to help?

1 in every 5 of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria.

The truth: lack of proper funding is killing our education system.

Did you even know?

The capital budget for 43 federal universities is just N6.11bn.

But @NGRSenate is to buy N5.5bn SUVs.
Overall, only 7% of the budget is allocated to the education sector in 2019, culminating in a total of N634.56bn.

#EvenItUp #Education #Inequality
Despite the allocation to the education sector being relatively low, only 9% of the total allocation N58.69bn will be spent on capital expenditure.

How much has been spent so far since 2014?

The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society"… "the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest…

[#thread] En 2005, deux inspecteurs de l'Éducation Nationale se rendent dans une école #SteinerWaldorf (école privée hors-contrat) de niveau CE1-CE2 (13 élèves) dans le Gard. Voici un résumé du rapport👇 #Waldorf100 #Steiner #education #anthroposophie #rudolfSteiner
« Nous assistons à une leçon de langage autour d’un "secret". La parole des enfants est prise en compte mais dans une absence totale d’esprit critique, tout se situe dans l’énonciation de propos, bien loin du débat démocratique. Les enfants ont une bonne expression verbale... »👇
«... Aucun enfant n’est capable de lire, un seul semble pouvoir déchiffrer mais nous fait la confidence que cet apprentissage se réalise à la maison ou a commencé au sein d’une école publique (…)» 👇

Teaching when autistic - a thread that may be useful. If you're into #education or #autism please share so I can continue to get people understanding it. Buckle up, it's thread time again folks. /1
Teaching in some ways doesn't fit well with stereotypical ideas of #autism. It's essentially a social activity, it involves dealing with people a lot, there are huge sensory issues and so forth. But I think it actually fits rather well. /2
There are, for a start, quite a lot of #autistic teachers. Enough, perhaps, for its own hashtag. This would suggest *something* about the profession works for the #neurodivergent. /3

Yesterday my @UWSoHE #matcult #childhood seminar visited @HLATC_Textiles to study objects related to #histchild and we connected objects to #childrensrights #humanrights as discussed through #UNCRC @jhcy @shcy Here are a few highlights...
We looked at and compared this lovely, warm Swedish cap with this highly embellished Pakistani hat, both 20thC, and thought about children’s #rights to safety, protection and care #article19 #UNCRC
We examined two amazing samplers, one made by a 10yr old girl in Wisconsin in 1832 and the other a colorful 1898 #darning #sampler, likely initialed by 10 different students, and considered changing ideas about children’s rights to an #education and #community #article28 #UNCRC

#PaidPidis are trolling @nsitharaman for her statement on #OlaUber being responsible for #autosectorslowdown

That was just 1 reason she gave, not the only one

As mother is 2 #Millennials, I agree with her - consumer tastes are changing

Today #Millennials prefer to take an AC #OlaUber instead of-

- buying car

- paying EMIs

- legalities- insurances, papers, etc

- buying parking space (which in Mumbai is costlier than price of car)

- finding parking space in busy streets or paying steep parking charges
Many #Millennials aren’t in love with the idea of #buyingHouse either

Today, the concept of #LifelongJob has gone out of the window & people are on the #move in the #job market

Hence #renting & changing homes make more sense than investing in a house, a very #illiquid asset

It’s clear #education space is in dire need of a #virtuousinsurgency like the gov benefits from right now. The time wasting, snowflake treating daily drama, hula hoop inefficiencies teachers deal w/ from school districts makes me want to scream. Needs total rework. @DonWettrick
Had dinner with a new teacher last night, there’s not enough space to list the shocking amount of BS she’s asked to swallow every day.

Don’t @ me about not pushing back against policies + norms on behalf of kids. The kids suffer more bc teachers don’t collectively push back.
Open invite for #teachers to apply for @GovCityHQ to the November cohort. I’ll leave 5-10 seats open for those of you who want to meet the #virtuousinsurgency and learn how to build your own movement like they have.

Today was my son’s #FirstDayOfSchool Instead of the public school down the street I drove him 40 minutes to a private school for children with disabilities. With a ratio of 30:2 (30 four year olds!) with NO supports public education is out of the question. #CutsHurtKids
The past week has been hard. On Thursday I spoke with the public school and told them that no, my son would not be attending the school with the rest of his community. Today I drove in the opposite direction of the children that would have been in my sons class
I do not feel he could be safely supported with only 2 adults for the entire class. He has ASD, PICA, is non-verbal, is not toilet trained and a flight risk. There are two other high needs kids in his class, 27 other NT kids and no EA. #CutsHurtKids

Decolonizing your syllabus is different than including some Indigenous writers in the schedule. A thread.
#decolonization #TRC #decolonzingyoursyllabus #education
Inclusion is a form of diversification but it can also be violent. Inviting voices into spaces not built for them can often work against the well-intentioned goals of inclusion. This is what is meant by tokenism where inclusion = sufficient action, but no structures change.
Also, colonialism is about settler/colonials gaining access to Indigenous land, knowledge, cultuare, etc, & mere inclusion of Indigenous writers, obtaining and "integrating" ideas to enrich settler education can be a form of colonialism. Probably not your goal! So what to do?

A better alternative to "progress studies"

While I appreciate the importance of understanding & facilitating progress, I was underwhelmed by this proposal for a new scientific discipline.

I'd like to propose a better alternative....

#innovation #science #education

A while back, I put together a sampling of big challenges we face & a way to measure magnitude.…

But BIG problems demand big innovative solutions.

Unfortunately, the capabilities we need are scattered across disciplines & institutions.

What I propose is a global, cross-disciplinary strikeforce for each problem we face.

This model would truly meld purpose, education & action into a cohesive whole.

It would eliminate the need for yet another scientific discipline, while truly accelerating human progress.

@baba_Omoloro how about a weekend meet-up on schooling abroad and scholarship opportunities?
It's simple:
*30 participants
*Someone here can get us the venue
*Participants can provide refreshments themselves
*Cost of @boltapp_ng of Peter on me
*Video call with @MomentsWithBren
The space should be for FREE.
So we can all learn and achieve our desire.

Show interest in the comment section and @DAdesalu will aggregate interested individuals and partners.

@callmebukunmi sir, hope you know you are working with @DAdesalu on this aggregation.

Typical note from my students in July.

1 - My #OSAP got cut
2 - Parents can't help
3 - I work 2 jobs, not enough $
4 - I have to drop out
5 - I'm scared
6 - Can you help me?

This is on you @fordnation @OntarioPCParty

@csaguelph @CSAHS_UoG @uofg @CFSFCEE #education
Every Goddamn time I go to campus this summer for office hours, I listen to students that have had their academic plans and future destroyed by @fordnation and the @OntarioPCParty

They've absolutely no shot now because equity of opportunity has been ripped away.
Now, do you know what crushes my soul first as a father teacher? The types of jobs they are considering to pay for school.

Stripper, hooker, massage parlour - THAT'S NOT HOW YOU F-CKING PAY FOR SCHOOL.

@fordnation - What would you have me tell these kids? @LWaler thoughts?

#Brexit ALREADY costs UK £1bn pw as we Hit Holidays! @GoldmanSachs put that lower at £600m. but I'm looking at 2+% less GDP (than would have been); more Govt Debt (+interest); the growing impact of #Brexodus on jobs/taxtake; £devaln.&inflation creep, reducing Property values.1/20
@GoldmanSachs Am puzzled & mortified? that UK's so-called Major Political Parties @Conservatives @UKLabour seem umbilically disconnected? from the financial IMPACT of their recent (let's say) 'accidental collusions' and Brexit-Birth-Giving! Why the co-incidental & costly numeracy lapse? 2/20
@GoldmanSachs @Conservatives @UKLabour Assuming that (eg) @bankofengland @hmtreasury @ICAEW @The_IoD @cbicarolyn @FrancesOGrady are aware of UK's #Brexit financial haemorrhage? eg Govt Debt, Jobs/Tax, Businesses (all sizes), Individuals - there may be varying estimates? but agreement that a HUGE hit is ongoing! 3/20
