The landmark #SacharCommittee report that collected & analysed data on the social,economic & educational status of Muslims in India is now available in our resource section. Specifically,it tried to gauge if & why Muslims are under-represented in govt departments & other spheres.
Here are some of its findings. ruralindiaonline.org/resources/soci…
The 2001 Census showed that #literacy rates were low among Muslims, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
The perception that religious conservatism among Muslims is a major factor for not accessing #education is incorrect. As with many Indians, the main reason for ‘educational backwardness’ of Muslims is abject poverty, which forces many children to drop out of school.

For all of us grappling with what's happening in UK HE – gasping to keep our heads above water & struggling to understand all the actors & forces at work – I so so recommend @amcgettigan's "The Great University Gamble: Money, markets & the future of HE" plutobooks.com/9780745332932/… 1/
”The Great University Gamble” is centred around privatisation of HE — the “plan & the gamble” — as McGettigan frames it — & published in 2013. It covers creation of HE market; deregulation & deprofessionalization; university financing (incl bonds); private equity; governance 2/ Screenshot of contents page of book
Re-reading it post #USSstrike, I am struck by how McGettigan identifies the cleavage (evident from at least 2010 and possibly well before) btw #UUK/mission groups & the interests of academics, students, & public in general 3/

On the #Gauland-interview: It's the role of the press to ask difficult questions (which #BerlinDirekt does with other candidates as well).

It is not the fault of the #ZDF when the #AfD still has NOT determined clear (or any) policies on #pensions & other social issues!
@Futureworldxxl @WirtschaftDE @frazionetoskana @tbgstephen @crypt_ghost @ThomasGBauer @Thomas190163 @m_aus_s @Patriotenfrank @webaxvita @ReneTruninger @jaegermeisterl @SamanthaMller16 @sabine_m_b 2. As I stated before: The #AfD can not win on the medium or long term with just #MerkelMussWeg & #RefugeesOut. Security and Law & Order (with anti-#EU) may be the main driver of growth, but the AfD needs to find answers to other issues as well! It had 5 years to do so!

It is also clear to me that the #AfD tries to avoid these topics. Why? Because #Gauland, #VonStorch & Co know that it could divide the #AfD - Von Storch & #Meuthen sound like a right #FDP (on social issues): This will not please blue collar voters & many protest voters!

(2/16) Vimla Devi from Murhu Jharkhand explains how she has been running pillar to post to find out about her pensions. She last received them in Sept. 2017.

(3/16) A team from @rozi_roti, when investigating the issue, find out that the money is being sent to an Airtel payment account that Vimla knew nothing about. Here is proof of the same.

We at @USSbriefs HQ have spent lots of weekends & evenings getting our first briefs ready for OpenUPP. Our efforts to Open Up the #USS Joint Expert Panel start for real today, as we challenge the epistemic landscape of #USS #pensions dispute ussbriefs.com/openupp2018/ #USSstrike 1/ screen shot of press release linked to in tweetscreen shot of press release linked to in tweet
Our first #OpenUPP2018 brief is 'Opening up the USS Joint Expert Panel', by me. I explain why we at @USSbriefs are so committed to Opening Up the #JEP, & provide thumbnail reflections on the 7 people who make up that closed panel medium.com/ussbriefs/open… 2/
Our second #OpenUPP2018 brief is an 'Open Letter from Academics for Pensions Justice' (@ForPension) which demands that #USS provides full disclosure of data, assumptions & the modelling approach underpinning the 2017 valuation to JEP medium.com/ussbriefs/open… #USSbriefs26 3/

1) Anem a obrir un FIL sobre un tema estelar. Les pensions. Els partits unionistes utilitzen com a argument de campanya que perillarien les pensions en una Catalunya independent. El gran problema és que Espanya segurament no podrà pagar les pensions entre 2018 i 2019.
2) Preciso, pagar pagarà. El problema com sempre és quant pagarà. I no podrà garantir les prestacions actuals. Haurà de retallar. Encara que Catalunya continuï dins del sistema espanyol. Recordem uns pocs conceptes bàsics del funcionament del sistema de pensions.
3) El sistema de pensions actuals és de repartiment. Els treballadors actuals paguen les pensions actuals. La salut del sistema depèn, llavors, dels següents paràmetres: a) Quants treballadors contribueixen per cada pensionista; b) Quin és el salari mig dels treballadors;
