Inglaterra


Do we value freedom of speech in Britain?

Government policy is credited for the capital’s educational turnaround – but others say it is the result of more children from aspirational ethnic minority families at its schools

The use of so-called ‘smart drugs’, bought on the internet, to boost mental performance is rife in British universities. So can we all benefit from ‘having an edge’, or is it just a form of cheating that should be banned?

Every week, thousands of children rely on Kids Company for their main meal of the day. They come to be fed, to learn how to cook, and to find a safe place to be a child.

… para situações que revelam o fracasso de reformas que alguns procuram emular, a começar pelos ministros que andaram lá por fora e acharam o máximo à escola lá das vizinhanças do campus.

The government’s flagship free schools programme has been dealt a blow with the announcement that a third school is to close after a damning Ofsted report found that leadership, teaching, pupil behaviour and achievement were all “inadequate”, the lowest possible rating.

Durham Free School, which has a Christian ethos and opened in September 2013, has had its funding agreement terminated after being put in special measures by the schools watchdog, Ofsted, after an inspection in November.

O problema adicional é que por cá não existye um organismo como o Ofsted, com poderes efectivos para alguma coisa e não apenas para inspecções a arquivar.

Alguém está a ver o poder político a mandar fechar uma escola privada, sem que os queirozes se arrepelassem todos e viessem para a rua armados em charlies assassinados,, mártires da liberdade na Educação?
