Universities Should Not Be Asked To Repair Society

Should university education provide therapy for damaged children from deprived homes, a teacher asks as the politically correct though police demand the system be skewed in favour of the fuckwits and under achievers in the name of 'equality.'

Universities Should Not Be Asked To Repair Society

Universities are being asked to “repair the problems of 18 years of upbringing and education” by skewing admissions in favour of poorly performing pupils, according to a leading headmaster. How fucked is British society if universities, the breeding ground of political correctness, multiculturalism, the equal rights industry and so many other plagues that afflict modern society are being asked to sort out the problems they have worked so hard and so long to create.

To pressure uniservity admisions officers into making offers to students with lower grades from state schools is like forcing an engineer to improve the design of an aircraft “after the plane has already crashed”, Phillip Cottam will claim in a speech today.

Mr. Cottam, the chairman of the Society of Headmasters and Headmistresses of Independent Schools, says the number of children from deprived backgrounds failing to fulfil their potential is a “blot” on society. But forcing admissions tutors to repair these problems by discriminating against privately educated teenagers will fail to address key weaknesses in the education system, he adds.

Speaking at the society’s annual conference, he will criticise the decline of the state grammar school system which provided a decent academic education for pupils from the poorest families. His comments come just weeks after ministers insisted universities should admit more students from state schools and deprived backgrounds in return for charging over £6,000 in annual fees.

Cottam, the headmaster of fee-paying Halliford School in Shepperton, Middlesex, says more attention should be given to repairing Britain’s education system. “Trying to force universities to repair, let alone make up for, the problems of 18 years of upbringing and education is certainly not the answer,” he will say. “It is approaching the issue from the wrong end and is like asking an engineer to improve the design of an aircraft after the plane has already crashed.”

He will tell headmasters at the society’s conference in Telford, Shropshire that “discriminating against independent-school pupils using a mechanistic template is unfair to young people educated in private schools. It often feels feels as if opponents of private education believe that the academic success does not reflect any real ability or potential, let alone hard, determined work by the individuals themselves,” he says.

He will also say the modern education system fails to promote competition or push pupils towards excellence.

“An education system that emphasises entitlement at the expense of talent, effort and commitment will not develop the strength of character we need in order to deal with the ups and downs of life,” Mr. Cottam's audience will hear.

Mr Cottam says educators are expected to provide the answer to the social ills of society, with the result that it resembles a branch of psychotherapy”. )

Selection By Stealth Or Simple Common Sense by Xavier Connolly.
The comprehensive education system has become one of the sacred cows of the "progressive left" in spite of its very obvious failure. The old Grammar School system only segregated on grounds of intelligence whereas the system now with its postcode lottery and the growth of private schools for the rich segregates on grounds of parental wealth, social class and geogrphic location. Intelligence does not enter the equation. So the selective way was more egalitarian, what are the leftie whiners on about.

Wall Street snaps six-day run; Apple to split stock

By Chuck Mikolajczak NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks dipped on Wednesday to snap a six-session winning streak as gains in Boeing and Gilead were offset by slides in AT&T and the wider biotech sector. AT&T Inc fell 3.8 percent to $34.92 a day after the Dow component reported earnings that beat expectations, offset by weak service revenue growth. Verizon Communications shed 1 percent to $47.43 while the S&P telecom sector index dropped 2.2 percent, easily making it the session's worst-performing sector. Biotech shares pulled the Nasdaq lower.

Vermont lawmakers send GMO food-labeling law to governor
A law that would make Vermont the first U.S. state to enact mandatory labeling of foods made with genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, received final approval from state lawmakers on Wednesday and now heads to the governor's desk. The Vermont House of Representative passed the bill 114-30. Last week, the Vermont Senate, by a vote of 28-2, approved the measure, which requires foods containing GMOs sold at retail outlets to be labeled as having been produced or partially produced with "genetic engineering." "Vermont's leading the nation on this, giving consumers basic information about the food that they are eating," said Falko Schilling, a spokesman for the Vermont Public Interest Research Group, which backed the bill. The Vermont bill also makes it illegal to describe any food product containing GMOs as "natural" or "all natural." Unlike bills passed last year in Maine and Connecticut, which require other states to pass GMO labeling laws before they can be enacted, Vermont's contains no such trigger clause.

Oregon investigates mysterious honeybee deaths along state highway
By Shelby Sebens PORTLAND, Oregon (Reuters) - Oregon agriculture authorities are investigating the mysterious deaths of potentially thousands of honeybees along a highway, the second die-off of bees in the state in less than a year. Officials said on Wednesday that they did not reach the site along highway 99 in Sherwood, a small city southwest of Portland, in time to document the precise number of bees. "From what I've learned, when bees swarm, there can be anywhere from one to 10,000 in a swarm, so if that indeed was a case of a swarm of bees in the area, it could be in that range," said Oregon Department of Agriculture spokesman Bruce Pokarney.

The number of heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems blamed on marijuana increased from five events in 2006 to 11 events in 2010. "It is true that we don't have a lot of cases, but it is important to keep in mind that cannabis use may be harmful," Emilie Jouanjus told Reuters Health. Jouanjus is the study's lead author from Universite Toulouse III - Paul Sabatier in Toulouse, France.
