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 societys 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 Britains 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 societys 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.

Intelligence does not enter the equation. So the selective way was more egalitarian, what are the leftie whiners on about.

Mayor in standoff with chemical firms in Israel's Haifa

The mayor of Haifa, Israel's third largest city, Monday ordered municipal rubbish trucks to block access to a refinery and four petrochemical plants following a scare over high cancer rates. The standoff began Sunday when Mayor Yona Yahav ordered the revocation of the five firms' business licences after warnings linking high cancer rates in the area to air pollution. The issue, focusing on a fierce debate over air pollution in the northern port, will come before a Haifa court on Tuesday. "These trucks were sent once again on Monday morning to block access to four petrochemical plants and a refinery," Tzahi Terrano, a spokesman for Haifa city council, told AFP.

Novartis solid tumor 'CAR T cell' still holds promise: researcher

A new type of immuno-oncology treatment from Novartis AG proved safe in a tiny study of three types of solid tumors, but the trial included too few patients and used too small a dose of the experimental product to prove effectiveness, according to data presented at a cancer meeting on Sunday. The so-called CAR T cell is among a wave of new cancer treatments created by removing T cells, powerful immune system cells, from a patient's body and attaching an antibody fragment that enables them to recognize and target specific proteins on cancer cells. In clinical trials by Novartis and other drugmakers, CAR T cells have proven highly effective and relatively safe against blood cancers, such as leukemias and lymphomas. The new Novartis-sponsored study, conducted by scientists at the University of Pennsylvania and presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, enrolled six patients who had failed to benefit from standard treatments for ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer or mesothelioma (a cancer in the protective lining covering many of the body's internal organs).
