Gove’s Gone; Islamic Fundamentalism; Sexual Assault During Field Work; Reporting College Rape: It’s Required Readings!

Welcome to Thursday’s collection of Required Readings!

 

I’ve posted about Michael Gove, the English Secretary of State for Education, before. I make no secret of the fact that I despise everything about his attitude towards teachers and education in general. Well, this week teachers across England woke to the wonderful news that Gove has been “reshuffled” to a different (and less prestigious) Cabinet position. I prefer the word “sacked”, myself. With Gove out of the way, perhaps English education can become an effective and progressive system once again.

 

Evidence continues to grow regarding an alleged systematic infiltration of several Birmingham schools by hard-line Islamic fundamentalists.

 

A recent survey finds that 64% of young field researchers have been sexually harassed while working in remote locations.

 

In a sadly predictable turn of events, a young woman’s decision to report her rape at a New York college led to pain, shame and accusation.

Alasdair

Alasdair is a high school English teacher in Scotland. He's a passionate skeptic and science fan, which is why he runs a discussion club for young skeptics in his school. He loves space and astronomy more than pretty much anything and is studying for a physics degree in his spare time in order to become qualified to teach science.

He lives with a cat made of distilled hatred and spikes.
