Under-Age Sexting; Mandatory iPads; Teaching Math; Commonwealth Kisses: It’s Required Readings!

Under-age British teenagers are warned about the legal implications of texting explicit images to each other.


A school is accused of fostering bullying and creating a two-tier system by asking parents to buy iPads for their children to use in classes.


The ways in which math is taught in the USA are brought into question.


And finally, moving away from education, the Commonwealth Games opened last night in my home city of Glasgow. Actor John Barrowman’s gay kiss, which formed part of one of the acts, has made the news today as we are reminded that homosexuality is still illegal in 42 out of the 53 Commonwealth countries.
