The connections between education and health are many, and operate both directly and through the intervening variables of economic growth and gender equity. Personal and household (family) income rises with education level. In developed countries, higher education is associated with healthier living conditions (e.g. better housing, exposure to less environmental pollution) and healthier lifestyles [...]

David Cameron's proclamation that the Tories will be "brazenly elitist" about the calibre of candidates entering the teaching profession betrays the fact that he doesn't know anything about teaching. As a teacher in various comprehensives for the past 20 years, I have seen many good teachers, and some, it's true, fit the stereotype that Cameron wants to impose: graduates with good degrees from so-called "good universities".

     We are, as it seems, considering not only how a city, but also a luxurious city, comes into being... Let’s look at a feverish city… This healthy one isn’t adequate any more, but must already be gorged with a bulky mass of things. Republic Book II, 372e-373b.

  1. Curriculum in the Public Schools: Can Compromise Be Reached? by Charles L. Glenn
    The author argues that the public schools ought not teach a value system and a world view contrary to the beliefs and values of the children's parents.
  2. Falling Behind: An Interview with Jonathan Kozol by Jonathan Kozol
    There is a general sense that society no longer intends to bring black and Hispanic children into the mainstream of society. The public schools today are every bit as segregated as they were in 1964, in the days of Martin Luther King.
  3. Making Schools Work For The Rich And The Poor by Ronald J. Sider
    The author argues for large expenditures in public education to remedy the ills of inner-city school. Money should be spent to experiment both with school vouchers and with other reforms.
  4. The Hopeful Years: Children of the South Bronx by Jonathan Kozol
  5. The more time the author spends with inner-city children, the less credible and less legitimate large distinctions between them and other children seem.

     The seven secrets behind great teaching

   The G8, Africa, and Global Health by Ronald Labonte, Ted Schrecker, David Sanders y Wilma Meeus

      For most of the past century, the spread of mysterious, frightening diseases is something that has occurred mostly in poorer parts of the planet. Now that it is identified as primarily a ‘Third World’, especially African, condition, AIDS has briefly managed to make it to the highest level of political agendas, including the UN Security Council. But all in all, the G8 countries under scrutiny in this book have for decades lived as though immune to at least two of the biblical scourges – famine and pestilence.
Phenomenology as a Research Method, by Madeleine Rothe
   Writing as research
     Rothe is a landscape architect. This essay is a revised version of chapter 4 of her master’s thesis, which examines phenomenologically the process of becoming at home for 12 residents of the Nyland cohousing community outside of Denver, Colorado. As illustrated in the figure below, Rothe portrays this process as a series of seven stages and suggests that purchasing the land for development (after stage 3) and moving into the community (after stage 5) provide important external “spurs” for motivating the process onward. A thorough discussion of this becoming-at-home process is provided in Rothe, 2000. © Madeleine Rothe, 2001, 2003.

   Bacon makes, by a sort of exhaustive analysis, a ground-plan of all subjects of study, as an intellectual map, helping the right inquirer in his search for the right path. The right path is that by which he has the best chance of adding to the stock of knowledge in the world something worth labouring for; and the true worth is in labour for "the glory of the Creator and the relief of man's estate."
