Поступило предложение ввести в чикагских школах расписание на восемь уроков в день. Развернулась общественная дискуссия.

Мнение 1: "I have no problem with it, because you can never have too much education," said Antoinette Johnson, a parent of two kids at Penn Elementary in North Lawndale. "It would benefit most of these kids."

Мнение 2: "To put an uncertified person in front of students should not be called education, that is called baby-sitting," Chicago Teachers Union President Marilyn Stewart charged. Her opponent in the union's upcoming runoff election agreed. "What struggling elementary students need is . . . arts, music," Karen Lewis said. "Placing them in front of a computer without certified, caring professional teachers is like turning the TV on."

lasvegassun.com -- Nevada doesn’t allow out-of-state barbers to transfer their licenses here, a procedure known as reciprocity.

Меня отдельно восхищает это reciprocity. Некоторые согласны отказаться от обязательности разрешения FDA для лекарств, продающихся в Европе, но только если Европа тоже откажется.

NYT -- Some American school districts have turned increasingly to overseas recruiting to find teachers willing to work in their hard-to-staff schools, according to a new report by a national teachers union: http://www.aft.org/pubs-reports/intl/Teacher_Migration.pdf

The union published the report in the hope it would lead to heightened regulation, it said. The report cited the prosecution of several recruiting companies and three Texas school administrators on charges related to smuggling immigrants and visa fraud and other cases as examples of the dangers that can accompany the foreign recruiting of teachers.

The Dangers
  • Alien Smuggling and Visa Fraud
  • Indentured Servitude
  • Indefinite At-Will Status
  • Teacher as Temp
  • Unequal Benefits
  • Culture Shock
  • Communication Barriers
  • Company Housing
Бонус для [livejournal.com profile] tandem_bike. Comparison to health sector: it should be recalled that nurse migration to the U.S. began as a small and seemingly innocuous trend in the 1950s. In 2002, one in three nurses hired in the U.S. was foreign educated. Such trends in the health sector may foretell what is to come in education without thoughtful intervention. Now is the time to consider how the system of international teacher migration should be regulated to ensure fairness and quality education worldwide.

NEW YORK – Hundreds of New York City public school teachers accused of offenses ranging from insubordination to sexual misconduct are being paid their full salaries to sit around all day playing Scrabble, surfing the Internet or just staring at the wall, if that's what they want to do.

Как же все-таки построить никому не нужный самый высокий в Америке удивительный небоскреб в виде шурупа? Ведь его все, в связи с известными событиями, отказались финансировать (слава богу).

Оказывается, надо добиться, чтобы в него инвестировали профсоюзные пенсионные фонды, а строители были поголовно членами профсоюза. В этом случае проект оказывается инвестиционно привлекательнее.

Только готовить никто не умеет. More than 200 Pace bus drivers and mechanics based in the suburban transit agency's northwest garage walked off the job early today, cutting service to nearly 22,000 riders.



Каждый раз удивляюсь, когда в подобных случаях начинают высказываться "за" или "против" забастовок, сами не являясь водителями автобуса. Я, например, точки зрения на забастовки не имею, только на два закона, из которых один запрещает немедленно уволить этих, а другой -- немедленно нанять других по гостевой программе из братской Мексики.

Аналогично при обсуждении процесса Ро против Вейда (который исключительно о сравнительных полномочиях Вашингтона и штатов) почему-то всегда кто-нибудь предложит обсудить заодно и аборты.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) -- Film and television writers went on strike on Monday, after last-minute talks aimed at averting the Writers Guild of America's first walkout in almost two decades collapsed.

The strike is expected to shut down many sitcoms.
