Disaster-resilient school communities urged - thenews.com.pk - 0 views

  •  
    Considering the vulnerability of children and the role schools can play in case of any natural or human induced disaster, the speakers of a seminar have stressed for creating disaster-resilient school communities that are better trained and equipped for dealing with any such emergency situation.
     
    They demanded the government to declare May 16 as National School Safety Day and define standard operating procedures (SOPs) for schools which could be followed in case of any disaster.

Study highlights bullying in schools | The Australian - 0 views

  • ALMOST three quarters of year 9 schoolboys admit to "covert bullying", according to a world-first Australian study.

    The survey of almost 800 Victorian students found 72 per cent of year 9 boys and 65 per cent of year 9 girls had engaged in covert bullying, such as spreading rumours or excluding other children.

    Lead researcher, Professor Sheryl Hemphill, said it was surprising to find more boys than girls engaging in this type of bullying.

    "Covert bullying was always thought to be predominantly done by girls, but our figures show for the first time that boys are actively engaging in this behaviour," she said.

BBC News - England's schools should learn from Japan, says Twigg - 0 views

  • He continues: "Education in England has had years of reform to structures, exams and accountability measures. But the style of classroom teaching has changed little since Victorian times.

    "In Japan, teaching practices have changed markedly in the last 50 years, through a process of gradual, incremental improvements over time. Japan gives teachers themselves primary responsibility for improving classroom practice."

  • He highlights how participation in continual professional development, known as kounaikenshuu, is considered a core job requirement in Japan.

    Mr Twigg also points out that in England, teachers lead students through a series of steps to help them learn how to solve problems.

  •  
    England's schools should take lessons from Japan and the Far East on how to improve performance, the shadow education secretary says.

    Stephen Twigg says despite many school reforms, there has been little change to the style of classroom teaching since Victorian times.
