Protests and occupations against the right wing government’s CPE labour law swept France’s universities last week.

Twenty five universities are in occupation. The anti-CPE movement at the Sorbonne started (...)

Riots in France - against the government’s youth jobs plan
By : Paris - Tuesday March 14, 2006
Students invade Paris school Scores of angry students and other demonstrators invaded one of Paris’ most elite schools on Monday and clashed with police in a new escalation of protests against the government’s youth jobs plan. About 200 high school and university students swarmed into the College de France to press their demand that Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin withdraw a plan that they fear will hurt job security. The protests came a day after Villepin, hoping to (...)

Sweat Shop Workers Tour US Colleges That Sell Their Products
By : David Swanson - Tuesday March 14, 2006
By David Swanson "It would take half our salary to buy one of the sweat shirts we produce," Josefina Hernandez Ponce told students at the University of Virginia on Wednesday night. The classroom was packed to capacity with students in every seat and squeezed in on the floor. A flyer passed around showed where the $39.99 paid for a UVA sweatshirt goes ($2.40 in royalties to the university, $0.20 in pay to the workers who made it). But that familiar story wasn’t all that Hernandez (...)

Harvard study blasts Bush education policy
By : Jason Szep - Sunday February 19, 2006
By Jason SzepTue President George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind education policy has in some cases benefited white middle-class children over blacks and other minorities in poorer regions, a Harvard University study showed on Tuesday. Political compromises forged between some states and the federal government have allowed schools in some predominantly white districts to dodge penalties faced by regions with larger ethnic minority populations, the study said. Bush’s 2001 No (...)

Worse Than McCarthy
By : ELLEN SCHRECKER - Sunday February 12, 2006
By ELLEN SCHRECKER When Barrows Dunham, chairman of Temple University’s philosophy department, faced the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1953, he knew that his job was on the line. He was determined not to cooperate with the committee or name names; so, after giving his name, address, and - reluctantly - his date and place of birth, he invoked the Fifth Amendment’s privilege against self-incrimination. He was more forthcoming with Temple’s investigation, (...)

Rumsfeld’s Scheme to Spy on Your Kids Pentagon Database Leaves No Child Alone

By MIKE FERNER All over the country, organized citizens are fighting to restrict the military’s presence in schools. But having recruiters troll high schools cafeterias is just one way the Pentagon inundates our youngsters with messages to "Go Army!" Since 2002, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has spent a half-million dollars a year creating a database it claims is "arguably the largest repository of 16-25 year-old youth data in the country, containing roughly 30 million (...)

SOTU 2006 Comments By Peter Fredson February 2, 2006 The lengthy speech of G.W.Bush at the SOTU met all of my expectations. I expected Bush to mention 9/11 and was not mistaken. I expected many other words and phrases designed to arouse emotions and was not mistaken. Terrah, Iraq, Stay the Course, God, etc. all were applauded by the sycophant gathering. I have dissected some of Bush’s speeches and found many phrases to be old friends. Bush promises have previously been promised (...)

Law Students Turn Backs On Alberto Gonzales & Say No To Bush Spying
By : notepad - Wednesday February 1, 2006

Future American lawyers to be proud of Alberto Gonzales spoke before law students at Georgetown today, justifying illegal, unauthorized surveilance of US citizens, but during the course of his speech the students in class did something pretty ballsy and brave. They got up from their seats and turned their backs to him. To make matters worse for Gonzales, additional students came into the room, wearing black cowls and carrying a simple banner, written on a sheet. Fortunately for him, it (...)

Facing Movement for Democracy, SEIU Gives Massachusetts Members to Teachers Union
By : Ferd Wulkan - Tuesday January 31, 2006
by Ferd Wulkan More than 2,000 SEIU members who work for the University of Massachusetts (UMass) left SEIU in late 2005, just as SEIU was leaving the AFL-CIO. What’s most surprising is that SEIU preferred to lose these workers, rather than let them have a democratic local. Members on four UMass campuses, in 10 bargaining units, were represented by four different SEIU locals until 2003. Through a top-down reorganization of locals under SEIU’s New Strength Unity Plan, all these (...)

Girls Against Boys?
By : Katha Pollitt - Friday January 27, 2006
by Katha Pollitt I went to Radcliffe, the women’s wing of Harvard, at a time when the combined undergraduate student body was fixed at four male students for every female one. I don’t remember anyone worrying about the boys’ social lives, or whether they would find anyone to marry—even though nationally, too, boys were more likely to go to college and to graduate than girls. When in 1975 President Derek Bok instituted equal-access admissions, nobody said, "Great (...)

by Jonathan Kozol Stuyvesant High School is one of the most vivid symbols of the consequences of decades of systematic racism in the United States. Black and Hispanic children make up about 72 percent of the citywide enrollment in the New York City public schools. At Stuyvesant � the most prestigious public school in the city � they make up less than six percent of enrollment. In fact, the percentage of black kids who go to Stuyvesant has decreased dramatically in the last (...)

FAR FROM NARNIA : Philip Pullman’s secular fantasy for children
By : LAURA MILLER - Monday January 2, 2006
by LAURA MILLER Every year at the University of East Anglia, in Norwich, England, a guest is invited to speak on the subject of religion and education. Sometimes, a prominent bishop is asked to deliver a lecture, but, as a rule, the event isn’t exactly a big draw. This year, the auditorium was filled, and another room, with a video feed, had to be set up for those who couldn’t fit into the main hall. The speaker, Philip Pullman, is fervently admired for his sophisticated (...)

From Sir Henry Neville AKA Shakespeare Bush Lies

To my kind and gentle reader, please be patient while I conjure the spirit of Shakespeare, to call Bush a liar.

It was the beginning of November and a new book was just released titled ’The Truth Will Out’ claiming that Shakespeare was Sir Henry Neville . One of the authors is named Rubinstein and a search of his background associates him with the Intelligent design (...)

By Michelle Fawcett When I moved to NYC to start a Ph.D. program at NYU in 2000, my biggest concern was not the rigors of graduate study or the challenge of moving to another new city alone. It was the fear of being unable to survive economically. Sure, I was going to work in addition to being a student: as a graduate assistant, or GA, for my department. GAs work as research assistants (RAs) or teaching assistants (TAs). The work of an RA might include co-editing an article with a (...)

Overcoming Apartheid
By : Jonathan Kozol - Wednesday December 7, 2005
1 comment
by JONATHAN KOZOL Apartheid education, rarely mentioned in the press or openly confronted even among once-progressive educators, is alive and well and rapidly increasing now in the United States. Hypersegregated inner-city schools—in which one finds no more than five or ten white children, at the very most, within a student population of as many as 3,000—are the norm, not the exception, in most northern urban areas today. "At the beginning of the twenty-first century," (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
