That is unlikely to be a slogan that we will see on Conservative posters at the next election. The Tories know it is a deeply unpopular idea. Only 6% of the UK population support it, according to a YouGov poll for the NUT (84% were opposed with 10% undecided).
As our information and communication technologies evolve, they redefine the ways we learn. Not only have the technological tools of the 21st century transformed the content of our educational landscape, but they have also sparked a revision in the actual processes through which we think and solve problems.
With summer long gone, it's time to head back to uni. Of course, not all of us are lucky enough to be going to the Oxfords of this world and so, with ...
Apparently, editing your own work is not an easy task. You have established a connection with your work and you have a bias on how you've written it since it is your personal work of art.
This autumn, for the second year in a row, the number of young people going to university will fall. Three years on from the decision to increase tuition fees, the coalition's promise that the hike in the cost of higher education would help universities and not hinder applicants has been found wanting.
I have secretly accepted a 'daring mission' of creating (okay, I mean, 'imagining') an educational utopia, also known as 'Edutopia'. Of course, I will just be offering some personal perspectives that are largely based form my visits to thirteen universities and liberal art colleges in the United States.
Yes, there may be some graduates who are lazy and bring their unemployment on themselves, but there are many of us who aren't and can't afford to be. We try, we work hard, we have good grades, we show initiative, we are creative, we are dynamic, and we might be funny. So why are we unemployed?
It seems almost laughable that McDonalds could be associated with any kind of class, grandeur or romance. Yet that is exactly what messers Ford, Welland, Peachey and co. attempted to do. Yes, people from my school, my class at school have achieved internet fame!
So you're thinking of going to college but can't depend on financial support from your parents. In this situation it may seem like financial constraints mean you'll never be able to achieve your goals. Indeed, with the average cost of attending an in-state public college in 2012-2013 reaching over $22,000, it's little wonder you're concerned!
School uniforms instil a sense of discipline into the school day. They are an efficient eliminator of choice. A school uniform is a vital part of respecting one's school and the start of a more disciplined approach to learning.
Just as I write this, many students are packing up their lives and preparing to move out to attend university. For many others, however, they are looking or are in full time jobs. All this got me thinking, why should students go onto higher education?
Job interviews - for most of us the very thought sends a shiver up our spine. We all have our dreaded fears when it comes to going through the process meeting your hopeful employer for the first time. Many questions run through our mind before we even make the awkward first-time handshake...
We were all so comfortable and content. I hope we can make it a tradition to build a blanket fort because it's simply, well just that, simple. It was such a relaxing, and easy way to spend a day. If you ever find yourself not knowing what to do on a lazy day, I highly suggest finding a couple of blankets, and friends to build your own fort.
For some students, the idea of boasting about newfound sexual promiscuity at uni is enticing. Why not? The freedom of suddenly being away from home is there to be embraced. However for those who are still virgins when they reach university, the idea of sex itself (not to mention the kind of environment mentioned above) can be incredibly nerve-racking.
It's been a year since the increased tuition fees came into play within Higher Education; exams have been taken, coursework has been handed in, and the first intake of students to pay the higher fees are looking forward to starting their second year of university...
Sit tight as we explore the mathematical phenomenon that is the UCAS points system and examine how it affects your university application...
