Earlier this month, actor Tom Hiddleston spent several days living £1 per day in support of Live Below The Line, which raises money for charities including UNICEF UK. Here are some of Tom’s thoughts about the challenge.I took on the challenge of living on £1 a day out of compassion and a desire to understand the constraints and conditions of those less fortunate, who don’t have a choice. For me it was about voluntarily experiencing even the smallest fraction of the hunger, as well as the discipline required, to subsist on such a small amount. The world’s poorest families, all over the world, face such malnutrition that their growth and development is held back.Here’s the thing. I haven’t really ever lived below the line – not below the poverty line. I still live in a nice house in London, with running water and a roof over my head, with gas and electricity. Clean drinking water comes rushing out of the kitchen tap. My surroundings are still comfortable. But the children who live below the poverty line have none of these things.Conversely, I live a very active, very blessed life. It wasn’t always thus: everyone starts at the bottom. I have worked hard since I left school to get to where I am now. But even that statement alone is a declaration of good fortune. My parents had sufficient income, not only to feed me regularly and to feed me well, but also to send me to good schools. To state the obvious: education is power. It always has been; it always will be. I’ve been very, very lucky. It has given me an emotional and physical strength, which anyone who has lived below the line, for a long time, doesn’t have.Most of us are physically active. I am propelled through my life by an unceasing supply of energy: three square meals of nutritious food (eggs, oats, meat, fish), but also coffee, tea, bananas, smoothies, organic vegetables, fresh fruit, chocolate, biscuits. If ever I feel drained there is always energy within easy reach. Like most people, I rush about. I dash in and out of town for meetings. I’m on the move all the time. When I am working as an actor, it is first and foremost a physical act, on stage or on set. I was lucky, that when I took this challenge on, I wasn’t doing physical action, stunts and battle sequences.Live Below The Line made me think about food in an entirely different way. I had to plan better, to budget better. I didn’t waste a penny, or a crumb. It was a test of mind and will power. It was a test, simply because I am unused to being hungry. In order to stay within my budget I had to think carefully, and pay more attention when cooking my own meals. I had to cook my own meals and not buy food on the go. When you only have a 1 kg bag of rice, you take care not to burn it. When you only have two eggs per day, you take care to cook them right.I enjoyed cooking during my Live Below The Line week more than I ever have. I enjoyed the meals I made for myself, more than I enjoy the food I would normally buy on the go – a coffee, a sandwich, lunch at a café, or a take-away.Through this challenge I learned the importance of preparing food carefully. I learned to be grateful for every single mouthful. I understood how wasteful I used to be.I’ve seen the difference UNICEF can do first-hand, at every level of care for malnourished children, in Guinea in West Africa. I undertook the Live Below The Line challenge to raise awareness and support UNICEF in their commitment to save the lives of the poorest children in the world.Ultimately Live Below The Line has taught me gratitude, on a level far beyond the intellectual. This week, if you have done the same, you have my greatest respect.Please visit Live Below the Line to pledge your support.To read the full blog, click here.
“It was better than I could have dreamed.”This time last week, that dance was just that — a dream. Cohen wanted to put on a show despite her age, but she didn’t have a dance partner. She said she wanted to jive, and jive she did.At 103 years old, Kitty Cohen tore up the dance floor at the VIP Dance Events competition in Mississauga on Sunday, aided by her new partner, pro dancer Blake McGrath.“It was exciting to the point of distinction,” Cohen said, a little breathless, after the performance.

APTN National NewsA few dozen Manitoba youth gathered at the first North-End youth forum.The forum hosted break-out sessions and guest speakers all in the effort to hear how the youth view their community and how they want to see it change.As APTN National News reporter Shaneen Robinson explains, these inner city youth are facing many of the same issues Aboriginal young people are facing in urban and rural communities across Canada.
TransCanada shareholders will be asked to approve the change at the company’s next annual meeting.The company says it plans to continue trading under TRP on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges. CALGARY, A.B. – TransCanada Corp. is changing its name to TC Energy.The pipeline and utilities company says the change better reflects the scope of its operations across North America.TransCanada chief executive Russ Girling says TC Energy “clearly articulates” the company’s business which includes pipelines, power generation and energy storage operations in Canada, the United States and Mexico.
Rabat – Unsatisfied with the performance of the current authorities, a group of young Tunisian activists has called for a general strike to protest against bad governance.Calling themselves ‘Red Vests,’ an apparent nod to France’s ongoing rising prices and anti-‘arrogant elite’ protests, the Tunisian group said that their resentment and desire to demonstrate is motivated by systemic government failure and widespread corruption in the country.Like their French counterparts, Tunisia’s Red Vests say that an aloof and corrupt government has driven up unemployment and poverty, exacerbating the grievances of the North African country’s large portion of disenfranchised. Read Also: Tunisian Government Approves Equal Inheritance LawDespite Tunisia’s reputation for progressive reform and most performing democracy in the Arab world, the Red Vests accuse the country’s authorities of championing “a policy of systemic impoverishment.”In a Facebook post on Friday, December 7, the group said it wants to “save Tunisia” from both its harsh socio-economic circumstances and the “lack of vision” prevailing in government circles.The Red Vests movement’s call for a general strike to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the Arab Spring comes amid a spiral of strikes. In November alone, the North African country was home to 746 social protests, according to the Economic and Social Rights Forum quoted by Middle East Eye.While Tunisia has collected enthusiastic applause from the international community for its bold liberal-minded reforms, the IMF-monitored austerity measures have created quarters of unhappy and economically disaffected.
TORONTO — The federal government says it has been notified that China has suspended the export permits of two Canadian pork exporters.A spokeswoman for Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau says a formal notice of the suspension was received Wednesday after Customs China posted the information on its website.Kate Hawkins says it believes the cause of the action is administrative.Canadian pork producer Olymel LP says its plant in Red Deer, Alta., is one of two affected by the suspension. The other pork producer has yet to be identified.Spokesman Richard Vigneault says the Quebec-based company is assessing the situation, but so far there is no impact on production at the plant.The suspension comes as relations between the two countries have become tense following last December’s arrest in Vancouver of Huawei Technologies executive Meng Wanzhou on a U.S. warrant. China has since arrested two Canadians and halted canola imports from two Canadian companies. The Canadian Press
In a press release issued in The Hague, ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said he had received a sealed envelope and supporting materials that had previously been entrusted to Mr. Annan – who is also the Chairman of the African Union Panel of Eminent African Personalities – by a commission investigating the violence that erupted in December 2007 and early 2008.Mr. Moreno-Ocampo’s office has had the situation in Kenya under preliminary examination since last year, and last week a high-level Kenyan Government delegation visited The Hague to discuss the need for accountability for those responsible for the violence.“The Kenyan authorities, while continuing all efforts to set up national proceedings, have committed to start sharing information on the current status of investigations and prosecutions arising out of the post-election violence, as well as on measures taken to protect witnesses, with a view to assisting the [ICC] Prosecutor’s work,” the press release noted.If the efforts to conduct national proceedings fail, the Government agreed last week to refer the situation to the ICC within one year.“The transmission of documents by Mr. Kofi Annan forms part of these collaborative efforts to ensure that justice is not delayed and that future crimes can be prevented,” Mr. Moreno-Ocampo said.The ICC is an independent, permanent court that investigates and prosecutes people accused of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. It is based on a treaty known as the Rome Statute, of which 109 countries are now States Parties. 9 July 2009The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) today received sealed information about persons suspected of being responsible for last year’s post-election violence in Kenya from Kofi Annan, the former United Nations secretary-general who helped mediate an end to the deadly clashes.
Wisconsin’s Kohl Center is a notoriously tough place to play for road opponents. Ohio State knows this more than anyone. After a 71-67 loss to the Badgers Saturday afternoon, the Buckeyes have lost nine straight in Wisconsin’s arena. In a press conference Friday, coach Thad Matta said OSU’s lack of success in Madison, Wis., bothers him. “You always remember the losses more than you remember the wins,” he said. “It is what it is, and you just look at the challenge ahead.” Matta recalled a couple of especially painful games, losing at Wisconsin, 72-66, his first year at OSU, and losing last year, 65-43, as the No. 15-ranked team in the nation. After the undefeated Buckeyes led by 15 with 13 minutes left in the game, this loss is likely to be right up there. Fifth-year senior forward David Lighty said the Kohl Center is one of the most challenging road venues in the Big Ten. “It’s home court for them and no one likes to lose at home,” he said at Friday’s press conference. “They don’t lose too much at home.” Saturday’s victory for Bo Ryan’s club makes the Badgers 150-11 at home in Ryan’s 10 seasons there. During his tenure, his squad has the fourth-highest home-winning percentage in the country, behind Kansas, Duke and Utah State. Under Ryan, Badger basketball is synonymous with a slow-tempo, defense-oriented game. Matta said that in the past, he’s joked with Ryan about the style of play. “A couple years ago, we were getting ready to play them in the Big Ten Tournament, and I ran into him,” Matta said. “I said, ‘Bo, we’re both in the NCAA Tournament. This doesn’t matter; let’s just not let anyone play defense, and see if we both can’t score 100.’” In reality, Ryan’s squads rarely allow opponents to score more than 70, especially at home. The Badgers have surrendered fewer than 70 points for 38 straight home games, the longest current streak in the country. OSU is second, with 37 straight. Adding to the difficulty in scoring against Wisconsin is the Badgers’ ability to hold onto the ball on the offensive end, and not allow transition baskets, said senior guard Jon Diebler. “Obviously we like to get out and run a lot,” Diebler said at Friday’s press conference. “When you play a team where you don’t get a steal and get an easy layup, it’s hard to pick up the tempo.” With their 15-0 second-half run to tie the game, the Badgers ignited the crowd and their student section, nicknamed the “Grateful Red.” Lighty, who hasn’t won in Madison, said Wisconsin’s students are one of the most difficult aspects of playing at the Kohl Center. “Especially when they’re feeling good and making shots, it gets loud in there,” he said. “It’s an environment suited for college basketball.”

Stay on target The virtual world found in Ready Player One is very similar to MMO games. Like MMOs, The OASIS features its own economy, history, and cultural norms. Given the similarities between MMOs and The OASIS, gamers (and our wonderful readers) will no doubt recognize much of the movie’s video game terminology. However, audiences unfamiliar with games may have a difficult time understanding specific terms used in the film. That’s where we come in.In order to prepare folks for Ready Player One (even those torn apart by it), we’ve compiled a list of the 7 MMO terms you’ll need to know. You may have heard these terms in passing, or know them intimately. Either way, a good crash course on these terms should help everyone out.RespawnIf you die while playing an MMO or most online games, you almost always get brought back to life. This is respawning. Upon your return, you either end up exactly where you left off or at a nearby save point. Thanks to respawning, players can take chances they otherwise wouldn’t if they had limited lives.This is also the case in The OASIS. Protagonist Wade Watts and his friends can partake in death-defying stunts without fear of dying. The only real penalty one suffers after dying in The OASIS is losing valuable loot. This can also be the case in other MMOs. In general, respawning makes playing online games (and even offline ones) a lot more enjoyable.Easter EggThese aren’t the eggs kids paint (and rabbits lay?) during Easter. Easter Eggs have been a staple of gaming almost from the beginning. They are either objects or inside jokes developers like to hide in games. They are usually put in there for the hardest of the hardcore fan. World of Warcraft is known for containing Easter Eggs from franchises like Super Mario Bros and Final Fantasy, for example.The central plot of Ready Player One actually revolves around an Easter Egg. The game’s creator, James “Anorak” Halliday, planted this object somewhere in The OASIS. The first person who can find it gets awarded with Halliday’s vast fortune. Naturally, Wade Watts and other “gunters” (egg hunters) do whatever they can to find this Easter Egg. If they succeed, they can finally make a better life for themselves in the real world.NPCNPCs, or Non-Playable Characters, are the AI-controlled characters found in any video game. They aren’t limited to humans, either. Animals, robots, and monsters all fall under the NPC umbrella. It’s actually quite difficult to think of a game that doesn’t have NPCs of some sort. In fact, some of gaming’s most memorable characters are NPCs. Think of all the interesting individuals you meet in games like The Elder Scrolls or Fallout.Wade Watts comes across various NPCs during the course of Ready Player One. So keep in mind that when he or his friends talk about NPCs, they aren’t referring to other players.RaidA Raid is a special mission that multiple players can partake in. Usually, Raids contain challenges a single player cannot hope to overcome. Raids typically have endless enemy waves and a large monster (or more) to slay. Raids can even have players fight against each other.Given their difficulty, Raids almost always reward players with high-end loot not found in other game modes. Of course, rare drops aren’t always guaranteed; meaning players may have to replay Raids multiple times to get the goodies they desire. Raids are mostly associated with MMOs, but even games like Destiny have them.PVPPVP means Player Versus Player. This is different from PVE, Player Versus Environment. As the name tells you, this is a mode in online games where players can fight and kill one another. The OASIS in Ready Player One has dedicated PVP locations and even entire worlds strictly for PVP. Wade Watts has to travel through dangerous PVP areas and avoiding fighting the “Sixer” forces during his hunt for the egg.Games like EVE Online are famous for their large-scale PVP battles which can contain thousands of player-controller ships at a single time. For many players, PVP is the main reason they play MMOs or other online games. To them, nothing is as thrilling as facing off against human-controlled enemies.AggroAggro is when a monster becomes “aggressive” and focuses all of their attention on a single player. Typically, you’ll want monsters to attack players who have high defense (“tanks”) since they can survive such a barrage. While these players draw aggro from monsters, users who specialize in magic or ranged attacks can attack from a safe distance.Having players that can effectively draw aggro is a vital component in MMOs, especially during Raids. Even non-MMO titles like Monster Hunter: World have an aggro system in place.BuffThis doesn’t refer to waxing one’s car. A Buff is a beneficial status effect that boosts attributes for you and your party. Buffs include increased health, defense, and attack damage. Dedicated healers can place buffs on tanks to help them survive vicious attacks or heal the team if they are low on health. Conversely, “de-buffs” remove beneficial status effects from enemies or players.Games like Entropia Universe and other MMOs rely heavily on buffs and debuffs. Managing both is the key to overcoming the toughest monsters. Plus, knowing when to buff and debuff adds a nice level of strategy to battles. 10 Best Worst Items in Hot Topic’s Clearance SectionReal There You Guys: Ready Player One and Nostalgia as Generational Poison Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
Police in the Staffordshire Moorlands are warning motorists to take extra care on the roads as an Amber Weather Warning comes into force across the area. A number of reports of accidents and vehicles stuck on ice have been reported – with the latest weather forecast predicting more icy conditions to come. Police are currently (12.55pm) working to recover a vehicle on Brown Lane in Flash. A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: “Really be careful in the Moorlands the road surfaces are dangerous. Numerous reports of collisions and vehicles stuck on ice. “We can’t put warning signs out as they will blow away. Brown Lane, Flash will be closed until it is safe to move the vehicle. “Weather conditions are extreme on Morridge Top and surrounding roads. High winds and icy roads, please avoid if you can. Please take care driving.” A Met Office Amber Weather Warning (the second highest tier) for ice is in force across the Staffordshire Moorlands from 1pm this afternoon (Saturday December 15) until 6am on Sunday morning – with a yellow warning for snow and ice in force from 9am this morning until 9am on Sunday. The Met Office warning states: “Freezing rain is expected to result in the rapid development of widespread ice, with very dangerous travelling conditions likely. “Injuries from slips and falls and danger to life on icy surfaces are likely. “Dangerous driving conditions are likely leading to road traffic collisions, road closures and longer journey times.” Inrix, the traffic data company, reports Brown Lane in Flash is closed in both directions closed due to an accident and wet and icy roads from The New Inn to Turning for Northfield Farm. Traffic is coping well. The area of Brown Lane in Flash affected by the closure (Image: Inrix) There are also reports of icy conditions on the A523 Ashbourne Road in Bradnop. Just across the border in Cheshire, the A54 is closed between Buxton and Bosley due to an accident and icy conditions at Wildboarclough Read MoreTrue Grit: Terry retires after more than 25 years of gritting Staffordshire Moorlands roads Buxton Weather Watch, a social media page that monitors weather in Buxton and surrounding areas of the Peak District, said that freezing lane was likely throughout the afternoon. The page said: “Freezing rain is one of the most dangerous weather phenomenon we can get here in the UK and there’s a high chance of some this afternoon. “Some initial snow is possible over the tops, however most places will see a transition to this ice rain through the day. Main roads might be ok, however on untreated pavements and road there’s a risk of black ice developing due to this freezing rain as per previous posts. Take extreme care when travelling later today.” Read MoreCouncil aims to build 6,000 homes in Moorlands as new strategy launched Staffordshire County Council said it deployed its gritters across the county last night. Today’s outdoor markets in Leek have already been cancelled as a result of bad weather. A Staffordshire Moorlands District Council spokeswoman said: “”Unfortunately due to the amber weather warning issued by the Met Office we are having to cancel the Farmers’ and Antique, Craft & Collectors Market in the market place, Leek. “However the Indoor Butter and Trestle Market will still be open as usual.” We’ll bring you any updates affecting the area as they become available.
Investors received with concern yesterday’s announcement of a €10.5m after-tax loss in the first quarter by Hellenic Bank and warned that the bank needs to improve the area of governance.“In terms of efficiency, we have the same situation as we had when the Church was in charge,” said Andreas Leonidou, the top executive of Prochoice Chrimatistiriaki, a Larnaca-based investment firm. “Provisions are raised continuously. It’s strange for an economy rising at a 3 per cent rate to see an increase in provisions”.“Either they had been withholding information about bad debtors or there is something wrong with the management,” he continued. “There can be no other explanation”.Hellenic Bank, until four years ago dominated by the Church of Cyprus, is the only Cypriot lender that survived the 2013 banking crisis without resorting to a bail-in or a bailout. It posted last year an after-tax loss of €63.5m. In the first quarter of 2017, it increased its provisions for loan impairment by €27.3m to almost €1.4bn against €916.5m in the respective quarter of 2014, a year after the culmination of the banking crisis.From January to March this year, the bank’s cost-to-income ratio, an indicator reflecting a lender’s financial soundness, rose to 69.6 per cent compared to 40.7 per cent in the first quarter of 2014.“Up to 130 new workers have been hired over the past two years without reducing the number of big salary earners,” Leonidou continued, adding that unlike Bank of Cyprus, which offered in recent years three voluntary-exit schemes to reduce its staff levels, Hellenic failed to do so.The only exception was the scheme of June to September 2013, which allowed the bank to reduce its staff level by 165. It employed at the end of March 1,652 workers compared with 1,403 three years earlier, with staff cost rising to €20.9m in the first quarter of 2017 from €19.7m three years before.Leonidou said that the bank has hardly increased its customer loans over the past years, even as it attracted more customer deposits, resulting in the bank parking €2bn in excess liquidity at the European Central Bank (ECB) at an annual cost of 0.4 per cent, or €8m.“These are funds that could have been invested in securities with even zero yield such as German government bonds or those of countries rated AAA,” Leonidou continued, adding that inefficiencies also result in slow response times in opening customer accounts.“Hellenic Bank still requires guarantors to extend mortgage credit,” he said, adding that the bank remains “stuck to old mentalities”.“Instead of being the first to launch aggressive mortgage schemes, even Bank of Cyprus, with a 100-per-cent loans-to-deposits ratio, offers better terms,” he said.Leonidou attributed the blame to Hellenic’s board, dominated by the New York-based hedge fund Third Point and the Nicosia-based entertainment software developer Wargaming.net, with 26.2 per cent and 24.9 per cent shareholding, respectively.“They are promising over the past years to better manage these funds and it looks like they cannot,” he said. “Third Point and Wargaming are demonstrating some kind of indifference and we don’t know the reasons”.On Wednesday, Hellenic’s chief executive officer Ioannis Matsis, who got the ECB’s approval last month, said that the bank’s management is aware of the challenges lying ahead in reducing its bad loan portfolio, which fell to 57 per cent in the first quarter compared with 58 per cent in the previous quarter.The bank’s chairwoman Irena Georgiadou announced yesterday her decision to step down and remain member of the board, citing personal reasons.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

File photo / Forum News ServiceCox’s Bazar,Bangladesh:Marooned on a dusty slope in the world’s largest refugee camp Osiur Rahman looked to the hill where a Rohingya girl was buried in a landslide just days earlier and contemplated his chances should the earth give way beneath his feet "Our families would be killed There are children everywhere around here We constantly fear that rain could trigger a landslide" the 53-year-old told AFP on the steep embankment where he lives with nine family members in a bamboo shack For the 700000 Rohingya Muslims who have fled to southeast Bangladesh in the past nine months the approaching monsoon season poses the most serious threat since they were violently expelled from Myanmar Close to one million of the stateless Muslim minority live in the Cox’s Bazar district but the new arrivals stranded on unstable hills in bamboo and plastic shacks are especially vulnerable Representational image AP A massive operation to shore up the camps against disaster is in overdrive with bulldozers levelling hills and refugees bunkering down however they can But as the rains approach the young girl’s death this month in a torrent of mud and rock has heightened fears of a much greater tragedy There is a dearth of safe land to relocate the estimated 200000 refugees in direct danger of floods and landslides and just 21000 have been moved so far "We could literally have lives lost as people slide down hillsides and valleys are flooded with water" Kevin J Allen head of the UNHCR refugee agency’s operations in Cox’s Bazar told AFP "They could face yet again another emergency this time driven by mother nature" The camps’ makeshift homes are predicted to receive more than 25 metres (eight feet) of rainfall over three months starting June — roughly triple what Britain gets in a year Cox’s Bazar has been battered by cyclones for three years running having already suffered astonishing devastation in the past Cyclones have killed tens of thousands along the Bangladesh coast in recent decades and countless more have been swept to their deaths in floods and landslides This time nature is on a collision course with refugees who have nowhere to run — no higher ground and no cyclone shelters Nowhere to go The first storms underscored the fragility of the camps: the brief rains turned roads into quagmires crumbled hillsides and flooded low-lying areas The huge endeavour to prevent disaster has seen slopes vulnerable to collapse flattened and extensive canal systems carved throughout the camps Toilets are being fortified with sandbags to prevent a major disease outbreak should floodwater meet overflowing latrines Representational image Reuters But there are limits to how much can be done Bangladesh has restricted the use of sturdier materials for shelters because it may suggest the Rohingya plan to stay contrary to Dhaka’s desire to return them to Myanmar The roof was blown clean off Noor Mohammad’s shack in a recent squall He had gathered chunks of wood and rocks to weigh it down but was "scared of what could pass" when Bangladesh’s wild weather barrels through The Rohingya are no strangers to the monsoon he said But in Myanmar villages were built to withstand its ferocity and trees provided a bulwark against the elements "Here there is nothing to stop the wind" he said gesturing to the deforested hills stretching for miles Bangladesh has freed up hundreds of hectares (acres) but most is hilly and was prone to landslides even before the Rohingya uprooted trees for shelters and firewood ‘We will die’ Mosques and community centres could shelter 150000 people if needed said Kazi Abdur Rahman acting district administrator of Cox’s Bazar "But if there is a big cyclone and all these people need relocating there is not a system for that yet It is not possible to shift one million people" he told AFP The Rohingya who have fled persecution time and again fear being on the run once more "Everybody is afraid wondering where we’ll go if our houses are destroyed" Rohingya imam Muhammad Yusuf told AFP Aid groups say a cyclone or devastating storm could cut access to the camps for a week — restricting food and supplies to a tent city with a population greater than San Francisco The World Food Programme’s emergency coordinator Peter Guest said thousands of porters were being assembled to carry food on foot if access roads were cut Those left homeless or starving will have nowhere to run anyway: the Rohingya are encircled by military checkpoints and prohibited from leaving "What else can we do If Allah does not protect us we will die" said 60-year-old refugee Dil Mohammad This is one part of a series of readers’ responses to this week’s cover A fabulous friend recently said to me "Im just so tired of the new national pastime Beat up a Teacher" She had seen the nasty cover of Time with a court gavel about to smash an apple (a good one by the way) She had seen the title she knew was a lie: Its nearly impossible to fire a bad teacher But I think what pushed her over the edge was the subheading: A group of Silicon Valley investors wants to change that The irony drips The Wolves of Wall Street woke up one day and decided simultaneously that all the problems with American education could be solved by…firing teachers Seriously My dear friend could not even muster outrage She was just tired She saw prestigious Time as next up to bat in a long line of cheap swings at teachers Time could have written about any number of ways to improve our schoolsrestoring school funding actually ensuring equity and ending the insane and costly No Child Left Behind testing regime which has replaced real classroom instruction with tests tests and more tests Instead Time decided to write about tenure They came to the astonishing conclusion that the one critical reform we must make is to make it easier to fire teachers Due process policies like tenure exist in almost every state Although timelines and appeal processes differ the concept is the same: After passing a probationary period and satisfying performance expectations teachers get two basic things before they can be fired: (1) The teacher gets to know why (2) If she feels she is a good teacher being fired for a bad reason she gets to defend herself and tell her side of the story Thats it States continually review whether their tenure policies are fair efficient and effective More than 31 states have revised their tenure and dismissal policies in just the last few years Policies are changed all the time But the purpose of tenure to protect good teachers from being fired for bad reasons is the constant I had a hot argument with a guy who truly believed that if you were a good teacher you didnt need tenure He said "Teachers used to be fired for their religious or political beliefs That never happens anymore" His point: Only incompetent teachers are at risk His conclusion: Take away tenure because incompetent teachers should not have the right to defend themselves So I told him about Jennifer Jennifer asked me not to use her last name because she is afraid of being fired Jennifer is a Special Education teacher who talks about her students with such pride and such love But there were tears in her eyes when she told me what mandated testing did to her beloved students Parents started asking her questions about these tests Jennifer talked to me as her union leader to ask if she could get fired for giving parents information about their right to opt out or whether she could be terminated if she gave them her professional opinion about how these tests might negatively affect their kids She is right to be afraid She could get fired in some states for telling parents the truth We get questions from teachers about whether they could get fired for refusing a parents order to change a students grade Teachers all over the country have wondered if they can be fired on the basis of the now widely discredited VooDoo Value-Added-Measure which pretends to place a human child into a test tube and magically tease out all the factors that could affect that particular childs score on that particular day with the remaining numbers being the "value" the teacher "added" to the score There is of course no such equation My friend may be tired but I am not Time needs to celebrate the real heroes of our schools: the teachers who greet students every day at the school house door and take them as they come Tenure lets teachers challenge students with demanding curriculum choices and to grade students fairly based on the students work rather their parents connections It allows teachers to speak out when school districts cut corners or cut budgets Good teachers know the Blame the Teacher game is a distraction from talking about real solutions like reducing class sizes giving our students time for meaningful one-on-one instruction and funding great schools for all kids
