Forum 34 | Sara Ahmed | Complaint: Diversity Work, Feminism, and Institutions - YouTube

Fri, 02/23/2018 - 19:24
"This lecture will draw on interviews with students and staff who have made (or have considered making) complaints about abuses of power within universities. It will show how feminist complaint can be a form of diversity work: as the work you would have to do before some populations can be included within institutions. We learn about the institutional “as usual” from those who are trying to transform institutions. Finally, the lecture will discuss how identifying and challenging abuses of power teaches us about the mechanics of power."

Una mutación social acecha a la humanidad

Mon, 02/19/2018 - 06:13
"las transformaciones del trabajo y de la subjetividad provocadas por la globalización y la financiarización de la economía: la desterritorialización, la precarización del empleo, el declive de la burguesía y el proletariado y su paulatina reemplazo por el “cognitariado” y la clase ejecutiva financiera, el sometimiento de los trabajadores por dispositivos de automatización y control, cuyos efectos incluyen la dificultad para crear formas de solidaridad y de relación cuerpo a cuerpo." … "Me interesa en particular la separación entre el ingeniero y el poeta, entre el conocimiento científico y la imaginación artística, que es una consecuencia de la reducción de la formación, la educación y el sistema escolar y universitario a meras herramientas para la acumulación financiera. El declive de la enseñanza humanística, la introducción de criterios puramente económicos en el pensamiento científico y en la innovación tecnológica son los efectos más evidentes y peligrosos de la sumisión del conocimiento al provecho económico. En este contexto, la figura del economista domina abusivamente el panorama cognitivo. ¿Qué es la economía? ¿Una ciencia? No me parece. La ciencia se define ante todo por su objeto, por la capacidad de formular leyes universales que nos permiten prever los acontecimientos futuros. La economía no tiene un objeto independiente de su actuación, y por ende me parece una técnica, no una ciencia. El problema es que esta técnica pretende reglar las otras formas de conocimiento según un principio que no pertenece a la ciencia, sino al interés de una minoría. La reducción de la dinámica social al provecho económico devino el dogma central del pensamiento contemporáneo: no se puede decir, pensar ni investigar nada si no sirve a la acumulación de capital."

New SAT, but Same Old Problems | radical eyes for equity

Sun, 02/11/2018 - 20:37
"New SAT, but Same Old Problems (The Greenville News) [https://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/opinion/2017/10/22/new-sat-but-same-old-problems/783799001/ ] P.L. Thomas, professor of Education, Furman University While South Carolina has joined several states in rejecting Common Core for public school standards and testing, one powerful legacy remains, the revised SAT. An original architect of the Common Core, David Coleman, now heads the College Board and has championed the new SAT, partly as more aligned with the Common Core. Paul Hyde’s recent coverage of Greenville high schools’ scores on the revised test as well as a piece on charter schools and the SC Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities offers a prime opportunity to address a new test but the same old problems. Many advocating the new SAT have suggested that changing the test could address the large and persistent score gaps along race, social class, and gender lines. However, reporting in Education Week, Catherine Gewertz reveals: “The 2017 SAT scores show inequities similar to those of earlier years. Asian (1181), white (1118), and multiracial (1103) students score far above the average composite score of 1060, while Hispanic (990) and African-American (941) students score significantly below it.” For Greenville county as we consider the newest data and our urge to rank high schools by average SAT scores, we must once again confront some important facts that simple ranking tends to mask: •SAT average scores should never be used to rank schools, districts, or states in terms of academic quality; this caution, in fact, comes from the College Board itself. • SAT scores remain most strongly correlated with parental income, parental levels of education, gender (average male scores are higher than female scores), race, and access to courses. • SAT scores are designed solely to be predictive for college success (not to measure academic quality of any school or state); however, high school GPA has long been a better predictor than the test."

SORE LOSERS: New Rochelle High School Cheerleading Team Banned From New York State Championships After Students Stole Winner’s Prizes

UPDATE: Former NRHS Cheerleading Head Coach Chrissy Stanionis, through her attorney states:

 

"The current squad is subject to a ban of all post season competitions, not explicitly the NYSPHSAA competition to be held in March 2018, the squad would have to qualify for the NYSPHSAA competition as a matter of course."

 

EDITOR’S NOTE: Repeated attempts through media inquiries and Freedom of Information requests to clarify the nature and extent of the “suspension” of ”ban” with officials from the NYSPHSAA, Section 1/Southern Westchester BOCES and the City School District of New Rochelle were repeatedly stonewalled over the past year. Six months ago we asked New Rochelle Athletic Director Steve Young to confirm information we received from a “Cheerleading parent” that the team was ”barred from all postseason competition for two years. ( '17-18 and '18-19 seasons). That would exclude them from sectionals and states." Young would only say “not two years” and refused to elaborate further. Other sources at the state level would only say on background the team was “barred“ from the state championships. BOCES refused to answer questions or provide any records under FOIL. We have never understood why the incident last March, the resulting disciplinary process, whatever ban or bar or suspension was handed down and by whom (we still do not know for sure which body made the decision although the NYSPHSAA has been adamant that it was not them and directed our inquiries to SWBOCES). As these are public schools and state agencies and action was taken against a sports team as a whole not individuals (so there is no personal privacy issue) we see no reason for the full story and related records (with individual names redacted if appropriate under the FOIL law). We will continue to pursue both the story and the records. We have made a new approach to SWBOCES seeking answers and records.
