Education unions warn academy trusts over cuts
The UK’s largest academy chain faces a potential dispute with seven education unions [1] over job cuts, low wages and outsourcing. The unions have now registered a failure to agree with London-based Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) which means the trust now has to halt all cuts and outsourcing to allow for last ditch talks at conciliation service ACAS. Unions have been forced into this step by AET’s refusal to engage in meaningful negotiation over a variety of issues. These include AET’s unwillingness to provide essential financial information on its plans for its schools, outsourcing of sc...

Union Calls for Change after Indiana Teachers Hurt during Active Shooter Training
INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — The Indiana State Teacher's Association claims active shooter training in at least one school system went too far. Teachers in Monticello say their training included getting shot and injured by pellet guns. ISTA wants lawmakers to ban the practice. The vice president of the local teacher’s union, the Twin Lakes Classroom Teachers Organization, was shocked by what she heard from 20 teachers. "They were lined up against the wall, told to crouch down and shot execution style in the back" with a pellet gun, Juli Topp said. ISTA Executive Director Dan Holub was just as shocked. "...

Smoking Among Teens Has Stopped Declining. And Vaping Is to Blame, Officials Say
(NEW YORK) — Cigarette smoking rates have stopped falling among U.S. kids, and health officials believe youth vaping is responsible. For decades, the percentage of high school and middle school students who smoked cigarettes had been declining fairly steadily. For the past three years, it has flattened, according to new numbers released Monday. There may be several reasons, but a recent boom in vaping is the most likely explanation, said Brian King of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We were making progress, and now you have the introduction of a product that is heavily popular among youth that ...
