New toolkit highlights positive impact of teaching assistants
UNISON has never doubted the hugely positive impact that teaching assistants (TAs) make in schools, whether in pupil attainment, pastoral support or enabling teachers to focus on teaching. Indeed, every year UNISON’s Stars in Our Schools’ celebrations collect hundreds of examples of their extraordinary work. But, for a long time, little independent research was carried out examining their impact. Indeed a toolkit produced by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), a leading independent organisation that focuses on research in education, even claimed that, while TAs bring value to school communities, they did ...

New York ’s Vaccine Mandate Is Working, But Hospitals Are Struggling With the Fallout
By almost any measure, New York State’s requirement that health care workers get vaccinated against COVID-19, which was announced on Aug. 16 and went into effect Sept. 27, has been a success. Thousands of reticent health care workers across the Empire State have been vaccinated over the last month. Among hospital staff specifically, 87% were fully vaccinated as of Sept. 28, up from 77% as of Sept. 24. (A similar mandate governing education workers in New York City, which went into effect today, has also resulted in a surge in vaccinations.) However, even health care leaders who support vaccination and vaccine mandate...

Rethinking What it Means to Recover from Addiction
When I kicked cocaine and heroin in 1988, I was told that there was only one way to get better: abstain forever from psychoactive substances including alcohol—and practice the 12 steps made famous by Alcoholics Anonymous. The only alternative, counselors and group members said, was “jails, institutions or death.” My addiction was so extreme that by the end, I was injecting dozens of times a day. So I grabbed the lifeline I was thrown and attended the traditional 12-step rehab program recommended by the hospital where I underwent withdrawal. But once I began to study the scientific data on addiction, I lea...

When he started, Haub tipped the scales at 201 pounds, which for his height was considered overweight. By the end of his snack-food spree, he had lost 27 pounds, putting him at a svelte 174.
