Asthma Rates Among Children In The United States Are Dropping
BOSTON (CBS) – Asthma rates among children in the United States are dropping. According to the CDC, the percentage of children with asthma fell from 9.4% in 2010 to 8.3% in 2016. Hospitalizations were cut in half over a decade. Asthma is the leading cause of chronic illness in children and can be deadly, so declining rates of disease are encouraging. That means fewer missed days at school, fewer missed days at work for parents, and fewer kids dealing with the difficulties of managing a chronic illness. That said, half of kids with asthma had an asthma attack in 2016 so more work needs to be done. We need to continue ...

UNISON welcomes Cambridge living wage move
UNISON has welcomed Cambridge University’s decision to become an accredited living wage employer with the Living Wage Foundation – a move that “needs to be replicated across all UK universities,” says the union’s head of higher education Donna Rowe-Merriman.

It is currently £8.75 an hour except in London, where the much higher cost of living means a wage of £10.20 an hour is needed. Both figures are more than the government’s ‘natio...

Schools forced to cut teachers ’ and teaching assistants’ posts to make ends meet
Real-terms cuts to school funding since 2015 have led to a big reduction in the number of secondary teachers, teaching assistants and support staff in England, says research published today (Wednesday) by the School Cuts alliance of education unions.

These cuts are now undeniably affecting front-line teaching. The latest School Cuts research – drawn solely from Government figures – shows that staff numbers in secondary sch...
