Some reading for the weekend …
1. The Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) is “an open, global network of members working together within a humanitarian and development framework to ensure that all individuals have the right to a quality, safe, relevant, and equitable education”.
They published a guidance note for Teacher Wellbeing in Emergency Settings earlier this week, establishing “a benchmark for teacher wellbeing; a standard of care and recognition that every teacher – regardless of where they live and work – should expect from the government or humanitarian architecture or communities that support them”. https://inee.org/resources/guidance-note-teacher-wellbeing-emergency-settings
More about INEE here https://inee.org/about-inee
registration for the online launch of the guidance note at 14:00 UK time on 1st June here https://rescue.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_TmoQt-xPT5aMRq9fPzjbIQ?timezone_id=Europe%2FLondon
and PDF of the guidance note below.
2. Slightly longer notice than usual of this RSA event at 13:00 UK time on Thursday 9th June, as we have a long Jubilee holiday next week which will probably disrupt this blog a bit: Dismantling racism in British education with Jeffrey Boakye talking about his forthcoming book, I Heard What You Said, in which “he recounts how it feels to be on the margins of the British education system” https://www.thersa.org/events/2022/06/dismantling-racism-in-british-education
3. The Fawcett Society has just published a report whose title speaks for itself (unlike many titles) Broken Ladders: The myth of meritocracy for women of colour in the workplace https://www.fawcettsociety.org.uk/broken-ladders
Copy of both the full report and the summary and recommendations only below.
4. The mission of Understood is “to help those who learn and think differently discover their potentials, take control, find community, and stay on positive paths along each stage of life’s journey”. ‘I need you to listen’ is a short film from the perspective of a young person with learning and thinking differences https://youtu.be/C4c3iHU0YzQ
