C. M. Rubin's Global Education Report The stark problem of inequality from a wide range of theoretical and hands-on perspectives was a major theme in my global discussions this month. Inequality (gender and economic) causes huge gaps in who can get a good education, but it also creates gaps in who are unable to use their education for employment. The solutions are numerous and complex, but one fact is clear -- reducing inequality will help children, students and the future of schools. I also covered cultural stories, like the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland and recently unearthed facts about its history. And for my global teacher bloggers, I asked whether or not social media can play a role in a better future of education? Linda Scott (the DP World Chair for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford) spoke to me about the future of gender equality and empowerment for girls and women. She pointed to fascinating statistics that reveal ...

C. M. Rubin: The Global Search for Education: Women - Part 3

"Today, women's movements are mobilizing with strong support from men, holding greater promise that gender equity can be achieved." -- Mary King Educated women with financial backing, technology and connections can contribute to their economies and further the growth of their societies just as efficiently and successfully as men. Yet discrimination against women burdens our world in so many devastating ways. Sixty-six million girls are out of school worldwide. Girls are the victims of 80 percent of all human trafficking crimes. Girls and women are the victims of 75 percent of the AIDS cases in Sub-Saharan Africa, the region hardest hit by this disease. One hundred and fifty million girls are victims of sexual violence in a single year and 50 percent of all the sexual assaults in the world are against girls under 15. Fourteen million girls under 18 will be married this year and, tragically, the number one cause of death for girls 15 - 19 is childbirth. Earlier this yea ...

Tea is served after decision u-turn
Bury Free Press - over 4 years
A BUSINESS owner is celebrating after she successfully overturned a decision that would have killed her livelihood. Linda Scott, owner of Tilly’s Tea Shop and Dress Agency, in High Street, Brandon, was told by Forest Heath District Council last August that she could not have planning permission for the store. But after visiting the shop in June, a Government inspector quashed the decision and granted Ms Scott permission. She said: “My shop is not like anything else in Brandon and I think things are turned down when they haven’t even seen what you do, they are just looking at a piece of paper.” Members turned down the initial application as it was seen as an unnecessary extra food outlet. But the store’s other service - as a dress agency - meant the inspector felt it had a retail use.

    Age 15
    Though still in high school, in 1961 she signed with Canadian-American Records, which had struck gold with the Santo & Johnny's "Sleep Walk".
    More Details Hide Details The label changed her performing name to Linda Scott, producing and releasing the hit "I've Told Every Little Star," a standard written by Oscar Hammerstein II and Jerome Kern for their 1932 production Music In The Air. The track sold over one million copies, earning Scott a gold disc. Scott's three biggest hits came in that first year, with "I've Told Every Little Star" (U.S. #3), "I Don't Know Why" (U.S. #12), and "Don't Bet Money Honey" (U.S. #9). The first two were standards, while the third was one of Scott's own compositions. Scott was the showcase artist when Canadian-American started a subsidiary label, Congress Records, in 1962, and in fact both labels released new material of hers simultaneously. The following year, she sang her hit "Yessirree" in the Chubby Checker vehicle, Don't Knock the Twist. Scott's final U.S. chart appearance was "Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed," released in January 1964, the same month that The Beatles made their first chart appearance.
