We know that emphasis on "flexibility & choice" has been exaggerated in gig economy/zero hr contracts & there is a blurring of distinction btwn +ve choice and "enforced choice". Partic for those ppl who are excluded frm the traditional labour market.

Banning mobile phones a couple of things: 1. The future is technology & children are the future. 2. Bullying is a problem, relationships is a problem, abuse us a problem. Phones not so much!

I don't say this lightly but... Zero-tolerance and no excuses culture in schools is having a devastating effect on inclusion, reasonable adjustments, SEND and creating an exclusions epidemic - one I've never seen before. and local authorities need to wake up.

First they said they needed data about the children to find out what they’re learning. Then they said they needed data about the children to make sure they are learning. Then the children only learnt what could be turned into data. Then the children became data.

I've been asked if there is counselling support for an adoptive parent who has become estranged from her adult adopted son after a family tragedy. The lady is distraught. I don't know details & adoption is not my area of expertise. Can anyone advise me of anyone who might assist?

If you are black you are four times more likely to be detained than your white counterparts. If you are black you are nine times (yes nine times)more likely to be made subject to a community treatment order.

Really not. Children's commissioner is supposed to support our implementation of UNCRC. All these people on their advisory board have publicly supported policy and directions that would undoubtedly undermine children's rights.
