Industry groups welcomed the moves. “Reductions in regulations on businesses and the promise of a faster planning system will provide relief to companies trying to take on staff and invest,” said CBI director-general John Cridland.“Small companies will be central to creating jobs and rebalancing the economy. These measures and a moratorium on new regulation and exemptions should be encouraging to those companies,” said Ernst & Young ITEM Club chief economic adviser Peter Spencer.Further pro-business measures included revising employment tribunal procedures and extending to two years the time employees must work for a company before they can sue for unfair dismissal.The government will also minimise the health and safety burden on business by implementing reforms recommended by Lord Young. The Association of British Insurers welcomed the move. “Lord Young rightly identified how badly interpreted or misunderstood regulation, bureaucracy and disreputable claims management firms have contributed to a compensation culture,” said ABI director of general insurance and health Nick Starling.But others warned the planning regime changes may be hard for local communities to accept.“The success of these changes will ultimately rely on local people accepting development in their back yards and the government could become the architect of its own demise if its drive to empower local communities pulls the rug from under its pro-growth agenda,” said John Brooks, planning director at property firm DTZ. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Wednesday 23 March 2011 9:52 pm Tags: NULL Reforms cut £350m of red tape on firms last_img read more

Andrés Zafra, Colombian rugby star

first_img Introducing Andrés Zafra, Colombian rugby starTeam-mates at Agen suggest that Andrés Zafra goes quietly about his business, but in the lock’s hometown of Cúcuta, right on the Colombia-Venezuela border, people tend to be a little more vociferous.“Every region of Colombia is different, kind of similar to England or France, in the way they speak, their habits,” Zafra, 24, begins. “People from Cúcuta are known for speaking quite loudly! But on the whole, everyone’s very nice and the region, in North Santander, is quite well known for having very pretty women…“It’s a little bit different there, the economy depends a lot on Venezuela and merchandise from Venezuela. A lot of people go into Venezuela and buy things a bit cheaper and then come back and sell them in Colombia. So it’s a bit more multicultural, obviously being right on the border.“There is some violence there but the main characteristic is it’s very hot and in ten minutes, you can walk into Venezuela. Life’s a little bit cheaper than in Bogotá or Medellín, or some of the biggest cities.”We don’t have time to discuss the fuel-smuggling economy of the region as Zafra peels off to make another team session, but what shines through is his own drive to grind. He is, after all, a trailblazer; a Colombian in a major professional league. He says of his attitude: “In Colombia you have to work if you want to have a good life. That’s what you have to do and so since I was very young, my parents taught me to work very hard. In France I’ve had to do the same, so it’s natural for me. I like working. If you work hard, you get paid and I enjoy it, so that’s how I am.”Related: From the French Foreign Legion to the Top 14, meet Tavite VeredamuAs a Colombian in one of Europe’s elite competitions, playing in France’s Top 14, Zafra is a role model. But before you get to the significance of that, you need to know how he got to France in the first place.An only child, the forward was a footballer first – he did not pick up a rugby ball until he was 15 and imagined he was Messi, not McCaw. Even today, if he gets a chance to scramble around after a soccer ball, he leaps at it.But as a teenager an acquaintance persistently asked Zafra (now 6ft 6in) to give the oval ball a go. On the fourth invitation, Zafra relented and he loved it. The coaches coveted his frame, his approach, and he was soon standing out.At Universidad Francisco de Paula Santander, he did two years of an electromagnetic engineering degree and played for the university club before a unique opportunity presented itself. With the national age-grades, Zafra was given the chance to play in Peru, Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina and even made his senior Test debut as a teenager. But he would push further into foreign territory.Crashing in: Zafra scores against Stade Francais (Getty Images)On his initial move to Europe, Zafra explains: “It came about through a foundation called Rugby French Flair, who develop social rugby in countries where it doesn’t really exist.

Then a few months later they got back in touch and gave me the chance to come to France with a tourist passport, for three months to play in Fédérale 3. A member of the association was a coach at the Givors club.“I stayed with him and he helped me a lot. He taught me French and obviously coached as well. I played three months for them, and then got an espoirs contract at Lyon. I spent two years with Lyon on an espoirs contract but at the same time I was doing a (course) on ‘maintenance of industrial equipment’.”He went on to join Agen in 2018. So how was it, deciding to make your life in France?“It was a challenge for me,” an upbeat Zafra replies. “I said that if I take the espoirs contract, I really want to make a go of it. My family were very proud. They were a bit sad because I’m an only child, but they’re very proud, very happy for me. I really wanted to see if I could make a career of it.On the paddock: Zafra at training (pic courtesy of Agen)“They haven’t been able to come over (to France) yet – they were meant to come over this year, but obviously with Covid that’s not been possible. But every summer we have three to five weeks off so usually I go back then.”Related: Colombia women and others face 2021 Rugby World Cup qualifying processA smile briefly dances across Zafra’s face when asked if he’s famous in Colombia. That would be a stretch, but rugby fans know him and he is gladdened to be the Colombian pioneer making the first forays into the upper reaches of the game. He does not necessarily feel pressure to represent a whole country and its rugby abroad, but he is motivated by the idea of showing ambitious compatriots what is possible.He explains that rugby is not common in Colombian schools, but there is a thicket of clubs through certain regions. So while in Agen, his current club, is the only show in town, in major cities in Colombia, there are several join-up options for the amateur enthusiast.What’s more, if thing’s improve, when the professional Superliga Americana de Rugby finally gets going, a team from Medellín is slated to play some part (though it is suggested in some reports that they will be underfunded compared to others and will play a much smaller role in the league).Carrying hard: Against Racing 92 (Getty Images)The lock admits that he does miss his family back in Colombia, but while Covid is peaking there his family have kept sheltered and safe. It is a relief.You can understand the low-level ache one feels when far from home. There is no implication that this sense of distance has powered his other life choices, but Zafra recently earnt his private pilot’s licence and he plans to take to the skies when his rugby career comes to a halt.Whether that is in Europe or in South America he does not say. He will want to soar with Agen first, regardless.last_img read more

How parents could revolutionize education and boost results

first_img The Anatomy of Fear By Debbie Pushor, Professor in the Department of Curriculum Studies, University of Saskatchewan and first published on theconversation.com.Repeated efforts to improve public school education across Canada — curricular enhancements, increased accountability, intensified literacy and numeracy initiatives — are failing to improve student achievement.In the province of Saskatchewan, student achievement results have flatlined and only 43.2 percent of Indigenous students are graduating on time.Saskatchewan’s results are not atypical. In her analysis of Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) results, Man-Wai Chu, assistant professor of education at the University of Calgary, said Canadian students have shown no improvements in science, mathematics or reading over the past decade.So what can we do differently? We can engage parents — in ways that enable students to do better, like school more and stay in school longer.Five decades of research evidence attest to the benefit of parent engagement. The educational and moral imperative is clear: to shift the existing student achievement trajectory, educators must intentionally and systematically use parents’ untapped knowledge to enhance student learning.As educator and family-engagement expert, Dr. Steven Constantino said in his book Engage every Family, “If we as educators could successfully teach all children by ourselves, then it seems to me we would have already done so.”Walking alongside childrenDuring more than 20 years of research into parent engagement, I have come to understand it as a philosophy and a pedagogy of “walking alongside.”This is both a belief system about parents and their meaningful and authentic voice in their children’s schooling and education and a way of enacting those beliefs in practice.Parent engagement in schools can deepen relationships as well as enhancing learning. (Shutterstock)When parents are seen to be holders of knowledge, as capable and as possessing gifts and strengths, then this can be leveraged alongside teacher knowledge to enrich programming.Engaging parents entails assuming a new worldview in schools — in which parents are seen to be central to the work of the school, not separate or apart from it.Elementary math binsA former graduate student of mine, Kirsten Kobylak, is now a Grade 1 teacher at Willowgrove School in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. As part of my research on the impact of graduate teacher education, she shared with me how she wanted to engage parents in their math theme, “Math is Everywhere.”In an email home to parents, she explained how important language and culture are to children’s learning. She posed the question, “Where does math live in your culture?” and asked parents to share such things as game ideas, artifacts with patterns, number lines in different languages and more.As items came in, the children created math bins — patterning, fact families, number lines, problem-solving.Parents came in and taught games and shared materials, comparing versions of items from one country to another, simultaneously sharing culture, language, history and family stories.Through this parent engagement, children learned and strengthened math skills such as skip counting, memory, estimation, addition, greater than, less than.They also deepened their relationships with one another, their knowledge of diversity and sense of social cohesion.‘We are all Treaty people’Jesse Reis, another former graduate student, is now a high school teacher in Warman, Sask. He shared with me the example of a daily email he sent to the parents of students in each of his classes.In the email he included a concept the students and he had discussed that day, something interesting that arose, and something parents could chat with their son or daughter about that evening at home.For example, in one email, Jesse shared with parents of students in his Social Studies class a statement they had explored that day: “We are all Treaty people.” He noted that while some students saw themselves as “Treaty people,” others did not. He invited parents to discuss with their teen what stance they took and why.The daily email took Jesse less than five minutes to send per class, but gave him potential contact with every parent every day. Parents were able to engage in meaningful conversations with their children about curricular concepts in the normal course of their day — and to add their voice and knowledge to their son or daughter’s teaching and learning.Parents are a vast and untapped resource of knowledge and expertise.Parents were always invited to respond to Jesse’s email as well, sharing with him their conversations with their child and thus bringing home learning back into the classroom. Parents asked questions and offered to participate in the unfolding curriculum in other ways (sharing knowledge, stories, artifacts or suggesting potential resources and experiences).What we see in these examples is that parent engagement can happen on the school landscape or off of it, and with all ages of students.Critical to parent engagement is that it draws on parent knowledge, is connected to teaching and learning, honours a parent’s hopes and dreams for their child, enables a parent to remain in the role of parent, is authentic and meaningful, promotes shared decision-making, is strength-based and ensures everyone benefits from the engagement — children, parents, and teacher.The possibilities of parent engagement in education are endless when these critical attributes are embraced by teachers and lived out in ways that are contextual and culturally responsive — honouring students, parents, families and communities.A gentle revolutionTo shift from the current worldview in education, one which reflects schools as a domain exclusive to educators and students, to a new worldview where schools are using parent knowledge in teaching and learning will take a gentle revolution.Notice the word “love” embedded in revolution? By working together, with mutual respect, care and concern for one another, educators at all levels of the system and parents can work together — to revolutionize schooling.We need to establish “parent engagement offices” in ministries of education, develop core teacher education courses on parent engagement, require parent engagement coursework for teacher certification, establish school district positions for parent engagement consultants, structure parent universities and establish parent mentor programs.The results of such a gentle revolution — creating an integral place and voice for parents in their children’s teaching and learning — will positively impact the trajectory of student achievement and other educational outcomes.
