Teachers Threaten To Boycott Primary School Tests Over ‘Pressure’ Concerns
Seems to me that the teachers are largely at fault for not defusing the stress. In my youth we took standardized tests. The sole preparations were some dummy questions the afternoon before so we knew how to mark the sheets properly. We were then told to go home and get a good night's sleep. On the morning just before the test was handed out, we were told: do you best, but rember it is only a test.      Furthermore, if only 47% meet the standard reading, writing and math levels for their age group, they are not getting quality teaching. For 47% of 11-year-olds to be below 11-year-old level is shocking. Is the proposed boycott really about the students or about teachers covering up their own failings?

Britain Set To Lose EU Banking And Medicine Agencies ‘Within Weeks’
What? You mean just because a country no longer supports and participates in a treaty organization, that is supposed to be a reason to move operations to a country where its treaty members and support are? How is that fair?       Shouldn't the EU be forced to move MORE of their institutions to the UK in recognition to the damage we have done to ourselves with Brexit?  Shouldn't the EU be required to subsidize any and all members who leave them?
