Chercheurs : l’emploi scientifique progresse en France

Par Elsa Doladille. L’emploi scientifique en France progresse régulièrement en France depuis le début des années 2000, selon l’édition 2014 du rapport « L’état de l’emploi scientifique en France« , publié en début de semaine par le ministre de l’Education nationale, de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche.
Ainsi, la population de l’emploi scientifique (regroupant « l’ensemble des personnes travaillant directement sur des projets de recherche et de développement) a augmenté de 22 % entre 2001 et 2011, atteignant en cette dernière année 402 300 équivalents temps plein (ETP). Les chercheurs constituent l’essentiel de ces effectifs (62 %), leur nombre augmentant en moyenne de 3,4 % par an depuis le début des années 2000. Voir l'article...

Same Performance, Better Grades

By . Academic achievement hasn't improved much, so why are college-goers getting higher GPAs than ever before?
It’s raining As in America’s higher education system, and not necessarily because students are particularly smart. In fact, many of them probably don’t deserve the high marks they’re getting. They have grade inflation to thank. More...

In search for students, US universities put emphasis on personality

By Douglas Belkin. Gabby Toro Rosa was a strong student in high school but she was lousy at standardised tests, killing her chances at some colleges. Then she heard that DePaul University here was willing to accept a series of short essays in lieu of test scores.

Liberty, equality, fraternity in the wake of Charlie Hebdo

By Ian Coller. Beyond the tourist fantasy of the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower, France today is a fabulously colourful mixture of Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, atheists. This is the situation all over Europe. Yet many Europeans are deeply uneasy with this diversity.
The names of Charlie Hebdo victims reveal the diversity hidden by the Je suis Charlie hashtag: cartoonists and writers Charb, Cabu, Wolinski; psychoanalyst Elsa Cayat; proofreader Mustapha Ourrad; policemen Franck Brinsolaro and Ahmed Merabet; two students killed in a kosher supermarket, Yoav Hattab and Yohan Cohen.
Yet media and government often still refer to Muslims as “them”: tolerated foreigners, immigrants graciously accorded rights by the state. And Muslims often respond by considering themselves unwanted outsiders, even enemies.
Until World War II, many believed that Jews could not be French. That lie was at the heart of the Dreyfus Affair that tore the country in two. Under the Nazi occupation, millions of Jews were arrested across Europe and sent to their deaths.
Since the 1980s, France has come to terms with the ugly truth about its role in those deportations. When it comes to Islam, however, many Europeans still suffer from historical amnesia. Read more...

Will White House Free Community College Plan Put Students To Work?

By . The Obama administration is proposing to make community college free for as many as 9 million students nationwide, with a plan modeled on a new program in Tennessee launched by the state’s Republican governor.
The White House says the policy would save students about $3,800 a year on average. But the viability of such a proposal hinges on the question that many U.S. community colleges are struggling with, as the New York Times reported: Even if you get students in the door, can you get them to graduate -- and with degrees that lead to good jobs?
