Killexams : RSA Administrator thinking - BingNews Search results Killexams : RSA Administrator thinking - BingNews Killexams : OPINION: It’s time to expand our thinking about what works in education reform

For decades, education reform around the world has been dominated by the rhetoric that we should use experimental research to figure out “what works.”

If we can just find the most effective solutions using science, the thinking goes, then the best policies can and should be widely used.

For example, the U.S. Department of Education’s What Works Clearinghouse looks for solutions in education through systematic reviews of research and evidence. The World Bank identifies the gaps between practice and policy, aiming to help countries set efficient goals and priorities in education.

Science-backed evidence is indeed one core pillar of improving education, but persistent and growing educational failures in the U.S. and globally tell us it is not enough.

What makes an education system “good” is as much a moral and cultural question as a technical one. And we need more attention to the political and social influences that shape reform. Policies are largely made and enforced through forces that are separate from their technical merits.

Without understanding the values and the political and social influences that underpin reform, our efforts will continue to fall short.

One key step in transforming education systems is understanding why policies are adopted. Our research, using the World Education Reform Database that we created — the most comprehensive international database of education reforms currently available — examined more than 10,000 reforms from 183 countries.  

We found that countries undertake reforms for the following reasons:

  • To gain political power. Political parties and interest groups use education reform as a tool to gain power; countries with greater political competition are more likely to undertake education reform.
  • Because they have the resources to do so. Countries with higher levels of GDP per capita are more likely to pursue reform.
  • Due to bureaucratic rituals. Countries are more likely to undertake new education reforms if they previously engaged in reform. In part, this reflects bureaucratic self-perpetuation, and it may also reflect a cyclical or faddish process yielding waves of reform.
  • In response to global norms. Reforms in education spread because of peer influence and the globalization of cultural beliefs asserting that education is a right and that sustainable development emerges from schooling. To meet the ambitious vision of providing equitable access to education for all, governments mimic each other and follow recommendations set out at the international level (by, for example, the World Conference for Education for All and the UN Transforming Education Summit).

If reformers fail to consider these realities, even the most effective, scientific interventions will fail.

We must also examine the assumptions that underpin reforms. 

Often what are assumed to be “best practices” are exported without a thorough assessment of context. For example, a flood of tech-based interventions such as One Laptop Per Child arrived in developing countries in the 1990s and 2000s. Yet without regular electricity, teachers with basic computer skills or repair and maintenance services, such programs failed to live up to their lofty goals.

Rigorous experimental and quasi-experimental research designs cannot tell us if a successful intervention will work the same way in a new setting, or about the underlying values it prioritizes (e.g., representing a particular social group or focusing on a narrow educational purpose).

Related: New book advocates using pandemic lessons to reinvent education

We must remember that all reforms are value-laden: Historically, when we lionize a standardized set of measures and outcomes as representing educational quality, many perspectives are excluded; the voices of marginalized groups are especially silenced, creating further alienation and inequality. For example, the critics of standardized testing argue that it reproduces bias and racial inequality.

Specifically, given the importance of context and values in schooling, we should be skeptical of the celebration of “scaling up” as the holy grail of education reform — especially when it is extended globally.

Here is what we think strengthening education systems requires:

  • Explicit and transparent discussion of the assumptions and goals underlying reforms. All education reforms should start out start by stating their view about what schooling should achieve and how this vision should be attained. The policymaking process should be clear about these assumptions and the values they prioritize, and seek compromises across diverse perspectives.
  • Treating scale as a questionable good, not an automatic goal. Science can reveal policies that work, but there is no silver bullet or single answer — what works in one time and place and for one community may not be right for another. Ask what may be lost by aggressive scaling and seek to mitigate exclusion.

Research using state-of-the art, scientific methods that captures cause-and-effect relationships plays an important role in identifying solutions. But our reforms will fail if we assume that science will find answers that can translate into scalable solutions that will work for everyone. The pursuit of one “best” policy too often contributes to marginalization and deepening inequality.

We need equal attention to why education policies spread, and to the values underpinning the goals we set and how we aim to achieve them.

Wed, 05 Oct 2022 00:13:00 -0500 en-US text/html Killexams : The importance of dialectical thinking

Today, “thinking” has become a necessary skill in the job market. But it has been split into creative thinking, critical thinking, design thinking, analytical thinking, logical thinking, strategic thinking, and holistic thinking. These are then further pigeonholed into higher-order thinking skills (HOTs) and lower-order thinking skills (LOTs). Not to forget Edward de Bono’s classification of lateral thinking and vertical thinking. All of which only intensifies one’s confusion instead of providing clarification.

While “thinking” is a highly desired skill, it eludes many because it is highly demanding until one is habituated. Then there is the inundation by print and social media and the fact that thinkers are often misunderstood and condemned.

Vital two

To engage learners in the cognitive process, we need to consider models and texts. Of the former, two have proven to be impactful: Hegelian dialectical thinking and Bono’s Six Thinking Hats. Dialectical thinking, although traced back to the Socratic method, is attributed to Hegel, the 19th century German philosopher who advocated seeking true meaning in two apparently contradictory positions. Instead of extremes such as “right” or “wrong”, he postulated moving away from “either-or” to “both-and”. In other words, right is not totally correct, and wrong is not totally wrong. An interesting metaphor illustrative of this model is “having an elephant in the room with two blindfolded people on its opposite ends”.

Bono’s Six Thinking Hats ideally comprises a group of six, each wearing a different hat. But it can also involve one individual wearing six hats one after another. Each hat has a colour that symbolises a different kind of thinking: white for facts, red for emotions, black for negatives, yellow for positives, green for new ideas and blue for summarising and decision-making. This helps learners tackle an issue from multiple perspectives and overcome the usual mono-dimensional thinking.

The problem confronting teachers is integrating this skill into prescribed textbooks, which may often be unyielding. This then compels them to browse through a high volume of texts available online in a variety of formats but how many are willing to do this?


The current Russia-Ukraine war is an apt context to apply dialectical thinking. While Russian president Vladimir Putin defends the war as an attempt to retrieve lost land and Russian pride; Ukraine and the west blame it on his autocratic behaviour and warmongering. Where does the truth lie? Achieving a dialectical balance is vital. The Six Thinking Hats would bring into focus aspects such as facts on both sides (white); the emotional turmoil of civilians and soldiers (red); sufferings of both nations and the world at large (black); positives if any for the two countries and globally (yellow); probable solutions to the problem (green); a standpoint based on critical engagement with the ideas put forth (blue).

We live in a tumultuous world of issues at local, national, regional and global levels. Tapping into them will be effortless, but narrowing them down to thought-provoking material for the classroom will be a challenge. Will our teachers think out of the box?

Killexams : RSA holders can now use contributions for mortgage – PenCom

Pension contributors in active employment can now pay for equity contribution for mortgage from the balance of their Retirement Savings Accounts (RSA).

PenCom, in a statement by its spokesman, Mr Abdulkadir Dahiru, in Lagos on Friday, said the policy specified in the new guidelines of the National Pension Commission (PenCom) would be implemented with immediate effect.

The commission said the approval was in line with Section 89 (2) of the Pension Reform Act 2014 (PRA 2014), which allowed RSA holders to use a portion of their RSA balance toward payment of equity for residential mortgage.

The statement said the guidelines covered pension contributors in active employment, either as a salaried employee or as a self-employed persons.

“Interested RSA holders (applicants) must have an Offer Letter for the property duly signed by the property owner and Checked by the Mortgage Lender.

“The RSA of the applicant shall have both employer and employee’s mandatory contributions for a cumulative minimum period of 60 months, equivalent to five years.

“A contributor under the Micro Pension Plan (MPP) is also eligible, provided he or she has made contributions for at least 60 months (five years) prior to the date of his or her application,” the statement said.

According to the commission, RSA holders that have less than three years to retirement are not eligible.

The statement said married couples, who were RSA holders, were eligible to make a joint application, subject to individually satisfying the eligibility requirements.

The commission said RSA holders, who registered before July 1, 2019, must have their records updated through the RSA data recapture.

The statement said application for equity contribution for residential mortgage should be forwarded in person and not by proxy.

The commission said the maximum amount to be withdrawn shall be 25 per cent of the total mandatory RSA balance as at the date of application, irrespective of the value of equity contribution required by the mortgage lender.

“Where 25 per cent of a contributor’s RSA balance is not sufficient for payment as equity contribution, RSA holders may utilise the contingency portion of their voluntary contributions (if any),” the statement said.

It added that to qualify as a mortgage lender for this purpose, the company must be licensed by the Central Bank of Nigeria, comply with the Contributory Pension Scheme and have valid Pension Clearance Certificate.

The statement said: “the commission shall publish names of the eligible mortgage lenders on its website.

“The commission, hereby, invites interested RSA holders to contact their PFAs for more information and guidance. (NAN)

Killexams : Contest for RSA president brings back bad memories

John Kirk-Anderson/Stuff

The Christchurch Memorial RSA headquarters on Armagh St was sold its Trenches Restaurant Bar and Events business failed.

The ghosts of the accurate past will hang over a critical election at the annual general meeting of the Christchurch Memorial Returned and Services Association (Christchurch RSA) this weekend.

Current president Dennis Mardle, who is also the association’s treasurer, is standing again and is being challenged by current executive member and former president Jim Lilley. Former executive member Craig Cormack is standing for vice-president.

Lilley and Cormack were on the RSA executive when it got into trouble in about 2018/19 after its Trenches bar and restaurant in Armagh St got into strife.

Christchurch RSA Holdings, which ran the hospitality wing of the RSA, went into liquidation in January 2020 owing about $2 million.

Alden Williams/Stuff

Then Christchurch Memorial RSA president Jim Lilley at the Bridge of Remembrance in 2020.

A financial report prepared by Mardle for the AGM suggests Lilley and Cormack, who were directors of Christchurch RSA Holdings when it was liquidated, should not be elected to influential positions due to their financial inexperience.

* Temporary reprieve for 103-year-old war memorial
* Commemorative wall of plaques taken down by Christchurch RSA
* Christchurch RSA sells central city building for $3.4 million to cover debts

The $5.8m Trenches bar, restaurant and function centre opened in 2015 and closed four years later.

Lilley said he had nothing to be ashamed of and was the first executive member who started asking questions about the failing business.

Joseph Johnson/Stuff

Jim Lilley, second from left, and Craig Cormack (fourth from left) join a party to pay their respects at the Christchurch war memorial on ANZAC Day 2017.

“I can hold my head up high. I worked my arse off and stayed on to clean up the mess.”

The report by Mardle, who became president in 2020, says the accounts were in a “mess” before the 2019/20 year and “staff were having nightmares” about them.

The association was now in a much better position, with about $720,000 in term deposit and $57,000 in the bank. The RSA’s Museum and Support Trust had $1.2m on term deposit, and the trust board had $100,000 in the bank.

“It is my greatest regret that in my time as treasurer I was unable to keep the building in the hands of the association,” he said in the report.

“However, when we look back at the pandemic and the consequences that has had for hospitality businesses in Christchurch, we can be thankful we dodged what could have been an even worse situation.”

Mardle recommended appointing “external people” to bring necessary skills to the association.

“Younger, business savvy, former service men and women” should be brought in to help construct an association for the future, he said in the report.

“It would be foolhardy in the extreme to rely on an executive committee made up of those who had lacked the necessary skills to turn the association around from the position it was in when I came on board in 2019, to try and take this association into the future.

“It was Einstein who said, ‘Insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results’.”

Killexams : ‘Visual Thinking’ Review: Do You See What I’m Saying?

Killexams : RSA won’t repair the damage Storm Arwen did last November

My house suffered substantial damage in Storm Arwen last November and it has been an ongoing battle with my insurer, RSA, to get it repaired. The programme of repairs has still not been approved and damage from water leaks is worsening.
LG, Hexham, Northumberland

You first contacted me in May. By then, you’d spent six months with masonry dropping from a damaged gable, an unstable rear wall, destroyed guttering, damaged window frames and water leaking through electric light fittings from a hole in the roof. A telecoms cable wrenched adrift couldn’t be reattached because of the unsafe brickwork, cutting off the broadband and landline. You, meanwhile, paid for broken windows to be reglazed and waited in vain for a promised refund.

The problem appears to be a familiar one: miscommunication between the companies involved – in this case, the claims management firm appointed by RSA, and the subcontracted surveyors and builders. The claims management firm objected to the builder’s requirement of scaffolding and a skip, without which the works couldn’t proceed. Over the ensuing months you were forced to chase each company, spending hours waiting for calls to be answered or returned.

I contacted RSA on 23 May. Within a day you were told the works had been approved. Scaffolding went up three weeks later, and the £664 you’d spent on replacing the glazing refunded. Repairs were finally completed this month, 10 months after your claim, and you have agreed a compensation payment with RSA.

RSA says: “Our handling of this claim has fallen below the standards our customers expect and those we set ourselves. We are taking steps to learn from the mistakes.”

Another RSA customer, RE of Newmarket, Suffolk and her family, have spent two months without proper running water because of delays replacing a leaking mains pipe under the kitchen. “RSA was alerted in mid July and, since then, we have been turning off our supply at the meter in the street to prevent damage to our house,” she writes. “We only put the water on for brief periods to shower or fill up jugs of drinking water.”

As in LG’s case, it seems that communication failures are to blame. Action spurted forth once a headline loomed, of course. RE was called the same day I made contact, a date for remedial works was offered, and the family was promised a daily disturbance allowance for the time the water supply was compromised.

RSA reached again for its stock response: “The handling of this claim by ourselves and our suppliers has fallen below the high standards we set ourselves and what our customers rightly expect of us. We will be taking steps to learn from the mistakes made.”

Reviews online suggest that this will be a steep learning curve. A new law come into effect in 2017 requiring insurers to settle claims within a “reasonable time”, or the policyholder can sue for damages. However, the Financial Ombudsman is the obvious first step, provided you’ve allowed the insurer eight weeks to respond to a complaint, or received a letter of deadlock from it.

Killexams : Sloan – “Magical Thinking”

Sloan are releasing a new album, Steady, in just about a month’s time. The Canadian band has shared “Spend The Day” and “Scratch The Surface” from it so far, and today they’re back with another single, the punchy “Magical Thinking.

“This song lampoons the idea of anyone who thinks that their feelings trump science,” the band’s Chris Murphy said. “Yes, I think being alive is a miracle and that we should all be grateful but people’s beliefs ultimately mean nothing and whatever those beliefs are they shouldn’t become legislation or be tax exempt and I shouldn’t have to respect them. And I don’t.” Check it out below.

Killexams : RSA says GDPR limited the level of road crash data it could publish, as questions raised in Dáil

THE ROAD SAFETY Authority has only published provisional data on road traffic collisions for the past five years due to GDPR concerns.

The issue was raised in a written Dáil question last month by Labour leader Ivana Bacik.

She asked if Transport Minister Eamon Ryan’s attention has been “drawn to the fact that the Road Safety Authority has not published any data on road traffic collisions since 2016”.

She then asked when up-to-date data would be made available.

In response, Minister of State at the Department of Transport Hildegarde Naughton said she was advised that “in light of GDPR requirements, the RSA is currently reviewing their road traffic collision data sharing policies and procedures”.

Minister Naughton added that “individual record-level data cannot be shared until this review is concluded over the coming months”.

One this review is completed, Minister Naughton said the “RSA expect to implement revised policies and procedures to permit GDPR compliant access to relevant RTC data”.

She then pointed to “provisional aggregated data” that the RSA has been publishing in the meantime.

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, was adopted in 2016 and came into force on 25 May, 2018.

GDPR’s primary aim is to enhance people’s control and rights to their personal data.

According to the RSA’s research department, all data from 2018 onwards is “provisional and subject to change”.

In a statement to The Journal, a spokesperson for the RSA confirmed that it is in the process of reviewing its road traffic collision data sharing policies and procedures.

The spokesperson explained that this is being done “in light of the fact that the data must be treated as personal data in order to comply with GDPR demands”.

They added: “Record-level RTC data cannot be shared until this review is complete but we expect this to be finalised in the coming months.”

“At that point, the RSA will have new policies and procedures in place for access to RTC information and data,” said the spokesperson, who also highlighted the RSA’s provisional aggregated data.

“These new policies and procedures will be underpinned by a variety of legislative instruments, as well as specific measures designed to share data in a GDPR compliant manner.”
