Party conference speaking support the Party's education policies. She slated a culture of excuses of low standards are see bureaucracy and the chaos of classrooms because it keeps poor children poor.

Shakespeare plays in three years that told a culture of kindness which includes helping each other and their families and offering adults there seats on buses in the tube.

Yes we take a slightly different way of doing things. God behavior got teaching methods got the ethos, and so it's been a bit of A. Bite to persuade people that this is an option that's worth trying may now with our outstanding off stead, and with our grizold Jesus last year. It seems pretty obvious that this is a a valid way of doing things. But when we started, it was far from being valid. People thought we were a bit crazy frankly to to be doing what we were doing. There is a prevailing wind in education. Still blows against you, Catherine sued. You still are people. They're trying to trip you up all the time. If there are any sort of dropping of standards, I know, that will be disciplined, standards are central to your ethos, but but there's a lot of people not on your side. Yeah, that's true although I have to say many of them have owned by the wayside over the years and not I do feel in a way. Many of them have just given up because we kept on going and it is hard to. To argue against the school that is giving city children chances that they wouldn't otherwise have had. That's teaching them so well. They're you know they really are just defying all the expectations, and also we get over six hundred businesses every year. Mainly Teachers Knoll is teachers. Say My goodness. They're so well behaved. They're so curious there so independently minded. They're so nice, you know.

Patrick's Coming Out Story
"Come out to hear from Patrick who's now a successful Mike artist but he got relentlessly bullied for being gay or growing up in Northern Ireland. I identify as male And I I have an interesting journey with my gender I think because I started doing drag or Soy's drag when I was about fifteen stain kind of progressed. I moved to Manchester when I was eighteen on. I pretty much was wearing full. Face to makeup wakes clothes everything every single day. I think I am used to chester. Oh God I can do this. I'm free to to wear as much as I want. And where did you come from that? You can wear what you want. I grew up in Northern Ireland so I could and I did wanted by think I was always trying to be little bit. Respectful of my parents particularly my mom because she was a little bit uncomfortable at the time about me wearing makeup and bought me wearing weeks and and looking of the Yes. I moved to Manchester and it all sort of exploded e kind of all sort of mixed together. It wasn't really drag. I've never really done to the performances. I tried failed dressing. Dressing up was dressing up and still is for me now and I kind of stopped doing it for a very long time as my career is make posits kicked off. I didn't really have any time. I think there's a good three or four years where I didn't put any makeup on at all but now I'm at a point where I wouldn't even know what it's called I. I'm a man who is gay who likes to wear addresses woman. Sometimes but I don't see myself as a drag queen but juicy self is somewhere on the sort of gender fluid spectrum may be I guess so by just don't feel like home fits with me if you turn because everyone likes putting terms things. These days I would say gender fluid would be appropriate up you would prefer gender. Fluid suspended male. I don't really care. That's the thing that when people these conversations like I think about a lot but I don't ever think about all. This is the term that identify with the most. I'm just I'm just. I'm Patrick and some does I like to lady some days. I looked like a man. Will you go out shopping or go out and make you might just as woman? No I'm on? I think that's probably why the the line is in a sense. I'm why wouldn't see myself as being gender fluid for me? Gender fluidity is someone who I probably would have been more like eight nine years ago when I would go out house with makeup on and with silly outfits on in fact my what am I. University lecturer actually brought me into her office. University and asked me should be cool. You anything different remain is that do we give you a different name? Which would like different pronoun or anything? I thought no and I thought what she questions to ask my. I'm just wearing these clothes. I didn't understand why. Why did he was different? But looking back then I was definitely much more gender fluid whereas these days it's more just address up that's quite progressive really to serve. She was a lovely woman. What's your pronouns? So it's the right way about. Isn't it to actually ask the pers- yeah definitely definitely? I really appreciate. That looking back was a lovely thing of Helen. Do well done Helen so looking back. Can you remember the first time that you may be questioned your sexuality then to know why I think I always questioned bisexuality? Once I knew what sexuality was I knew I didn't fit into the normal. I remember having imaginary friends as really young boy and I always wanted them to be boys. I always wanted to be called Tom. Which is really weird because if my flatmate listen to this my flatmates called so I don't want him to think I have a thing for the boy called Tom. I always want to hug them. I always wanted them to be close. I remember it being because they were boys. We have family video of me when I was a kid. Really really young and our next door neighbor. Child I'm running around child's Charles like calling out for him because I was probably obsessed with and then I think I grew up and I realized what sexuality was. It was like. This is always something that I've thought I've always been attracted to boys and also the messages we getting about people that were male light boys of your school in. Belfast was yes I went to school. It's an all boys grammar. School in Belfast. Very up at south one of these kind of really wheaties for school. Everything around may was telling me that everything that I was into everything I was interested was wrong messages. Where you're hearing. I think proved very young age. I was always some other was like the victim of bullying in a sense. A growing up in Northern Ireland with a British accent With Army family and Camp. So you you were bullied for being English Bison Primary School it was always English and getting a degree because of my accents and then when I went to secondary school turned into A. You're you're gay. Boy Gameboy busted. Dumbo buster bums. The walls was always a catchphrase. That was said when people woods when I would walk down there the corridor. And how old were you I mean throughout secondary school. So from twelve onwards funny because I came out and primary school do yes. It is well. This is an early one. I asked boy to be my boyfriend in Palm. He's GonNa last year of Primary School. I come into how all that would have. Been eleven eleven. The education system is a little bit different Nolan. I think he leave a year or something later. I can't really remember that I recalled. I was very good friends with him and I found him. I won't spend my boyfriend so I asked him. I remember what he said. I gotcha I gave them a note. I remember I remember sort of slipping him tonight. What he boyfriend but I recall what happened after that however I do recall giving him a phone call after school to talk to him because we would every night and his mom picks up the phone and I said speech Cowan please. Is this Patrick. So yes said well. I've heard about this. Fancying thing the what Jamaican and she said. I need to stop disgusting for how this is coming from light. This boy's mum and this is probably one of the youngest coming has gazed. I've heard you were ten or eleven. You try to get a boyfriend boyfriend then. The mother intervene jess and that was kind of that was that because I I remember being on the phone. Remember sitting on my mom's bad being on the phone shutting down the phone. That may be thinking. Oh this is wrong because I didn't really think anything wrong. I guess at the time apartments quite just wants to boyfriend but he obviously thought something wrong with it because he went straight out his mother. I so God what happened with the friendship. I mean that was the end of primary school more or less. Oh I can't quite recall whether or not we stayed friends. We probably did stay friends but when I went to different school you know secondary school so I didn't speak to him again and then there was one boy from my primary school went to grammar school with mate and I remember saying. Don't tell anyone like about the stuff that was kind of kept hush hush and then he's not telling people but don't but not until like our second year of secondary school and then everything's coming out and then I saw his playing to little bit. Once I came to terms with my sexuality and I was afraid of. I think I've sort of jumped straight into it in the sense that I had a boyfriend. I think had my first boyfriend when I was fourteen. Thirteen fourteen and he lived around the corner from my house. So we get the school bus with each other so you did you ever have any girlfriends it right into the boys in primary school. I have so many girlfriends yoga. Yeah in fact. I really love laser device. Full circle moment recently. That my my my main girlfriend primary school I have makeup for recently mostly. Nice but they would just like playing Casey chases and primary school and yeah. It's a secondary school and I had my first boyfriend when I was about fourteen and the dramas about cost because I actually joined the cadet force and my my secondary school And he was one of the one of the sergeants and he was older he must have been bus eighteen when I was about fourteen to. Everybody obviously found out about what was that reaction. Then if they like previously recalling Ubembe boy and abusing you because you are and then they found that you actually had a boyfriend in school and the school in the catas- when I think about those that are times I think buckle news stories. You know. It wasn't all that bad. I got grief everybody. Everybody has something to say. I was ostracized from everybody apart from my very very close knit friends. But I didn't ever quite lucky in a sense I never have enough. I didn't get that much abuse a on me although to be ostracized by the majority of your school colleagues. It's got to be very alienating. Very lonely place to be as well. I think actually is probably the most difficult people some of the teachers to accept or not so. I remember one of my house shooter. Whoever he was obviously being be is to shave my eyebrows off and draw them on again. Of course course I getting a lot of people about and he looks at you. You're not really helping yourself are you. And that was his way of dealing with them. Just GonNa Suck my teeth now just very much that I think about. There's so many stories from my school The head of pastoral care at my school he told my best friend. My best friend was crazy like a piece of artwork and included a picture of the two of us in makeup and to be pulled birth bus into into the school officer. Talk about the fact that we harangue makeup in this picture and he's holding my friend Anton. The Envy's children turned out to be. He gave that he would assign them not the head of Pastoral Care School. Well he's in the wrong job. I know awful. Man Said no support tool then from anyone in terms of authority figures. Yeah but I think very much. My my school wasn't a great place to be gay and with what was this. The nineties noughties The northeast expansively. Brezler not a Northern Ireland so back in in the way I mean. They've only just got marriage. Equality abortion right. Yeah exactly Hallelujah. Thank God but they're so backward. I think of my Johnny was coming out with a little bit easier than of my friends because my family are English. Not to say the Ron. Lots of very supportive very open Irish people because of course there are but I guess my family went as religious especially my dad and I didn't really have thought that traumatic past of of living in Northern Ireland. So what stage did you come out to your parents. Bearing in mind the trying to get boyfriend at the age of ten in progress and then got one by fourteen. I'm guessing he came out quite early to them you well. I came out to my Mama earlier. My Dad moved away to Luxembourg when I was about twelve. I think he moved off work. So this basically he. He wasn't really on the on the scene so I think I was about sixteen came onto him by counts. My Mum probably about twelve thirteen and it was a conversation again. Sat on the same bad. I phoned Calgary from. I couldn't say the words I remember trying to say. I think I'm gay and not being able to say gay and saying I I tell you but I caught sight yet and Saying oh I don't know and then going through listen different questions than eventually. We got to that. She's like Oh you gay. Yes yes let's sets and okay right. I think you're a bit young. So maybe we'll have this conversation when you're older okay. So then every now and then it was a diesel thinking guy and that was. That was pretty much for my mom. I mean my mom was always quite supportive. It's my my older sister is guy I was. My sister had the real hard time coming out so I could. So she came out. I know she came out later. I came up so see is five years older than me. Okay I think she was about nineteen twenty when she came out and it was traumatic. My mom would always say my gay people. I might like gay man. I just can't stand spins. And that was her catchphrase and she's very very much the complete opposite of that now. My sister's marriage has a little boy. My mom loves my sister. I think that's just Hearn prejudice her and

Mia Ives-Rublee: Talk to us, not at us.
"What was the moment when you decided that activism. What's for you? You know count. I wouldn't say there's a specific moment. I got to see sort of how. My parents really advocated for me when I was A and public schools and you know unfortunately when I was in public school that was right around when the Americans with disabilities act came online and was signed and schools sort of scrambling to you know. Update things Even though the idea had been out there the Rehab Act All of those were out there but you know schools were still sort of scrambling to meet the needs and they're still scrambling to meet the needs of disabled students across the country. And you know I got to see sort of how. My parents spent a lot of time. Just advocating for my needs and then eventually When I was in high school seeing them advocate for other folks needs and I think that helped show me the importance of finding your voice and being very aware of how systems work and how to use systems to gain access to gain equality across the board. And so you know. I really started to use that when I was in college because I suddenly found out that you know the idea doesn't cover you in college and you become the student without a lot of rights and a lot of without a lot of the combinations that you sort of presumptively thought that you had one year in and secondary school and so you know. I think that was sort of a time that is starting to find my voice and went to the University of Illinois and You know began working on immigration issues around. Lgbtq issues around campus rape In sexual soul issues and specifically around A mascot that I believed was racist Chief Lineup Wick Spent some time. advocating As a student activists there And we were eventually able to get rid of it so you know. I think there are different points in time that I really began finding my voice and you know I worked as a vocational rehabilitation counselor here in Chapel Hill Carbonaro and got to really know a lot of the details on how systems can function and then not function for for people on the ground and you know got really frustrated there and decided to leave that job because I was getting burnt out and I'm seeing a lot of my clients coming back. You know without jobs without a lot of hope and just really struggling day-to-day to try and find a job and maintain job. And so you know. Each part of my life had have really given me a lot of understanding of of systems and helped me learn to empathize with a lot of different issues. And you know eventually you know it. All seemed to come to a head win. This current administration came into power. And you know gotten sort of dovan headlong into the women's March and by that point I was like you know. I've been to protest before been to these events where they don't think of disabled people they don't think of women color they don't think of a lot of things and that tends to lead us out and leave us vulnerable. And that's why really decided to to just like in you know headlong and to activism after that. Oh I love your Surrey. That's so
World Class Beatboxer vs AI with Harry Yeff, Artist in Research at Nokia Bell Labs
"Would I fell in love with using my voice to compose and write quite young age age of fourteen and it was for a few reasons like I was actually in a really musically rich environment in terms of early electric Techno grime which has shown that will kind of exploding in London. When I was growing up and it was the ability to instantly Ri- obviously anyone that speaks uses. The voice sings the very established. This idea of singing Medea or doing some light. Percussion just to write. I immediately for the fact that I could not just do some light. Mcconnell sing I could start to internalize music theory. I could start writing beats and white phoned ideas using just my voice. I became absolutely obsessed with the instances. I just didn't have to wait to get to my instruments enough to wait to get to a computer. I just thought it's a composed on right in a way that no other tool or instrumentation really automate and it just continued to grow from there and the goal was to break boundaries and Jonathan had ownership over something new. Did you take lessons? Are you just were self taught you watch videos like? How does somebody even learn how to be box? No it was very strange serendipitous story. It was pretty youtube. Which is crazy. And I seen some like elements of sound making before because it's so important to just like establish people cool so of composition with voice. They can go to be boxing. Sound making and voice our oldest humanity itself. It's not a new thing like to compose and write with. Sounds with your voice has been a a music making for as long as music as existed and it was the experimentation and seeing vocalist Kinda go beyond traditional techniques. I found it so fascinating but in terms of like applying it to Electric Music because I wasn't really a hip hop head. It was more about the experimental of music making. That was something that just happened almost by chance and it came very naturally to me so no lessons no guidance. No help just kind of an obsessive desire to make music instantly and not feel like I have to rely on anyone else. That was the main thing I didn't like feeling like I had to go through my secondary school to access to my drums. And I had to kind of go to friends. Houses to use like Music Quinn and light laptops. Because it's something that I personally didn't have access to myself. And it was the impatience the impulsiveness to always creates or he's made is what made me so focused and I just love story from the very beginning the obsessive nece and the joy it brought me it started with just myself but then people started to react around me in produces tied to kind of say like how you making the sound. How you doing the sound design and people wanting to dance as well and that was one of the key moments to me is. My friends would dance to me boxing. Yet from there it's just continued to grow spiral out of control in quite an exciting way. Yes I love that. I think it's great when people are self taught and you're based on your own creativity and one of the things I know you like to say is that our voices are most precious tool and that we must give the world of voice. What does that mean to you outside of my own musical compositions? I believe there's a lot of communicative thinking and pushing of how we actually connect with each other. That directly connects to our voice. The voice is synonymous with the human condition. It's such a fundamental to- used in our day today again. If we leave music behind there is an issue that many people don't feel like they have a voice. Many people do not feel like that. Is THEY HUNT? And they also feel like the rounds of their expression is established. Like this sort like a glass ceiling on everyone and I really believe that to experiment with the voice to push off always as far as we can is to push the mind as far as we can is to push human condition as far as we kind of is the push consciousness as far as we come. I think that there's a universally accessible expressive nece. That is there but his massively untapped and all of the what I do outside of music on installation lectures working with technology is just the fundamental expiration to trying make people see the voice in the new line and the aim is to not make them saying perform we'll make music is to literally make them express and feel alive and voice can do to express and the Catharsis of expression through the voice. It wakes people up and that goes way beyond arts music. It's it's humanity so it sounds like a huge mission but I sat on a three full years ago to explore the narratives around voice the innovation around voice Beyond music making and it's so insane the benefits you see innovation. You see in new ideas around. The Voice of how universally accessible is something that everybody has they. Don't push it to the Max so I WANNA change global perspective on voice and in doing that hopefully give the world voice make people feel Hud make them express and make them shaft simple idea on a huge scale. Yes we've spoke the first sign a few weeks ago and you said that. I got excited except like off. That is so much of what I personally believe. It's a personal goal that I have and I'm curious how you know you're working to kind of do this. You had done something at a wired magazine event where you had showed you had made some sound and then on an image it kind of created these like sculpture like art pieces which is very cool and you told the story about how a young girl did it and she got so excited to kind of see her voice in a visual perspective and she got louder and excited to kind of share her voice and I was like. Oh I love this story in the important summit so yeah I love free to talk about how. You're kind of working to do this on a larger scale before we get into the technology piece because I do think voices more than just waste technology. It is about connecting us. Making people feel heard so. Yeah I'd love for you to talk more about how you're doing that on a large scale. I think does really make sense to kind of speak about that story. And because that was the beginning of this like the scope where I've obviously crepe directed and been involved with a number of different tech based creative projects and that project you mentioned that it was a project called C. Sounds and is was in collaboration with the mill. Who's incredible post production company in New York and Creative Director Back Rama? Alan and we had a conversation at South by South West. Where this idea that every voice is precious. Every voice is like a fingerprint. And it's like a Red Joel and that time. The voice is like a red jewel started to such in conversations more and more so we assist them which allowed people to digitally sculpt with voices precious metals and structures. So think of it almost like a broach or very read natural structure. You can build that with your voice missing different tones and textures and it will create this Completely unique structure and they're absolutely stunning. Obviously it's hard to communicate over Poku The project manifest installation. We invite the public to comand. Use the peace and this young girl that you mentioned it completely. Change my approach to augmentation working with technology but it was a puff. It's example of how the voice can lead to a flowering of oneself can lead to an opening of expressive interests and capacity. That can literally change the way you move the way you feel about yourself your confidence because she was extremely shy. I cannot say she was like a tiny little quantity attached to a bothers leg when she walked up to the peace of the microphone. She said these tiny utterances debt and she saw those sounds become something that looked physical on the wool these kind of growing crystal structures and when she saw that she made that connection and she started to shout and scream eventually law and again. She augmented with this tool which encouraged her to expressing tests have voice and she flowered and that was the beginning and this was clean case study of how experimentation an untraditional ways of exploring ourselves can lead to an introspection which she's so

don't five so I'm told you say there's a lot of stuff that you try thank you probably shouldn't say publicly frankly if you do comedy professionally that's just the way your brain works yeah yeah that's the case for me anyway I think you know as a professional stand up comedian I'm trying to think of jokes all the time a cut tried to give jokes about anything I read anything you tell me I'm I know express the joke but in my head I'm like oh is this how how would I make a joke about this and especially if you told me you should never joke about these topics in my head I might well I'm already try to figure out that you know because it's like a challenge to me it's like a puzzle to be solved that hit miss process sometime absolutely this art form and sometimes you get wrong a lot of time you get wrong probably but as a stout comic I believe you can talk about any topic but if you're gonna if you're gonna pull the dragon then you better be spot on with what you're saying I think that's the best explanation I've ever heard thank you for I I'm not clear in my mind you've been married three times but not really right I've been married three times to the same woman yes we had three wedding ceremonies what was she trying to change your mind and you were giving their the chairman or in Spanish but not always it's more that when your families are spread out across the globe as ours on Chinese weddings are a lot for the parents to kind of brag and so as Pavao duty to then we make it easier for them to brag so her family's in Australia okay we'll go we'll have one waiting there for them my family's in Malaysia we'll go Malaysian have one for that that's not the most important question I've asked but does that mean you get gift certificates to crate and barrel in three different continents no I specifically said no gifts but if you must give a gift give cash money cash money only that actually that's that is a Chinese family yes it is and it's awesome if you want save the environment cash doesn't create waste no wrapping paper you know I'm not lifting because I was telling people in the wedding by my wife maybe tone it down because I was getting too aggressive with it but I was ten people like you know what having a when in Malaysia and in Australia we're going back to America so number one I don't wanna log a blender all the way back to America second of all the complex a different okay so it's not gonna work anyway I'm gonna have to buy the converter all that all that crap first of all I'm very specific about what I want okay so the blender you're gonna get me is probably not gonna be the best blend so don't even try I know what I want just give cash money or don't give anything at all

An Interview With Nobel Economics Prize-Winner Michael Kremer
"Economics as a field it can have the reputation of being kind of abstract cerebral yes that's true if matty lots of CIGNA's you know complicated financial instruments ivory tower stuff Michael Creamer our newly minted Nobel laureate says he here's this from people all the time people have a view of economic says only about the stock market talks next. That's the question that you get when you sit makes people on airplanes there like is the stock market GonNa go up hopefully classic questions going to the I I also much place on that one now is a Nobel prize so you really want to know if he thinks. I got this doctor from a Nobel Prize winner and the response he might give to somebody who asks him for stomach that look development economics is something different branches mixed focuses on improving conditions in developing countries so Michael's research is looked at different ways to improve health care education agriculture social conditions all these different things in those developing countries Michael got started in this kind of economics when he was visiting a friend who was teaching in Kenya his friend was working for a nonprofit and had been put in charge of a bunch of local schools and they were trying to figure out how to best run these schools and where to invest their very limited resources we weren't sure uh what the best approach was they had several different ideas that they were interested in China and as we were talking I suggested that perhaps they could try some approaches in some schools and other approaches and other schools and they did that systematically they could learn what was what was working best and evaluate the impact of what they're doing much isn't Medical trial much as in a medical trial real world trials are used in many of the sciences but applying them in economics was groundbreaking in some of the most noted work of Michael Kramer and his colleagues they looked at where to best allocate resources impoverished schools in Kenya so for example would students benefit more from free textbooks or from free meals it turned out neither of those things actually made a huge impact for the students what did make a huge impact for the students another study uncovered a pretty unexpected answer to that hyphen free access to de worming medication. Hookworm whipper roundworm worms that actually used to be in the southern United States. take the medication to treat worms was quite cheap but it did still cost some money and there were a lot of parents who are still not getting it for their kids what made a huge difference was when kids were given free access to de worming medication Michael says the impact it had on their education was extraordinary we found that topic for much more like quitting school absence from school what by one quarter reflect when they had access to the medicine Michael and his colleagues followed the students for years all the way through school and into the workforce and they found that free access to de worming medication just kept paying off this was a while ago Alga young adults we see that they're actually earning more and consuming more and the girls are more likely to onto secondary school so huge impact relative to the really tiny costs lose medicines cost really pennies per does investing in De worming medication as it turned out had a much bigger impact on the educations professional lives of kids than textbooks or school meals and economic mixed figured that out the solution was not obvious it emerged after a series of rigorous experiments that were systematically trying different approaches until they found the most active efficient solution Michael and his colleagues presented that information to the Kenyan government you want to help kids and keep them in school put your money here in best in de worming medication and it will affect major change it will move the needle they were excited about it and they decided they wanted to launch an national program and then Indians state governments heard heard about it and then the national government of India introduced a similar program so now Aw Th Indian program is reaching more than one hundred million children every year and I think I remember reading that The program actually did a pain for itself through increased tax revenue because people did become more productive when they were healthier is that is that right that's exactly right recent follow up work we've looked at the economic impact of us now that students at the time of original de worming are now in the labor force and see the people are earning more Ah The free just do the calculations turns out of the extra tax revenue alone would have been more than enough to pay the cost of the program. It's estimated that the work of Michael Creamer in his fellow laureates this year has changed the lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world and Michael Says he's very glad to see that a more hands on kind of economics is being acknowledged invalidated in such an important way we're trying to do work that is very rigorous that is using the Ah Tours of of economics but that is also engaged with practical problems it's easy to see the problems of global poverty and to think that there are intractable that we can't make a difference but actually there's been huge progress there will be more progress as economics is applied to different problems in the developing world he thinks he can help find simple practical solutions that can actually make a big difference. Michael says he is incredibly excited to see economics being used this way and of course peace excited about winning the Nobel yeah maybe we'll even figure out how to celebrate it properly congratulations thank you so much and I think you should upgrade to regular coke for at least a week paid lip balm yeah there you go there now we're talking we're talking
3 economists who study poverty win Nobel Prize
"A group of three researchers have won the Nobel prize is in economics for their scientific approach to solving global poverty esther do flow Albacete Bonnici and Micheal creamer are known as the random does for the work with randomized control trials it's a research technique that's previously only been used in the hard sciences Micheal Creamer from Harvard University joins us now on a skype line Michael congratulations thank you so much and this doesn't happen very often how are you feeling today it was completely surprised for Let's take the time out to talk about your work comes thirty years after you first started doing these randomized control trials in enya other was an early one with textbooks can you tell us about that Schorr I spent spent a year teaching secondary school in Kenya and this was a time when you're Kenya's progressed economic class since then but it was it was very poor them most kids did not have text books in school and one of the findings this was somewhat surprising was that when we compare it schools that receive the text books to those that didn't there was not much impact on on top scores for the majority of students the students who were initially scoring on yeah well and that's counterintuitive and that's counterintuitive because you would think that if you got more access to textbooks it would help why didn't it so I thought to my my time as a teacher in Kenya and I remembered that kids are missing a lot of school now there's malaria there's worms teachers uh-huh missing school schools taught most kids are learning in their third language they have their own language at home than their Swahili English taught in English so it's very easy for kids to fall behind the curriculum one of the findings since then they're just amazing results if you provide summary middle education so that's something that's been found in in India for example as well so in this example the randomized control was there was a group of kids who did not get textbooks and a group of kids who did get the new textbooks but as you know you you do have critics of this type of works people who say that it's not ethical to give one group something that could potentially help them or even be lifesaving and not the other group so how do you answer that question and is there an example in in your own work where you decided you needed to to stop and give the benefit to both groups you're so you're in in in typically what's happening is the working with for example nonprofit organization and they're they can't reduce the program everywhere so they face it into certain schools after one year and then after the second year they go on to another set of schools then say after the first year it's possible compare what happened in the schools where the program was introduced to the schools were at that program how yet the introduced so in that type of example all the schools eventually are getting the program of course in some cases for example the case of textbooks on it turns out that things that you thought would would work don't work on and in that case it's important that information so that new approaches can be tried if you had all the money and all of the resources in the world at your fingertips and also the a political clout to do it what would end global poverty is that even possible one of the really exciting aspects of this has been and finding a whole host of things across a range of sectors that really make a difference so for example in healthcare making simple preventive healthcare measures like mosquito nets or or de worming medicine or water treatment solution available to poor households making that available free there had been a movement to say we should charge for those things making that available for free makes a tremendous difference to access another approach is just cash transfers so Mexico and many other countries have have tried on cash transfers for for for poor households if they have their kids in school and get basic healthcare at one of the things that examined the Myron research was effective trittin children for intestinal worms uh-huh and we see that they go to school more they are more as adults on this isn't investment that's paid paid back many times over that's Micheal creamer one of three economists who just won the Nobel Prize for their work on taking a scientific approach to alleviating global poverty. Michael Thank you so much. Congratulations on the win thank you
NGO brings visibility to millions of children out of school worldwide
"This is Matt Wells at UN news an estimated two hundred sixty million children not receiving an education and the crisis hampering their access to vital life skills and the jobs market leaders at the nonprofit their world have committed to closing the education gap the organizations bringing visibility to the scale of the global education crisis through through an immersive installation the infant classroom a mirrored room which highlights the huge number of unfilled seats in schools across the world sites it on the main. UN Plaza in New New York the installation serves as the centerpiece of their world's latest campaign Hashtag right the wrong aiming to gain the financial support and political momentum to help children achieve she therefore potential and Gio Partners Founder Sarah Brown and President Justin Vanfleet spoke to you and uses Nutley Hutchison onstage in the G. Media his own during the German assemblies high level week well so we set up the infinity room right outside the main doors to the headquarters because we wanted to capture people going past and just make sure that education was front and center this has been a UN week where how we protect our planet has been the start to the week and and now we're moving across to talk about people on that planet and truthfully. We're not going to find a way to save upon it. If we don't find a way to educate all our children to who need to know what they need need to do to play their part so the infinity rumors you walk into it is a mirrored space that when you sit at the the children the school desks there the mirrors create literally millions of empty desks representing the two hundred and sixty million childrens. You say who don't get the chance chance to go to school and there's some sound as well right. Do you want to tell people a little bit about this. Once you walk in there you can close the door. You can create your own photographs. Create your own film mm-hmm and the space will will do all the work for you but also you can hear the sound of a classroom and hear what the sound would be if we had all those children at school learning unexcited and planning futures to justify anything to add just building on that is what happens if we don't do anything about that today in right now and that's why we thought it was so important even when climate and other issues are front and center that I see even here at the boxes for educations at the bottom because it's the foundation that really helps achieve all those. SDG's and by having the box here front and center it reminds people have not just tuned sixty million out of school today but if we don't change change course immediately in two thousand thirty actually over eight hundred million over half of the world's young people won't have the skills that they'll need tend to the workforce we productive members of society so as a wakeup wakeup call to what's actually going to be happening in twenty thirty if we don't take action great so what is what is the global education crisis exactly and how do you bring visibility into this with all these other. SDG's that are competing this week especially so the crisis is simply that you have millions of children out of school but the crisis is also what that means for them as they grow up and as Justin said you face a future where within a very short period of time half of the world's young people will not have the skills to be ready to be able to enter employment or run their own business or engage in a job that Romo might be doing an unskilled job but there's going to be plenty of scope for people with skill jobs but they have to have that learning and we're creating a bigger and bigger gap as we have children who are able to go through the secondary school and onto higher education and leaving so many millions behind and the challenges also not just for those children who are in the poorest hardest to reach parts of the world world but also this children who are displaced and we have so many more children to address in a humanitarian context where as a refugee as asylum-seeker as as a child whose family can can move several times as they move. We have to be able to be flexible and provide opportunities for them so the comp the competition with the other goals is not a competition you know. I was talking to me Muhammad this morning and she said something very wise. She's she loves the progress of any single goal all from her point of view responsible for seventeen any progress on any single goal has a positive impact on others and education arguably has the greatest impact on how we cheese every right youth is certainly at the center of the conversation these days right yes absolutely Sarah. Would you share a about the founding of the organization. What sort of inspired fired you to pursue education at this level so I didn't set out to set up a charity that was focused on the global education crisis. When we first started the charity seventeen eighteen years ago it had a different name it was focused on community health and education projects and looking at the grassroots level but what's happened. Is We've grown. We've partnered with other initiatives. Initiatives been inclusive with the way that we work working with Justin. In a leadership role. There brings a lot of skills and expertise with his team where actually you are able to work right of that top. top-down level of looking at how we unlock the political will unlock the financing on adopt commitments to education that we scroll back ten fifteen years just weren't there and the journey to making education the priority was one where whatever health project we were doing something around nutrition or something environmental you can never reach your full goal when you'd dealing with children who don't get that chance to go to school and it was just something where myself and the other like-minded people realize that if we collaborated together we creative partnerships together as an organization we could do that and that's where their world was born but there will doesn't work on its own either you know we've got partnerships with other. NGOs always with UNICEF here with the meeting with them this morning and getting a lot of new commitments for education sharing our resources and I think all of us have to do that so their world is is there to collaborate and work with others because we need government civil society. We need businesses if together going to reach these goals great that's that's what I was going to ask him aside from the infinity classroom sort of what other involvement you had with the UN Jay this week in maybe more details about those partnerships so we here we have the Business Coalition for education that we established. It's been building private sector engagement with education so they've been hosting a big event. We've campaigned for many years at their world to be able to see the creation of the new financing facility big pledging today and education wait. That's within the unison family is they're. They're scooping up massive commitment this week for education emergency so we're having busy days every day of course and you both. I believe leave returned from a trip to Greece recently right where Russia around degrees yeah. Could you share by breaking. You told us it was it was it was one of those his trips where you realize the sheer scale the challenge in both of the global level but also what it means individuals where we were there on days we had record numbers. There's of young people arriving on boats from Turkey and these refugee reception centres that were already overcrowded three or four five times the capacity no supplies even for for a place to ten nothing and they're just waiting outside and you had all of these young people and most of them young people in these camps and we were able to do is as we partnered with education not wait and the players the Dutch postcode lottery and we said we have to do something we have to right the wrongs such an injustice of what was happening there and so collectively we invested into programs with UN agencies with UNICEF and unique CR and we're delivering five thousand school places right now because those young children we went. We saw that young people were able to take out of those camps go down the road of these centers and their eyes light up. They're taking out of these places and hope and opportunity everything's right in front of them and then you know the end of the day they you have to go back and so we have to solve that crisis of the refugees being there in those conditions but also this transit center they need some type of hope and opportunity so we're not making in a plan to double the capacity immediately when over eighty percent of them service in the next few months so they all have chance of education while there and so that's that's our big our big challenge ahead wonderful where where else has their world gone and made impacts so far what we've worked a lot with refugees because we campaigned very heavily to be able to get funding through the humanitarian sector. It's not that many is that change come about so we've had a lot of work with Syrian refugees. I'm British and so for for us to see in Europe refugees coming in was a big wakeup call in two thousand fifteen to sixteen to realize how close that that came to us coming in into the Greek islands but also something where we have a responsibility these people now our neighbors and to be able to engage. We've worked a lot so one of our biggest initiatives so it was the big breakthrough was making a proposal for the double shift school system and the WF school system is very simple solution to massive influx of people needing education and a the population like Lebanon or Turkey Jordan overwhelmed by how to cater to that need generously being prepared to do so and so if the school can start earlier in the day day you gotta first shift of children coming through and then halfway through move overtook double. The number of children can come through a school building in one day which means you don't have to to spend time working out where you're going to build buildings. You can get on with working how your teachers are going to be trained to cope different language instruction making sure there's children have the opportunity and and that's worked amazing. I mean just speak to the numbers more accurately than I did but we have hundreds of thousands if not millions of children who are now in school as a result of that system that's wonderful. That's not sit and I think that's the point is we're not an organization just to run programs on the ground because there are a lot of great partners that do that already and what we're really trying to do is find out where the blockage is where the gaps who's missing out. How do we provide immediate support but then also how do we create that change and unlock the bigger amounts of funding the bigger partnerships need to happen to really deliver sliver at scale exactly what you're saying. Lebanon with this proposal partnered with the government agencies and over three hundred thousand young people went back to school last year. There were refugees in Lebanon. That otherwise wouldn't have had that opportunity before we all work together on this. It was about ten thousand immediate impact that you can have if everybody works together really put her mind to these new innovative ways of doing work. That's that's wonderful. I'm staying on the good news. You mentioned there. Were new pledges that came out this morning. Justin I I was following some of your tweets there was incredible progress that came out of the UN today. Can you share a bit about who those donors were and and what we saw the first CIANCI veterans education cannot wait so looking for funding that needs to be ready to move very very quickly whether it's an unfolding emergencies so there was a number of countries that came to the fore so we saw Norway Way Denmark who was that Germany Germany the United States made a commitment made a big commitment so all all of those commitments are there and ready and then reaching out more widely and I know that education will now look towards the expo twenty twenty coming up and talking to Dubai you buy cars and other organizations in the region about how to galvanize more countries to be able to come in on board we had even more because after the education cannot wait event we had the International Finance Facility for education which is a new proposal. We've had out there and now there's actually money coming into this thing so it's real it's real we had youth campaigners the past last two years campaigning with their world and other organizations to get this thing up and now now it's there today there were six hundred million dollars in pledges into that and because of the way it's sort but actually multiplies the money through through the Multilateral Development Banks Action Equates about two point one billion dollars. We'll be able to invest in the next generation of young people and you combine that that with the amount from education cannot wait. We're looking at two point three two point four billion dollars that was raised just today just across the street for education and that's a big deal. That's probably the most that's been raised origination and he's single day in history. I think that good news. You're going to be the place where we stop today. Thank you so much seren Justin for joining US everyone. Thank you so much for for your attendance. Thank you great
Refugee children excluded from education will never be equipped to rebuild their countries: UNHCR
"This is natalie hutchinson with u. N. news the vast majority of the world's nearly twenty six million refugees are hosted in the global south where providing education education for them is a major challenge the u._n. Refugee agency u._n._h._c._r. said on friday an interview with u._n. Newses daniel johnson the agency's sees muhammadu deion beltway. That's the deputy. Director of u._n._h._c._r.'s division of resilience and resolutions explains how a new plan is helping to provide provide not just primary but also secondary schooling to vulnerable youngsters permanent remain in issue however you also have much a bigger challenges at secondary level as well as tertiary level. How many millions are we talking about. How many refugees twenty five million in the world twenty six million really yeah. We've got about twenty five hundred six million as of last year most of them eighty four percent in <hes> refugee-hosting countries that happened to be in the global south so refugees are hosted in some of the most deprived areas of our countries and at the same time unwritten these countries in the most deprived part of discounters. The report is calling for help from governments from communities from the private sector the to sort of change the way that refugees get education. The aim is not to do it so much in camps now as in host communities. Maybe you could expand on that and explain explain how our house communities going to deal with this. We've good examples of places where government have made changes policy changes very eddie generous ones go on them wet where for example for example in djibouti for example in uganda for example in mexico for example in countries affected by venezuela situation nations but also in the middle east north africa turkey lebanon exit so we see money of this good examples but this good examples needs sustainability. What are they doing doing exactly. They are allowing refugees to access into the secondary school. The existing schools not obliging them to go on have have their own education on their own so including the refugees in today national education systems allowing them to have additional teachers additional schools were quiet but we also see a lot of development actors development partners like the world bank like bilateral donors coming in support of them so this is new income streams streams this how you're going to do it because you're an can't do it on its own and governments haven't got the resources so you're appealing as part of the global compact refugees to get a new income stream stream. What sort of money do you need to make this work. I cannot tell you about exact amount that is needed but for example you take. Uganda has a four year plan for for over three hundred eighty million u._s. dollars in the course of four years. That's educational response plan devil for both refugee children as will as affected host populations. That's the type of amount of resources that is being posted on the leadership of the government of development actress you initiate. She are on few order ngos and the u._n. Agencies coming together and joining effort into understand exactly what is required and then so that donors as well as communities and others can contribute to responding to those needs that just an example there are many examples so in the the immediate instance. If you go to somewhere like greece the greek islands. There wasn't a lot recently about the fact that thousands of refugee children are still not attending school the islands. I don't have the resources neither does athens. What's going to help them now. Because they really do need assistance immediately they do need assistance but they also policy changes so policy changes that will allow these children to have sisters <unk> but at the same time also human human as well as financial national resources he also mentioned that in lebanon there are thousands more syrian children who fled the conflict there and if these children aren't looked after and given an education we risk reaping the consequences of not looking after them. What exactly do you mean by that. It's about being excluded in countries that have hosted them. They we're already excluded and displaced because of the conflict in the country and then coming into this host countries they need the list that is needed is to provide vitamin d type of education including civic education including cohesion if the host population so that that brighter feature that we do see four for syria when times are is i think is being correctly field by people who are equipped with education two final questions to you how many ah countries and where are you focusing on initially in this new initiative for secondary and tertiary education for refugees and why is education so important for refugees for anyone we are thinking of few countries in the eastern horn of africa rwanda kenya uganda a few orders in asia like pakistan and in these countries as i was saying they are really starting point.

Talk about the issues of women in sub Saharan Africa. And somebody thinks you trust in your book, you point out that in sub Saharan Africa and other places. There are child marriages women are forced to marry it. Six seven eight years old. Why is why does that happen? Quite often a family will marry their daughter off because one, they then don't. Have to feed her. So that's less resources from their family and two. They also want to protect the families honored, and that is a cultural barrier that is horrible for girls because they then often don't go to secondary school or if they're in secondary school, they're pulled out of school. They're moved to a village often where they know. No one, it's not even close to their home. It's a horrific thing for girl, she basically becomes the property of her husband's family or her mother-in-law. So what have you tried to do to prevent some of this? The only way you can overcome cultural barriers is I you go in very sensitive ways with partners, but then the community has to commit to another area.

Villagers do it for different reasons. They believe it protects the girls honor, they believe that they if they love their daughter. They will do it, but what I have known is that when education comes in, I talked to a village leader, an elder and a group of women who used to cut their daughters and no longer do in a group of women who are the cutters who no longer do. And they said, you know, when people bring in education from outside, and they talked to us about things how people view this and other places in the world, it starts to change our mind.

Replacement anxiety: White supremacist terrorism
"Zealand has spent the weekend morning. Fifty people who killed when a white supremacist gunman. Open fire. It two mosques during Friday prayers. Dozens more still in a critical condition in hospital cabinet today. Made in principle decisions around the reform of our gun laws. Prime minister descendant spoke to journalists today after meeting with cabinet to discuss changing gun control laws. This alternate means that within ten days of this horrific act of terrorism we will have announced reforms, which will I believe make L community safer. Almost all weapons about ninety four percent of New Zealand's weapons on registered Illinois Whitehead is reporting from New Zealand for the economist makes an outlier kind of almost anywhere in the western world apart from the United States. So that means that you can kind of stockpile weapons. Brenton Tarrant had a license wasn't a prior offender. He wasn't police watch less that he was able to get a gun license and he owned semi automatic weapons. He was able to procure legally. So the question was clearly raised that he picked New Zealand naught, Australia because of the more permissive environment because it was easier for him to procure the weapons Boutros dues. Also, put a spotlight on white supremacists. As the prime minister knowledged on Friday, the attack through questions about how security agencies had failed spot a man who written extensively online about his beliefs and his intentions community and police focused on extremism of every kind give. Global indicators around five right extremism. Our intelligence community has been steeping up their investigations in this area. The individual charge with mood it head not come to the attention of the intelligence community, nor the police for extremism the man accused of the shooting a twenty eight year old named Brinton Harrison Tarrant appeared in court on Saturday. He's a stray leeann the judge route one murder charge and said Moore would likely follow. Meanwhile, people gathered across New Zealand to remember the victims. A massive outpouring public grief and sympathy. So you've had vigils of being held here and across the country. I was in Christ Church today where there was a vigil organized by some school-children secondary school children outside the larger of the two mosques that was attacked the one where most of the casualties were sustained the people. I'm speaking to just saying where the attacker had had clearly wanted to drive a wedge between the Muslim community and the white community of New Zealand. He's he's kind of achieved exactly the opposite of that before the shooting. No did people think that Australia New Zealand how to program with white supremacism yet? Look in easy Lund's. I think less people are sort of saying again, and again that they are surprise. There is some members of the Muslim community say yes on detains of Islam. Phobia and racism have been rising. But for the most part, they say, you know, what this is this is actually a very tolerant, very harmonious almost uniquely hunt. How many society, but Australia is very different. And I think that those of racism and Islam have become much more prevalent in public culture over the last two decades, the most the most obvious one is pulling Hanson. He's. A Senate to one nation, which is a populous party in Australia, and she's kind of complaining constantly about tax on western civilization about anti white racism, clearly invoking, the sort of nationalist white supremacists. Kind of language. She moved a motion in the parliament last year, which stated that it's okay to be white. There's another Senator in independent who cooled in his maiden speech in parliament for a final solution to immigration, so Nova some pretty extreme anti immigrant rhetoric in Australian politics, but there's a big difference between that and going into a mosque. Yes. It is. Indeed. But these people studying the far-right say that they believe what's happening is essentially, these fringe groups, and there's a diffuse number of kind of NIA Nasi, ethnic, nationalist, white supremacist groups in Australia, which do remain fringe up. But they have been. Legitimized to degree by this kind of discourse. And by the discourse in some of the conservative media was the next up in the police investigation and then presumably trial. So Brenton town has been charged with one count of murder. He's he's going to appear again before court in April, April the fifth where he faces where the question is. I was what's up more other charges will be brought against him because they will at theoretically, he could face fifty counts of murder because that is the death toll at the moment. Fifty other could still rise. He could also be charged with acts of terrorism clearly any of those could carry life sentences. Eleanor. Thank you. Thanks, john.

Matt stained glass is reporting on far-right extremism for the economist. More recently white supremacist, violent ideology is more matter of diffuse chat rooms on the internet and people getting interested ideas, and it's less matter of actual organized groups that can be clearly tracked by law enforcement about can you tell us a bit about the manifesto, the shoot published and also the medium it was published on. I mean on the one hand you don't want to give too much publicity to this stuff on the other hand. It's kind of hard to understand his. Nation without looking at it. I think it's exactly right that you don't want to do the terrorist job for him by repeating his manifesto. But the ideas that are in it are so central to the current white supremacist movement that you really need to understand something about them to understand why he engaged in terrorism engaged in the titled has been festival the great replacement, and that is an idea that's been kicking around since the nineteen seventies. But his gained a lot of currency read recently that immigration to Europe and to white western countries by people from non western backgrounds isn't just a matter of people immigrating for their own reasons for economic reasons, but as part of the giant plot to replace white people with people of other races. It's very panicky paranoid conspiratorial way of you in the world, and it gives the white supremacists and excuse to engage in violence because allow. Them to picture people of other races who are moving to western countries as invaders need to be stopped. I haven't read seventy four pages of the manifesto, but the bits I've have read remind me quite a lot of the manifesto Dylann roof shooter in South Carolina in twenty fifteen who shot wash oppose the mother Emmanuel church boasted, very similar ideas about whites being replaced. Yeah. There are a lot of Larry's between what the New Zealand shooter road, and what road and also under spry in Norway road, and that coherence is possibly the most troubling thing about the ideas behind this attack. There's a common playbook available now to everybody in the global white supremacist movement. And these ideas are just at hand for anybody who wants to wants an excuse to pick up a gun and engage in political violence is it possible. Say anything meaningful about how wide spread this problem is from almost from police. Point of view. I mean on the one hand presumably, the number of people who prepared to take up and shoot total strangers for some crackpot theory is relatively small, but on the other hand, this shoot seems to spend a lot of time on web forums where these kind of ideas discussed whether a lot of people the scale of violent rightwing extremism is smaller than the scandal Islam extremism, but the unpredictable nature those attacks as as you say is what's troubling? There's a terrorism expert in Germany who has comp with an idea Daniel Kohler who's come up with an idea called high of terrorism, which is the sense that there are people lurking on chat groups, and you never know which of them is suddenly going to get it into his head that he ought to stop just saying nasty things on the internet and go out and take action, unquote. Which is exactly what this played out. If you look at the chats. Were going on on a chan- this board that he was frequenting he characterized as the moment to stop talking and start doing something. And I think there's a sense among security experts that the problem with this with this current type of white supremacist terrorism. Is you can't predict who is just out there saying obnoxious nonsense on the internet, and who might eventually actually go out and do something about

Students Skip School Across Europe to Demand Climate Action
"Students in the UK are demanding that their government declare a climate emergency. Secondary school students marching in Manchester England today, they're part of a growing movement students from around the world walking out of school to demand much stronger action on climate change, thousands of young people also gathered in parliament square in London and in Liverpool. Eighteen year old Abby super Manian organiz his school student walkout. Honestly, the turnout was even greater than we expected. We only really started organizing liberal about three days ago, and obviously it's very difficult to go to essentially schools and say walk lessons. Disobey literally everything you patterns in teachers are saying because this is what is like when Houghton and we've had a absolutely fantastic reception here in the UK. Thousands of kids out across the country. And what did you do this? Why did you organize? So this whole movement started with a fifteen year old girl in Sweden. Tonsberg who basically went on strike from school and sat outside the speech parliament, and since then she's gone on to speak at the United Nations, and she's gone on to speak at the World Economic Forum in Davos where she addresses the assembled leaders in industry leaders adults. Keep saying we owe it to the young people to give them hope. But I don't want your health. I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I wanted to feel the fair I feel every day. And then I want you to act. I wanted to act as if the house was on fire. Because it is. So that's really what brought me into this. I've been talking to loads of children around my city. I honestly big really energized and enthused by the glazing commitment, the amazing enthusiasm that so many children is under fire showing for that matter. And this issue was your school supportive your school in Liverpool. What I think we find the receptionist is that teachers pilot me really supportive of us, obviously, there's a bit of classroom management. But generally speaking, the feeling from teachers on the ground some students has been really positive. I think in fact next month on fifteen March they should be school scheduled. The United States to Abbas out. So yeah, I was gonna ask you. Are you connected to young climate change activists in the United States? So being lateral organisation has connections with international we've coordinating between international organizations. We're all colonizing separately. But under the same banner, and coordinating our strikes to be on same day much momentum lead us now. I don't know if you saw this, but Prime Minister Theresa May's Downing Street officers said it's really important for young people to engage on serious issues like climate change. But don't disrupt the class schedule as a result. What's your reaction to that statement? And that is that it's not like climate change issues recognize we don't know that they exist. Gather every couple of years to talk at climate change conference, right. The problem is the conference in the United Kingdom in the United States across the Westworld on taking concrete enough snaps in order to take action on these problems us having to start from school. We don't want to strike from. So we want to go to school. We want we want our educations. But as like mentioned what what's the point getting an education if we won't have a future. Thank you. The reason I know thank you. You really aren't doing enough. What difference will these protests today really make? I mean, do you see this as a rising wave that can change the world? Yes. I mean, I personally think that this is it is absolutely amazing to see hundreds of thousands of children across the world in succession educating themselves on the issues and going on to Mark measures. I think as we strike mounted it puts more pressure on world governments to take action to make concrete proposals. Because I think they're starting to realize that young people will be silence and won't be both off with any half-measures or goody two deals that they don't really enforce you mad at adults for not leading more firmly on this. Honestly, I am my generation is going to be the fascination in human history and then tie history of mankind. That will be poorer less vegetated and have a lowest standard of like every other banal parents which. Has never happened before in the entire history.

Another house. Guard a younger husker called Mary and the opening of the Novalis very much about relationship between these two diligence, sensible but much naughty Mary and then on an uncle, have some guests come over from London who meet Belinda and think that she is the most magnificently, well, organized well behaved beaten kind of young women that they've ever seen and that particularly interested in that aspect of Bennett's Carter because back home in London, these two guests come over doctor and nanna have really way would to Amer and Dr nanna think, oh gosh, if Belinda what's come over to London to me than possibly would be transformed into the sensible young woman doctor and none of one to be. So the novel then can focus on the relationship between Amer and Belinda in London, and Belinda attempts to keep the friendship with Mary came in gone alive and order the struggles challenges arise from that. So it's Belinda story at heart. So the part of the story. Is the dislocation of Belinda Ling from Kumasi to London? Absolutely not yourself obey the other way around you travel between. Yeah, and Ghana. So tell me about something about your own experience that having grown up inland and then going over and experienced it the other way around. I think one of the things that I always was struck by when I went back on as a child in particular was how immediately I was marked out as being someone who is different. So I suppose maybe quite naively ten, twelve guys gone on family holidays to see him that I be able to kind of blend into the background because like everyone else and. That that would be in. But people before it even opened my mouth had this awareness. I had come from the UK and so they had all these expectations about what I was going to be like and how the haven so on. So I think that expectation of going home as it were, which is very much the term that my mother, my father, actually, when we talked about going, it was about going home. It wasn't really as easy and straightforward a home going as phrase suggests and this book also and we won't go into too much detail about this because I don't wanna get the story away, but it's a book about sexuality as well. Yeah, then subsequently became an out game, and so you talked about going to garner and being different because you the guy that came from London. So what's it like a gay person traveling about two got if quite tense experience in all sorts of ways. I think particularly because there's Wade silence around sexuality ways and garner. So if someone is suspected it inverted commas of being. Lots of the time it isn't discussed, sort of just kind of hedged around and kind of crates, feeding of anxiety because can constantly waiting for the moment when someone is brave enough, bold enough to mention that tabu topic, which means that you're constantly walking on eggshells which is not the issue of experiences. I think that Gonese are becoming a bit more progressive in attitude toward sexuality, but I think it's is taking a long time, and I think is to the is still very much seen as kind of western ill that has been transported to garner affliction that comes from outside.
