The Guardian view on universities: test, trace and teach | Editorial
Date: Mon, 28 Sep 2020 17:42:45 GMT
From https:

Terms have barely begun and already students are locked down. They, and their lecturers, deserve better

That a second wave of coronavirus infections would cause further illness and death, and disrupt social and economic life, was predictable and predicted. In the UK, and other European countries including France and Spain, that second wave arrived sooner than expected. But while the timing was uncertain, it was widely known that the start of the new academic year at thousands of UK schools, and more than 130 universities and degree-awarding colleges, would bring new risks. Large numbers of children and young adults, along with teachers and other staff, have begun to mix with each other after many months spent (mostly) at home and in small family units.

So it is hugely disappointing that robust and tailored testing and tracing arrangements for schools and universities are still not in place, except where a handful of institutions (including two of the wealthiest in the country: Eton and Cambridge) have done this themselves. Having rightly decided that reopening schools in September should be their top priority, and also reached the more questionable conclusion that students should take up higher-education places as planned, it was incumbent upon ministers to make these settings as safe as possible. It is difficult to understand how they and their officials, in Scotland as well as Westminster, failed to plan more effectively for the chaotic situation that is now unfolding, with students bombarded with mixed messages after outbreaks at universities including Manchester Metropolitan and Glasgow.

    When comfort reading won't cut it: books to restore hope in humanity

    From Manas Search for Meaning to a celebration of life in the face of death, Cathy Rentzenbrink picks the books that confirm her faith in peopl

    The most hopeful thing about books is that they exist. Is it not a miracle to look at a shelf and see the vast range of human experience laid out before us? How remarkable that someone picked up a quill or a typewriter or a laptop and set about distilling their thoughts and ideas into such a perfect delivery mechanism. Every first page functions as the wardrobe door that will open up and show me a new Narnia.

    There are periods when Iam not up to the journey, when hope is too much to ask for and I am only fit for rereading Georgette Heyer in the bath or cowering under the covers with PG Wodehouse or Nancy Mitford on audio. But the comfort reading does comfort, and then I am ready to re-engage, to explore, to look for something new.
