1. Five steps to better schools on First Nations reserves - December 23
(John Richards and Michael Mendelson in the National Post)

Five steps to better schools on First Nations reserves
http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2013/12/23/richards-mendelson-five-steps-to-better-schools-on-first-nations-reserves/
By John Richards and Michael Mendelson
December 23
Among the most contentious pieces of legislation for the present sitting of Parliament is a First Nations Education Act. It defines for reserve schools the equivalent of a provincial schools act.
(...)
Last month, Shawn Atleo, National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) wrote an open letter to the Minister. In a delicate balancing act, he restated the almost unanimous view of First Nations chiefs that Ottawa’s current draft Education Act is unacceptable, but his critique also provided a possible roadmap towards negotiation.

What began in 2011 as a joint AFN/Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs panel on the seriously inadequate state of reserve schools is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to realize reform. The window is open; neither side must slam it shut. After Atleo’s letter, it is now up to the federal government to respond.

In his open letter, Atleo set out five conditions for an acceptable Education Act. These conditions are:
1. First Nations control of education;
2. Assurance of stable and adequate funding;
3. Recognition of the importance of First Nations language and culture;
4. “Jointly determined” oversight of First Nations education rather than unilateral federal oversight; and
5. Ongoing meaningful engagement between First Nations and Ottawa on education matters.

There is nothing in these five conditions that Minister Valcourt cannot accept — although there would be hard bargaining to work out the specifics, particularly with respect to funding and oversight.
(...)
The ball is now in Minister Valcourt’s court. He should respond quickly with a statement that these five conditions are an acceptable basis on which to initiate negotiations with the AFN. He should call on the AFN to establish a negotiating team to sit down with the minister’s team and begin the hard work of turning these five conditions into a First Nations Education Act that can work in the 21st century.

Four big recommendations for repairing the tears in our social fabric.

The Big Four ways we can advance social cohesion in Canada:
1. Mandatory voting.
2. A proportional representation electoral system.
3. A guarantee of basic income.
4. Protections for the Precariat (workers in precarious employment)

Comment (by Gilles):
Hey, StatCan --- if the certificates are available free of charge and they're already in electronic format, why not just bloody well upload them to your site rather than forcing anyone interested in obtaining a certificate to self-identify. Kinda intimidating, no?

6. [United States] Inequality for Dummies - December 22
(New York Times)

Inequality for Dummies
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/23/opinion/inequality-for-dummies.html
By Bill Keller
December 22, 2013
(...) economic inequality is manifestly real, growing and dangerous. The gulf between the penthouse and the projects is obscenely wide. Obama cited some of the startling numbers: The top 10 percent of Americans used to take in a third of the national income. Now they gobble up half. The typical corporate C.E.O. used to make 30 times as much as the average worker. Now the boss makes 270 times as much as the minion.
(...)
The alarming thing is not inequality per se, but immobility. It’s not just that we have too many poor people, but that they are stranded in poverty with long odds against getting out. The rich (and their children) stay rich, the poor (and their children) stay poor. (...) A stratified society in which the bottom and top are mostly locked in place is not just morally offensive; it is unstable. Recessions are more frequent in such countries.

Research Tip

Google Alerts : A New Year's gift to you from
the Canadian Social Research Links Guy
(and Google)
December 27, 2013

By Gilles:

From time to time, someone asks me where I find all of the information that populates the weekly Canadian Social Research Newsletter and the related website, Canadian Social Research Links.

For the most part, I don't find information --- it finds me, thanks to a nifty little tool that you'll find in the Google arsenal.
It's called Google Alerts, and you'll find it here:
http://www.google.com/alerts
(You need a Google GMail address to make this work. The service also offers a "Feed" option.)

Enter a search word or string (e.g., "Alberta, poverty OR welfare -animal -child", without the quote marks)
[The "-animal" and "-child" will guarantee that you won't get any results or alerts for animal welfare or child welfare.]

I set it up so I receive an alert whenever something relevant appears online (vs once per day or per week).
You can create alerts for any subject, whether for work or just to keep up with a specific topic that interests you.
I set up alerts for "poverty OR welfare -animal -child" for every Canadian province and territory.

Play with Google Alerts - you can't break it, you can delete any alert anytime, and your personal info isn't compromised!

(I also subscribe to newsletters, Listservs and email alerts from NGOs, government departments and other organizations that offer this option. And yes, my mailbox does fill up quickly...)
