Modernist architecture: Roots (1920-1929)

Cities in the western world were expanding. Louis Sullivan, one of the most prominent members of the 'Chicago School' of architects, coined the phrase "form follows function", a mantra for Modernists ever since.

And in the early twentieth century, technological advances were rapidly changing western society. Machines, in the form of cars, telephones, and ocean liners captured the public imagination, and emphasised the positive force that technology could play in people's lives.

Small dip in teenage dropout rate hailed

The Department for Education stressed there had been five consecutive quarters where the 16-24 age group rate was lower than it had been the year before.

Dispersione scolastica record, e il governo taglia i fondi

L'Europa ci bacchetta, la politica giura di volere combattere la piaga degli studenti che abbandonano precocemente gli studi ma il dato italiano resta uno dei maggiori di tutta l'Europa a 28 nazioni. E i fondi stanziati dalla contrattazione integrativa per arginare il fenomeno che, stando agli economisti di tutto il mondo, blocca lo sviluppo economico e rallenta l'uscita dalla crisi si sono talmente assottigliati da non incidere quasi più.

Da un lato i numeri sugli early school leavers forniti dalla banca dati Eurostat - i giovani 18/24enni che non hanno ancora conseguito il titolo di studi superiori, e per questa ragione vengono annoverati tra i dispersi - e dall'altro le cifre stanziate quest'anno dal ministero dell'Istruzione per "le scuole collocate in aree a rischio, con forte processo immigratorio e contro la dispersione scolastica".
