Quotes

"While previous research has suggested that early education is key to long term attainment, our research has shown that the free entitlement did not deliver the anticipated gains" said Dr Jo Blanden, Senior Lecturer in Economics at the University of Surrey
...The alert didn't name any potential culprit, but warned users to heed any certificate warnings, especially when browsing to www.icloud.com. "Users should never enter their Apple ID or password into a website that presents a certificate warning" Apple's alert said
"Government spending on early childhood education has almost tripled in the past ten years. It’s time to ask whether that investment is necessary and getting value for money" says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ
"Although the play was written in 1934," says Amina, "there are so many women around the world today in numerous different cultures who find themselves in similar situations; they are under tremendous pressure to 'do the right thing' and if they seemingly don't conform to what society has decided are the rules, they will find themselves marginalised, pushed out and ultimately without family or support. I feel very strongly about women's issues and stories and I'm fascinated about how society differs around the world even though there are so many common factors. I think Lorca's play is significant and I hope audiences will enjoy our contemporary take onon it."
