Our article about Cultural Capital and Ofsted Inspection Framework 


Last year, one of our Junior Consultant was telling us about the introduction of Cultural Capital in the Ofsted Inspection Framework:

"If the introduction of cultural capital in the assessment guidelines of Ofsted seems, at first glance, as a positive move towards less arbitrary judgment methods and towards more inclusivity in the UK education system, the consequences of such utilisation and understanding could be completely different. The initial person introducing the concept of cultural capital was Pierre Bourdieu, a famous French sociologist. However, the way Ofsted uses the concept takes a completely different path from what Bourdieu wanted to express the first time he used the term in the 1970s. "

#Onthisday



In India, December 22nd is the National Mathematics Day. India celebrate it every year in honour to the birth anniversary of amthematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan

Before he died at the age of just 32 from tuberculosis, he had already given the world around 3500 mathematical formulae that scientists have still not been able to completely prove. The main objective behind celebrating the day is to raise awareness among people about the importance of mathematics for the development of humanity.

National Mathematics Day was first observed in 2012 when former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh declared this day as National Mathematics Day on February 26, 2012, when he was visiting the Madras University in order to pay tribute to Ramanujan's achievements and celebrated his 125th birth anniversary. Since then, it is observed every year on December 22 to honour Ramanujan's work in the field of mathematics.
