LSE in print

Who's afraid of the big bad spaghetti monster?
The Independent, 11/02/2014, p.5, Jamie Merrill
…during her time at the university she had seen "religious sensibilities trumping all other rights with no space for argument, challenge or reasoned debate". The row comes soon after the London School of Economics apologised to two students from a humanist society for forcing them to cover up T-shirts featuring pictures from a satirical comic strip entitled Jesus and Mo.

What's the point of school?

BBC (Web), 11/02/2014, Unattributed
Britain's top public schools trade on their reputation for moulding self-confident and resilient individuals as much as exam results. And with good reason. Last October, an LSE report, asking What Predicts a Successful Life, noted, "The most powerful childhood predictor of adult life-satisfaction is the child's emotional health. Next comes the child's conduct.

Garrick Hileman, from the London School of Economics, who researches alternative currencies, said it was too early to tell how serious this was for Bitcoin users.

Liam Byrne: 'government is poisoning roots of higher education'
guardian.co.uk (Web), 10/02/2014, Liam Byrne
Unfettered, unplanned, uncontrolled access to the student loan system now means students at St Patrick's International College (yes, the one with a designation suspended by BIS in November) now draws down more funding for teaching than the London School of Economics.
