Government must question its treatment of older, younger generations – It is time for federal governments to report and discuss how much money they allocate to supporting the old compared to the young, writes UBC Professor Paul Kershaw for the Toronto Star. Kershaw questions the widely held belief that the previous ten years of Conservative government has decreased federal financial support for Canadians, arguing that both federal spending and tax benefits have risen significantly for those over 60 while investment in those aged 18 to 49 has decreased substantially. The contributing pressures of rising housing costs, student debt, and the difficulty of finding a well-paid job with benefits is leaving the upcoming generation much worse off than that which came before. The only solution to this issue, Kershaw concludes, is for both Canadians and their government to take a hard, sustained look at how federal policy benefits members of different generations. Toronto Star

Women in STEM need more relief from marginalization, anxiety – More needs to be done to address the high rates of anxiety and depression among women working in STEM disciplines, writes University of Toronto Professor Jennifer Drake. She goes on to argue that women in STEM are more prone to the long-term effects of stress because entrenched stereotypes about STEM cause them to exist in a constant state of “fight or flight.” Even when women are complimented in this environment, Drake argues, the compliment almost always positions the woman as exceptional or even “freakish” for being employed in a field so heavily dominated by men. However, Drake concludes that the effects of stress and marginalization faced by women in STEM can be mitigated through mentorship and targeted intervention programs. Time

Study finds significant variation in preparedness among 2-year college students – Students who attend 2-year community colleges are less likely to earn a bachelor’s degree in six years than those who go straight into 4-year colleges, according to a new report by the National Bureau of Economic Research. However, the study found that there was significant variation in the level of preparation different 2-year colleges gave their graduates. The variations found at the community college level were so great that many institutions were found to “attract students that are as high achieving as some of the less-selective four-year colleges in the state.” The authors conclude that this variation in student preparedness requires further study because “previous research has mostly treated all two-year colleges as a homogeneous outside option for bachelor’s degree-aspiring students. » Inside Higher Ed | Report Abstract
