ABSTRACT
This section presents reports related to personnel management published in British publications in 2008. It was reported in the April issue of "The Economist" that the teachers' strike by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) members over a 2.45 percent pay offer looks like ingratitude to the government. Philosopher Simon Blackburn reported in the April 24 issue of the "Times Higher Education" that management is a modern-day myth.
