To my mind this is yet another case of the nanny state and a symptom of abrogation of parental responsibility. It would appear that schools have plenty of time to provide road safety lessons, citizenship lessons, equal opportunity awareness etc. Schools are clearly doing so well at teaching literacy and numeracy that there must be huge room in the curriculum for this clap trap. Is this necessary? What should would you include in these classes?
