Education, Education, Education! - Lying Labour Cnuts!

#1
Just been discussing education with my 11 year old and she said they weren't allowed to read any of the Harry Potter novels at school because they were too violent. I asked what they had learnt about the Romans, Vikings, WWI and WWII.

Total sum of fek all apparently.

Indeed her teacher told her straight... they are not allowed to teach them about the true horrors of war because the Labour Government won't allow it. All they were allowed to teach them about WWII was that during that time... some children were evacuated to safer places.

FFS... good job I took the time with both my kids to explain much more

Here's a pic of my daughter last year.

I remember taking her brother to the same spot when he was only 6 and he said "I hate Germans". I then took him to the German cemetery nearby.

The thing that's really getting up my nostrils is the complete and utter mamby pambying about by this Labour bunch of wet w@nkers... barely a day goes by now without me finding out something else about these watered down Trotsky Tw@ts that makes my blood boil.

BB, I don't think you'll find many people disagreeing with any of that. What grips my grunions is that I'm beginning to loathe this bloody country now, and that's largely thanks to the aforementioned Trotskyite filth in charge.

If Zanu NL get in at the next election, then we are truly beyond any hope.

I work in a school and I'm also a school governor. The amount of new policies, directives, initiatives and other assorted cr@p this government sends out to schools is of biblical proportions. By the time the Headteacher, and teachers have sorted it all out I'm surprised there's any time left for teaching.

Can't the RAF have a slight ND over no 10?

Oops sorry we were aiming at AFG

Just a thought..

That's why I educate my kids at home...

And that is why I will never be a teacher. And I tried it. By god I tried. 2 years training in and I now understand EXACTLY what is meant by MCM Div (check link).

My kids school went off to Ypres for a visit, not a bad show for a "progressive" school with a Labour council. They did fuck up though by not taking a wreath despite going out there at the start of November.

I agree in full, but as long as people do not blame the teachers, my wife is one and has been for many years, she pi55es herself at that advert on tv "those who can ,teach" it's crap, there is no area for individual teaching style anymore, no room for fervour and inspiration. Just guidelines and things you have to meet, fcuk the kids its just statistics.
Most of the teachers that I know hate the way they have become slaves to the government, rather than working with. People are being encouraged into starting teaching, good, yes we need teachers but what are they going to be taught? We are softly slipping into a Brave New World (apologies Mr Huxley)

All and all it's just another brick in the wall.............

She has all my sympathy mate. Must be completely depressing having to address kids with... sorry we're not allowed to teach you about that... go ask your parents.

Imagine saying that to kids with Mr and Mrs Chav as parents.

"Education education education" has gone the same way as "Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime" ... it's all slogans and soundbites that mean the square root of fcuk all now.

My Mum retired from teaching a few years ago, she really enjoyed her job but noted that there was a decline in "Education" since the end of the 90's. A massive difference was the amount of mentaly unstable kids being foustered onto the school system. Labour has pushed the "enclusion" theory which has ment most of the special needs schools/builds have been sold off for flats. The increase in "Chucky's"* in the class room means that the teachers spend most of their time dealing with disruptions and not teaching.
The simple solution is to sift through the schools and take out all the nut job pupils and send them to special schools or if they're criminals, borstals. It worked in the past.

Lucky for me I was always encouraged to open a book and read or go off to a museum. It's a two way street, parents must educate their kids as well as the schools.

*Chucky = Child who looks normal but is mental and evil.

Aye LVH

Absolutely... parenting is about educating too. Both my kids are well educated, the 11 yr old is particularly bright, she reads books way beyond her years and has a remarkable memory (once seen never forgotten). She is able to take in just about any kind of information and deal with it. She also recognises that in this last year of her junior school, those kids are who are advanced are not being challenged... but those kids who are behind are being focussed on. There is nothing in Labour's education, education, education system for intelligent kids.

My missus has been banging on about potentially moving location to get my daughter into a decent primary catchment area. I've put her right on a couple of points - the main one being that her education is mostly OUR responsibility.

Sky-fairy help anyone who thinks it's just the job of the school, or that mistakes the school makes can't be put right in no short order by parents.

Just thought I should make myself perfectly clear on this issue. (not to anyone in particular) just generalising.

We (my family) are very lucky, we live in an area with excellent schools, brilliant teachers and the vast majority of local people are quality. My only gripe is with the bullsh1t restrictions being imposed by the Labour Gov. When I went to school, if a teacher was teaching a particular subject and I found myself a bit flummoxed... I asked the teacher for details... the teacher explained and assisted my understanding. They most certainly did not expound the bullsh1t Labour policy on the restrictions of educating children with something like - I'm not allowed to teach the facts.... but here's the Gov policy section by sub-section.

It's things like this that make me really hate this bunch of Labour cnuts.

If it didn't happen under Zanu Liarbore then it didn't happen.

BanjoBill - You will need to watch out that she does not under achive if she is bored in lesson, I know I did. My parents ended up setting me targets at home. I'm no brain box but I did find school very boring except when the classes where streamlined. A lesson being disrupted by a Chucky all the time gets very boring very quickly.

I agree with the parental responsibility thing completely as well. When I was three and went off the primary school, I could already read without my index finger (provided the words weren't to long), and could write after a fasion. It is important to note that for children at age three, particularly boys the biggest hurdle for writing isn't the mental ability, it is fine motor control skills. These develop slower in boys as evolution chose boys who developped strength and stamina over dexterity.

The reason boys "fall behind" from the word go is that they are not physically capable of writing as well as girl, and hence more often than not don't get the praise they need. They start to feel written off at the age of 3 and 4.

Anyway back on rant. I could read and write before I went to school. Yet in my first year as a trainee teacher I had a bottom set year 8 (12-13) class of about a douzen pupils. Of those 3 or 4 were effectively completely illiterate, and only 2-3 of the rest were of passable literacy or above. Learning difficulties DO exist. With the right support well motivated children can turn them into a functional advantage as they fight to succeed. But does anyone care to claim that out of a year group of 200ish I got ALL the kids with literacy related learning difficulties and they made up 5% of the year? Evidence against this: I had to review the schools SEN (special educational needs) register for planning my lessons. There were douzens of kids on the register. Some had physical disabilities and illnesses, some had emotional or psycologican problems caused by abuse or neglect. But the vast majority had literacy problems

Evidence presented so I will get to my point (at last). How can approx 5-10% of a school year group get through 6 years of primary school and 1 year of high school and not have reasonable literacy? There has been a systematic failing in primary schools for this to happen, but as I said earlier I could read better than the majority of the class at age 3 BEFORE I went to school.

Problem is, LVH, is that those who have only been educated under ZANU Liarbore are now starting to breed. How on earth are they going to teach their children anything when they themselves know nothing?

Over the Hill, you have a good point. Education does not stop when you leave the gates of the school for the last time. Hopefully these youngsters will have the brains to continue to explore knowledge, been given encouragement by their Mum's and Dad's. If not we are fecked, cos the national cariculum is the diet coke of education.
