I've just heard that at a school whose CCF I was once associated, the head of careers has been ordered that in a presentation on careers to Y11 students (16 year-olds) he is not to mention the armed forces and especially not the army, as it is not deemed suitable, and girls don't want to hear about it. I'm getting the Outrage out of the garage and hanging up the furry dice about now, and I'm wondering whether censoring careers advice in this way is legal anymore? Certainly advocating one course of education over another isn't. Opinions on this fiendish plot to misguide youngsters from our noble profession welcome. Unfortunately I can't reveal too much about the school, otherwise they'll find me out and I'll be persona non grata for a while, and really they need some decent staff for their CCF.
