Thread Name: BS: The Drugging of our Children
Subject: RE: BS: The Drugging of our Children
And all day long under fluorescent lights...often trapped in classrooms with vast window space, letting in the burning sun..and many windows in schools aren't opened very much for 'health and safety' reasons ('cos they worry about the kids falling out, or throwing themselves out?)
In Sidmouth College the poor things even have to ask *permission* before they can remove their hot, synthetic, sweat-inducing blazers, or overly warm jerseys... ?????
The sooner we throw out all bloody control freaks from schools, the better.
If these sorts of things took place in offices, there'd be an outrage, but apparently, our children have to be 'trained' to be 'obedient'...
Knickers! to that loads of b*llsh*t!
The sooner we start LIKING our children, showing them respect, thought, kindness and compassion, the sooner it will start being returned by the children towards their teachers..and the sooner they will WANT to learn as much as they can, rather than being *forced* to learn things they have no interest in.
But to end up drugging kids who sometimes are simply playing up, bigtime, because they are bored rigid and fumingly angry at being controlled or treated in such an appalling way, is just beyond belief..and it shows how 'toxic', to use Dorothy's excellent word, the entire school system has become in many places.
I do however appreciate that there are some great schools out there, but it's my belief they are, sadly, very much in the minority)
