Subject: RE: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
"We have to help children and the way to do that is to make exams more rigorous.." stated by some dangerous prat from The Institute of Directors on BBC News this morning on 'the new idea' of creating the 'English Baccalaureate' to replace GCSEs.
Oh, fook, WHERE do I even START with this one!!!!! I'll let Pink Floyd say it all for me...........
Right, load the entire Institute of Directors into the hold and ship 'em off to Feckers Island!
And please, do not believe the *neutralizing* of Home Schoolers that you are fed. You will always get the odd nutter here and there, but you do amongst teachers too. There are many teachers who LOATHE children and who do much damage to them, damage which, for some children, will last their whole life long. So please, do NOT give me that sanctimonious crap of School Is Wonderful, because it ain't.
And all those who run schools or who desire the factory fodder they are supposed to produce want, is good little workers who don't question, who see 'Life' as being ALL about WORK and NOTHING else!
Well, I was Born Free as were my children, and having tried the Edukashun System we chose Freedom....and it worked, believe it or not...although I just wish I'd taken my daughter out far sooner than I did, but I, like so many others, thought you were not 'allowed' to home-educate, because, of course, you are NEVER informed there is an alternative, but simply led down the path of institutionalizing your children...
And these days it's starting earlier and earlier and earlier..
It's utterly wrong...
And ONE DAY, those who come after us will look back in horror at what we put our children through, of how we believed all that we were told because we too had been put through a system which brainwashes children, through fear, of always obeying those in charge...
