Compulsary Foreign Languages In Schools 12 March 2007

More foreign languages in schools is a great idea. Compulsion is not. All children are different with different abilities in different subjects. Some are good at languages but others are good at maths, science etc. We should let children develop their strengths rather than force them to study what political leaders want. This is therefore a terrible idea. It might increase the quantity of bilingual people, but not quality.

“Freedom of Choice a Nonsense,” Says Labour Commie 4 March 2007

“It is nonsense that everybody has the right to go to a school that they want,” said David Hawker, Brighton’s director of children, families and schools,” complete nonsense.”

Of course Mr Hawker, I mean, they only pay for them through their taxes… Surely you – their servant – should dictate where they go.

Labour has got to go. Article link.

Outrage at School Sex Education for 5 Year Olds 3 March 2007

The Churchill School in Hawkinge, near Folkestone, Kent, has caused outrage at plans to show sexually explicit material to 5 year olds. The DVD, Living and Growing, “includes gently introducing sex education to younger children, through puberty and birth, to media images” as well as talks about “same-sex relationships and teenage pregnancy,” according to its sales leaflets.

It apparently includes graphic depictions of the private areas of human anatomy and crude language. Its literature also says it “cchallenges beliefs” and aims to build “positive attitudes”. Five year olds shouldn’t have beliefs or attitudes in this area! It’s political correctness gone mad.

Parents were given a screening of the film, and all were outraged. They have the choice for their children not to see the DVD, but as they rightly point out the children will talk in the playground. Many have threatened to leave the school, they are evidently very good parents.

The headteacher declined to be interviewed by the BBC. Only one parent supported the DVD to the TV cameras, and she did so quickly, nervously and was seemingly very uncomfortable with what she was saying – I guess she is probably the headteacher’s friend.

It’s outrageous that primary school children are having any form of sex education, let alone this young and this graphic. These crazed people aim to destroy the innocense of childhood, we cannot let them do this.
