I'm sure I could trawl through the American rags, (The Sun is a disgrace of a 'newspaper' and is only good for horse racing, Striker and Page 3),
and come up with some equally ridiculous article on PC driven schooling and try to portray it as representative of the US school system as a whole.
The Sun has it's own agenda which it pursue's with vigour at every opportunity.
This is not representative of 99% of schools in the UK and as such your thread title is misleading.
Well I was never going to post on this site again but this thread just got to me.
Freeborn, have you taken a good long look at the cbeebies channel? I watch it regularly with my grandson. Every single program (with the exception of
abney and teal) is loaded from start to finnish with "your useless on your own" and "Team work". Just take a look at how many of the programs have
presenters wearing white coats. Watch chuggington, see how its all about WORKING as a team, and taking orders from a streetlamp fitted with a
megaphone, and how it teaches children to WORK for credits not money. Watch Grandpa in my pocket and hear how its all about "TEAMWORK" See the
programs that teach children they NEED their doctor, Watch tree fu tom and see how everyday it gets children on their feet and OBEYING him and being
told "Team work", Watch horrid henry and hear how its "UNCool to not wear glasses"....
Thats just a few of the PROGRAMs that I can remember at the moment.
There is a massive program taking place in the uk that is aimed at the very young, and what the schools mentioned in the OP are doing is a part of it.
A little while ago I saw a group of very young children out on a street corner with their teacher shouting at the cars as they went past because they
were polluting their air!!!
There may only be (as you suggest) a few schools involved at the moment but I assure you this will become the norm.
Now take a look at those horrific programs that have recently started aimed at the parents of the very young and hear them teach those parents "No
Breast feeding" - "No co sleeping" - "Unfluoridated water rots your teeth".
The next generation of adults will have no bond with their parents, they'll be unable to function without their WORK team by their side, they'll
work for credits not money, and they'll happilly send their aging parents to the euthenasia hospital when the government tells them too.
The people of this country are in serious trouble!
