Avoid university. If I were 18 again in modern Britain, there's no way I'd go to university. I'd learn a trade. If I wanted to read classical literature, I'd buy books. Who needs a professor telling you what to think about Chaucer or Austn, or Enid Blyton for that matter. It's always a Marxist slant.  It was happening when I was in my first year back in 1973 but on a very small scale, and only with some subjects.

I never went. Got on a ferry the day after I left school and went to France. Grape picking and agricultural jobs until Italy and Boat building.

I've always read a lot. I read a lot of Greek and Roman classics as well as Dickens when young. I read Tolkien as a primary school kid.

The tripe they pushed on me then was atrocious. In secondary school I remember having to read the Outsiders by S.E Hinton I think. Pointless American twaddle. They wonder why I wasn't interested. I was to busy travelling the Aegean with Plato and reading Plinys thoughts.

I can also remember doing a book quiz in the last year of Primary school. As I was getting all the answers correct the teacher decided to try and humiliate me. He got really pissed off when I knew the author's for King Solomon's mines and the Tarzan books.

 

On another note my daughter was tested in year 6 and found to have Uni level standard in English Language and Literature. Not bad for a kid who never spoke English much until she was 6 or 7. She applied to goto a Nexus school. (American concept). The snobby principal didnt like it when she question, correctly, what was told to her. Needless to say she never got in. Im actually really happy about that. When going into a classroom for a look it was like Children of the corn.

Robotic and soulless.

 

Excuse the essay. I just hate the way the education system dos the opposite of its name.

When I was 15, I was given a copy of Marjoribank's biography of Edward Marshall Hall and that set me on my career path. I loved the classics and we were expected to read and discuss many great books. We did read some American literature which was mostly Mark Twain, which I enjoyed, and Melville. It was very male oriented but it was a boy's school. I've always enjoyed Dickens and, as I recall, we had Great Expectations for O level and Bleak House for A level.

Those were the days when some teachers still encouraged pupils to challenge themselves. My daughter is going into year 10 soon. In four years of secondary school she has never been asked to write an essay. The most homework of any sort is a few multiple choice questions.

Now Im all for not indoctrinating anyone but now they're not even pretending to give an "education."

Maybe it's just me, but I think they have run out of ideas for these stupid superhero movies. 

From the Safe Space of the Marvel Universe comes Cuddle Man. He smells of lavender and the flower on his forehead lights up when you hug him.

That's not good. We wrote essays in primary school. Admittedly, they weren't complicated, but it was a foundation. We were graded on essays so how a can a pupil go though, what, 4 years of secondary education and not write an essay?

Its ridiculous in honesty. I wrote essays in primary school as well. I really enjoyed creative writing at the time.

Same situation here, year 11, learning sweet FA, teachers are extremely volatile with them - maybe a few good ones from dozens.  Not only are they not being tought anything of any real substance, the teachers, from day one - have treated them like utter crap - they are just spoken to and treated like rowdy criminals?  Most kids I meet now (friends of my kids)  think this is normal for grown adults to act this way?
I assure them that we are not all like that.
It was similar in 'our day' too though wasn't it?
As soon as I got to senior school, most (not all) the teachers were basically just shit towards us? 
For no reason?
But - I suppose - for me anyway - I learnt something acedemic, English and Art was good.
No wonder the kids play up - they feel hated from day one so - what's the point?

School was great until we were about 10 or 11. Then something shitty went on. Maybe kids growing up, different kind of teachers, dunno. But I ended up going from the perfect pupil to couldn't-give-a-shit. And I'd let them know it as well. I knew what they were up to. I said, this ain't proper education. And tore up books in front of them.

 

Needless to say my official education ended at 15.

I don't know what to say. Some of my teachers were tough all right and not shy about using the cane, but the vast majority had come through the post-war teacher training programmes for ex-servicement. I can't say I was ever treated like crap but discipline was pretty rigorously enforced. After the 3rd year, you were expected to behave like a young adult. That world has gone for ever. Education is a business now. They don't want an educated population or kids that can think for themselves. Those that can pay, get the education they want for their kids. The rest have to make do with what they are given. At least in my day, if you were from a working-class background and had the smarts, you could get on.

Im dreading my youngest starting secondary school in two years time. She has a lovely, kind soul. Makes friends easily and is constantly questioning her reality. 

Secondary school will do its best to break her but we have brought her up to be mentally tough. No one will speak to her or any one else I love like crap. At least not without getting a load back

You're not alone. A lot of my mates left at 15 and got an apprenticeship, or a job. By the time I was 18, they were making good money and doing all right. One lad apprenticed to a butcher and ended up running the shop when he was 20 and married into his boss's family. A few joined the army.

I went from being "a ray of sunshine" with the "biggest smile" in the place to an outright rebel in about 5 years. It almost broke me. Changed me, for sure. At the time anyway. I got myself back in the end. It's probably why I sniffed out the scams and the conspiracies early on, because my eyes had been opened to so much institutionalised bullshit.

 

There was no fucking way I was hanging around any longer than I had to.

Don't know what the answer is. Home-school? Private school? Both take up a lot of resources, financial and emotional. Any chance there's a church-run school near you? I wouldn't put a kid of mine in a state school in this day and age. They are exposed to concepts that young minds are not equipped to handle like the trans stuff. Whatever qualities your child possesses could be seen as detrimental to the agenda of the school and teachers and may be drummed out of her. Peer pressure too is something to consider. Who wants to be the odd kid out?

Your ight in thinking about alternate ways of education. There isn’t much around where I am so I’ll home school  if I have to.

I reckon I learned more from my mum helping me with times tables, learning to write, and reading books to me as a kid, then I ever did within the school gates. They just taught me to become a jaded, angry, directionless blob, "learning" rubbish I'd never need in the real world. Which I refused to go along with.

Why isn't France banning Netflix? This subversive shite will inspire more violence.

 

Children of men I thought the same & is playing out surreally accurate right now..infact govenment now removing jabs from pregnant mother..made it perfectly fine before & encouraged it so rather than admit how many miscarriages & abortions, plus the weird periods..just politely announce to the public we think its best lol.

Not to mention the film they are led to Chelsea power station "welcome to the machine" Orwellian nightmare..police state.

Then you have the lone black mother Mary  & the coast crammed full of Muslims,,with some strange Marxist chosen leader.
