Tory Plans for Schools – Privatisation and exam factories!
Posted on by Opher I wrote this eight years ago and I have been proved right! Sausage machine exam factories and academies run by heartless business tycoons.
The Tory plans for education are – MORE OF THE SAME!!
They plan on privatising schools by creating failure and forcibly putting them in the hands of profit making syndicates of academies with vested interests (either religious bigotry or profit from kids).
They plan on force-feeding the kids to create factories of despair and failure.
Seemingly all that matters are the ones who can make the grade. The rest can be jettisoned down the big chute to the land of perpetual failure where they can be castigated and pilloried as being worthless.
Exams are important but only to a degree. Yes they can get you into higher education and a career. But there is a lot more to life and education than that!
Where is the room for creativity? Isn’t this the strength of our nation? Aren’t we master designers, inventors and creators? You don’t get that from force-feeding facts.
Where’s the social empathy? Or are we looking for a generation of uncaring psychopaths who will naturally be Tory voters? I think I prefer to live in a supportive, caring society with people who are happy and fulfilled.
Where is the education of the Whole Child? It’s being sacrificed on Tory dogma – where all that matters is the elite, the Public Schools and the rest of us are dross, plebs and cretins to be fed through the machine.
Meanwhile the pressure on teachers grows, the best leave and the system decays!
Heaven help us! We are being ruled by conniving idiots!
