A Handbook for Change or 'Happy Talk'

Seems to me that without action this is just a lot of 'happy talk'.

The Shallow End  

Posted by BT in ,

Brandine the Redneck had her chance to shine during 'circle time' tonight. She spent her moment of fame banging on about how the parent body of her school drew from the shallow end of the gene pool and how she was struggling to cope on so many levels. Blah, blah, blah.

Anyway, to her credit Brandine did propose a very practical and innovative solution. She put forward the idea, 'All people would be sterilised at birth and would only be granted the right to procreate after passing a very thorough state administered examination'.

Selflessly I volunteered myself to spearhead the drive to develop the standards and that way people with ideas like Brandine would never be allowed to breed.

I had to endure a 'staff meeting' today where there was not a single item on the agenda which dealt with the education of students. The meeting consisted only of 'administrivia', 'empire building' and circular arguments.

Oh where oh where are all the smart people in Education?

Oh that's right... I do believe they buggered off before the system sapped their will to live.
