It's worse than that.
A few weeks ago, I asked my daughter what she learned last week, she couldn't think of anything, and so later when I bumped into a teacher of hers, I asked "Do they do times tables."
"No he said, we don't have time for that."
I therefore wondered what they actually are learning at school. Lo and behold, she announced, after querying every day for a week, on what she'd learned she said "I've learned the policy on what to do to counter bullying."
So I came to work, and spoke to my boss about it and he said, "Yes, I know, that's why all our kids are now in private school." My son can do his 17 times table if you asked him, and he's just 6. "My wife asked the headmistress what the f*ck they were teaching the kids, and she said, we're teaching them methods of learning."
Unfortunately my wife thinks that because the government says the school is great, (using evidence collected by the labour party, defined by the labour party, and marked by the labour partyaccording to labour partydefined measures and reported according to kill, kill, kill them all, labour party defined criteria,) then our kids are going to be ok. Not surprisingly I'm trying to earn a million quid quick, because I disagree with the wife.
F*cking fantastic. Roll on Michael Gove, the IGSE, the IB.
