“We need to reinforce the message that school is a ‘place of work’ preparing youngsters for the world of work, where a work ethic is required – not a house of fun to meet youngsters’ social needs.”
They are kids – it’s their JOB to have no work ethic, to have fun, to run screaming around a playground, to laugh, to cry, to befriend, fall out with and then make up with others – that’s bloody hard work and if you can’t do all that when you ARE a kid then when in hell are they meant to?
Maurice Smith – loosen up ffs. (And while you are probably not chilling out, will you also stop telling us how to raise our kids? I don’t tell you what to do and what my kuds do out of school is entirely my business, not yours.)
