Ooh my gosh, another "Prats of The Week" Award one day after my last one, Nanny really has excelled herself this week!
Anyhoo, this award goes to the Liberal Democrats and Nu Labour (for listening to the Liberal Democrats).
The Libs have been beguiled by an a Ofsted survey that says that a third of pupils do not believe they are properly listened to by their schools.
I recall, at the tender age of 16.5, attending a sixth form/Masters forum at my old school and asking for a bar to be opened in school.
I was ignored!
Anyhoo the Libs are having none of this and have tabled an amendment to the educashun bill, that has been accepted by Nu Labour; whereby kids as young as five will win the legal right to tell teachers how they should be taught and disciplined for bad behaviour. They will have a say in the running of their schools, from the uniforms they wear to the meals they eat.
In the House of Lords, Children's Minister Baroness Morgan said:
"As a minimum, schools should seek and take account of pupils' views on policies on the delivery of the curriculum, behaviour, the uniform, school food, health and safety, equalities and sustainability, not simply on what colour to paint the walls."
Why not just let the kids teach themselves, and be done with the whole expensive business of paying adult teachers?
The Libs and Nu Labour, well deserving "Prats of The Week"!
By the way, does this mean that I can now ask my old school to open that bar then?
