I was gemused to read the other day that Shafton Advanced Learning Centre in Barnsley (why can't they just call it a school?) recently gave its 11 year old pupils a worksheet in which they were asked to grade swear words (eg the F word).
Entitled 'Acceptable or Not?' it listed situations including:
-telling your friend to f--- off,
-shouting f--- off across a classroom, in a shopping centre or in assembly and
A Telegraph censored version of the worksheet can be seen here.
In a statement, the school said:
"As part of our social responsibility we are educating our students to understand what kind of language is appropriate, at what times and in what contexts."There is a certain logic to that, I suppose. However, it would probably help the kids more if they were first taught to read, write and speak in a coherent rational manner; ie schools should focus on the core skills needed by children (the three arses) if they are to have a hope in hell of functioning as adults in the real world.
