Latest "Gove" proposal is for individual Heads to decide when the school is on holiday. Discuss.
As is said, a recipe for disaster I should think Woody. What happens when parents have children at different schools and the holidays don't co-incide. Perhaps someone can enlighten me as to why the change is thought to be necessary. Seems a totally cockeyed idea to me.
I wonder sometimes how I ever managed to get an education. War baby, so lots of the teachers, when demobbed, had a quick course in how to teach and, hey presto, into the classroom. A lot taught by fear. But, blow me down, I managed to learn to read and write without some know nothing politician forever poking his/her (have to be PC) nose in. Classes were minimum of 36. I know that because I was always 35. I also had 6 weeks holiday during the Summer. Did me no harm and I'm sure the teachers enjoyed it too.
Gone off on a tangent a bit.
I, of course, have no problems with yobs because I is posh and they don't use my road They actually use the recreation ground just round the corner. We do have a pretty good team of police who use pedal bikes to get to whereever there is trouble reported and quickly move the kids on. Have a team for every ward. Works well.
