Half of pupils are being consigned 'to the scrapheap'

Postby sunshine » 13 Mar 2011, 11:46

Half of all teenagers in England and Wales are being failed by secondary schools that focus on brighter children destined to go on to higher education, according to a damning new report from the thinktank Demos.

well, maybe there should be a split in schools... one for those who should pursue higher education and one for those who want just go out and work

good point sun... there is always pressure on puils 'bettering' themselves but maybe some just want to go out and have a job and live their life - or do we want a society where every single person is a doctor, or lawyer, or architect etc???... society is too weird these days, trying to force people to do things they don't want to do!!!!...

Can it possibly be that this is something that all of us can agree on????

We need a master list of things that mark, sunshine, and SoGone agree on. Going from memory, so far we have:


1. Suede are a great band
2. "This Is A Low" is a great song
3. "there should be a split in schools... one for those who should pursue higher education and one for those who want just go out and work"

I'm pretty sure it went something like this:


Mark: We should all meet up and have a threesome!
SoGone: Well, we should at least all meet up.
Sunshine: :lol:
