Educational Experts

Thanks to David for this one:

If I was a Professor of say Nuclear Physics or Analytical Chemistry; conducting ground breaking research into extremely difficult subjects which require a huge brain to understand, I would be a bit hacked off to discover that you can be a Professor of Inclusion.

Professor Sheila Riddell must presumably be an expert in preventing schools from chucking out Wayne, Dwayne and Chavney after they have commited every crime known to Man and made the teachers' lives a misery for years on end.

I can imagine it must be pretty highbrow stuff...

Well, she's good for a laugh if nothing else. Comparing school uniforms to the Hitler Youth? Comedy gold.

It's good to see that the snakeoil industry has adapted to the 21st century.You have to admire the talents of somebody who talks absolute b******s and gets paid for it.

"Making everyone look the same can of course be associated with making everyone think the same".

And of course our politically-correct intellegentsia and government would never dream of making everyone think the same. For instance, they would never try forcing everyone to believe that school uniforms are in any way like Nazi uniforms. (Why doesn't anyone mention Soviet or communist Chinese uniforms, just for a change?)
