Good to see

Good on the organisation called Meco, for taking a stand and doing something. (It doesn't say how much they're going to give but at least they are contributing, which is more than can be said for Buckinghamshire Council)

If this had happened in Caterham, would the group be called Mecca?

I agree with one of the posts on this site that certain sections of the muslim community will keep chipping away at this until they get their own way.I feel sorry for those muslims who have invested heavily in this country as regards businesses etc.and have no problems integrating.They must feel that all their efforts are being jeopardised by a vociferous minority.

I have no problems with the sections of the Asian community who want to intergrate fully into English society, and I am pleased that certain Muslim sections are trying to help this school.

However, and stone me if you wish, we need to remember that this is a predominantly Christian, democratic country and it should remain so! I have no problem with people who wish to integrate into our society, but that means they should adopt our values, beliefs and traditions fully ( and not pick and choose the ones they want and disregard the rest.)

If they don't wish to do that then go back to your historical country of origin! There was a post on here about the Australian governments refusal to allow their Muslim population to have Sharia law, if we are not careful we will end up with it here. I for one do not want that. I firmly believe in the old saying "when in Rome do as the Romans do."

Avoiding for just a teenytiny moment the "ethnic aspect" (can of worms), why is it that a parent gets legal aid for fighting/challenging the school and its rules, but the school doesn't get legal aid to defend itself?

Totally agree with Mary, why does the student get legal aid and the school doesn't?

I have just heard that the Dewsbury teaching assistant who wanted to wear a veil and took the school to court (and lost for the 3rd time) is now taking the case to a higher court. Her first 3 battles were funded by legal aid, am I the only one who feels that if she pursues this and loses she should have to pay the costs of this appeal herself, as a taxpayer I feel annoyed that legal aid is given to people who choose to appeal against a decision, if they win then fair enough let legal aid cover it but if they lose then they should bear the cost, that way that might prevent cases like this that just waste money and line the pockets of solicitors.

I'm getting bloody sick of the f*ckwit niqab-wearing drivers who can't see a damn thing via peripheral vision yet who fail to compensate for not noticing me or my car by turning their heads 90 degrees.

Dare I complain or will that be another racist issue instead of a plain old common sense one?

BBC gushing over new curriculum

I honestly cannot a make out what the hell that article is on about. If anyone wishes to do a translation into normal English , then please do so.

for example:

The curriculum should better emphasise and make explicit study and learning in terms of diversity, choice, need and specialism.

This means upholding standards through stringent analysis of need within assessments, ensuring challenge and depth, requiring learners to demonstrate application, synthesis, understanding and originality.

It means rejuvenating content within the curriculum to use subject disciplines to develop skills and personal qualities in context, and demonstrate links between the traditional and emerging subjects.

In my experience, when people know what they're talking about, they can afford to use plain language that anyone can understand.

When they use gobbledegook, they haven't a clue what they're saying.
