Winston Smith

If any of you would like to know what the wretches I taught get up to outside school, then have a read of Winston Smith's excellent blog. He works in a home for lazy bastards- sorry disadvantaged young adults and his bosses are as cretinous as mine were.

What should we do with these kids? Lots of people would say "Stick 'em in the Army!" except that the Armed Forces don't want to touch them with a barge pole. What they need is some role models- strong adults they can look up to, not run rings around. These adults need the power to enforce rules and show their charges exactly what they need to do to make themselves useful members of society and then make them do it. It's not rocket science.

What they get instead is... well read his blog.

disturbing, how society bends over backwards to "meet the nees" of those crimim=nals...OK, so some had a rought time...no good pussyfooting around them, they need clear rules and structures and their benefits cut off if they misbehave.

But all you get is appeasement and excuses.
There's only one question necessary in a mainstream state school: would the "client" do it if a caning would be the immediate inevitable result?

Education is a must for everyone, only then a person will communicate and face problems easily in all aspects. Plenty of job openings are there but it is meant only for the right candidate, its the right time to develop new skills to become one of the right person what the company/organization expects.
