More evidence to show that home-schooling is getting more attractive by the day

Would you really want this bunch of half-wits teaching your children and filling their heads with Leftist guff? If you don’t then home-schooling may well be the answer.

Over the last decade or so there has been a growing amount of evidence that Britain’s schools have ceased to be places of education and have changed into places of political indoctrination. For example: parents who object to enforced Islamic propaganda have been classed as ‘racist’ and those who wish to hang on to their parental rights when it comes to teaching about things such as sexuality, mocked as ‘bigots’ or have been harassed by Social Services.

Now there is yet more evidence of the afflictions that the lunatics of the political Left are imposing on to our children coming from an article in the Daily Mail of the 1st January 2015. I had to read this article several times to make sure that I wasn’t looking at a spoof from April 1st 2014 but sadly this story isn’t an April Fools Day joke, it is a description of what is really going on in Britain’s schools. How did we ever get to the stage where teachers were admonishing children for what are nothing more than playground taunts.

It is a fact of life that children will be cruel to other children, it has happened throughout history and many of us have either been cruel as children or have been subjected to peer-cruelty when young. Such experiences are a part of growing up and learning the rules of give and take and how to compromise or not compromise when necessary. Normally, as a child grows and matures they start to put themselves into the shoes of other individuals, learn empathy for others and the mocking cruelty often subsides. That’s life and that’s the way things are.

The Daily Mail article is shocking because it shows just how deeply political correctness and ‘opinion policing’ has embedded itself in Britain’s schools. Children as young as three years old are having negative opinions about them recorded on their school files because these children may have said something that the lefty teachers do not approve of. This is a scandalous state of affairs and should be a great encouragement to those parents who wish to home-school their children away from the politically correct propaganda that British school curricula are infested with and that teachers push at almost every opportunity.

The Daily Mail said:

Children as young as three are being branded racists, homophobes and bigots over playground taunts.

Thousands of pupils are being reported for so-called hate crimes after using innocuous words such as ‘Chinese boy’, ‘Somalian’ or ‘gay’.

Teachers also log insults like ‘doughnut’ and ‘fat bucket of KFC’. Even calling a pupil a ‘girl’ can be classified as abuse.

Schools file the incidents for local education authorities. The details are also passed to Ofsted inspectors who are required to assess how teachers deal with bullying. 

Records of a child’s ‘prejudice-related’ behaviour can be passed to their next school, potentially casting a shadow over their secondary education.

Alleged offences by more than 4,000 pupils were logged in just 13 council areas – meaning the national total may stretch into the tens of thousands. 

Civil liberties campaigners warned the practice could have serious consequences for any children labelled as bigots.

Josie Appleton, of the Manifesto Club, a civil liberties group, said: ‘Particularly worrying is the expansion of incident recording and reporting to ever-greater categories of prejudice, which seem limited only by the strange imagination of education officials.

One primary school pupil calling another a girl suddenly becomes a sign of gender image prejudice, subjected to recording requirements more thorough than accompanying most burglaries. A reality check is urgently required.’

The reporting of racist incidents in schools became recommended practice for local education authorities across the country under Labour.

The Coalition government made clear that schools were no longer under obligation to submit these reports to LEAs and should exercise their own judgment in deciding whether to record.

However, data published by the Manifesto Club – and gained under the Freedom of Information Act – shows that reporting and recording has continued and in some cases has been expanded.

The 30 LEAs who recorded the most abuse under Labour were surveyed and 13 continue to collect racist incident reports from schools and six have expanded their recording to include a broader range of ‘prejudice-related’ bullying. 

The majority say they ask, recommend or encourage schools to keep their own records.

In 2012-13 – the latest available statistics – 4,348 incidents were reported to the 13 LEAs.

Of the 1,909 incidents where the age of children involved was specified, over half were in primary schools and astonishingly, four were in nursery schools.

In one case, at a Brighton school nursery, a child aged three or four was the subject of an incident report and given counselling.

Looking at pictures of people with different eye colours he had said ‘yuk not black’ and discarded all the black faces. 

In a primary school in the same city, a group of Year Two children (ages six/seven) were hauled in before their headteacher after a mother had complained they had called her son ‘Chinese boy’ at playtime because they did not know his name.

Readers may note that the majority of the local authorities that are turning schools into socialist indoctrination centres are Labour ones and this is yet another reason why Labour are unfit to run a whelk stall let alone have control over what our children are taught.

It has come to the sorry state of affairs that if you want your child to learn stuff and not parrot leftist bullshit then the only way to do this is, if you are able, is to home-school your child. Until the worthless cadre of Leftist ‘Drek’ that masquerade as teachers are removed from our education system and ‘Plowdenism’ consigned to the dustbin of history, then abuses and political bias such as those illustrated by the Mail article will continue, and will probably ultimately get worse. If the Government and Local Authorities wanted to design a policy that engendered distrust of teachers and suspicion of schools, then allowing schools to classify three year olds as being ‘bigots’ would be the right way to go about it.

Parents need to stand up and say that our children are not the property of the state but are the responsibility of parents. This article shows me the future of education in Britain and I can truly say that such a future stinks.

  1. Gove left a job undone, I think..

      I could not agree more on that one. Gove failed to tackle the Leftist bias in education. What particularly annoys me about this case is that although the Govt had said that education authorities should not go all ‘big brother’ on kids, Labour councils are continuing to do this.

      I want my child to learn stuff at school, not have his head filled with Leftist guff.
