Here’s a dirty little secret. I have a favourite child. And if you have more than one then you do too. !! Go on admit it. YOU DO !! If you’re still sitting there and saying ‘not me’ then I’m here to tell you this. You’re either lying to yourself or lying to everyone else.
Dearest President Trump,
As a British subject I’d just like to thank you for your “concern” over the recent terrorist attacks. It’s nice to hear you aren’t for terrorism and sure, it’s been emotional. However, I’d just like to clear up a few things. We’ve seen a lot of sensationalist headlines and tweets coming from across the pond and quite frankly, that shit ain’t right.
The British have lived with the threat of terrorism for some time now, from the IRA to the more modern threat of self-styled ISIS. It’s something as adults we’ve learnt to live with, but with the recent Manchester bombings, it’s now really landing on our kids’ radar. How do we talk to THEM about the terrorist threat?
The newspapers this week are full of reports about schools offering ridiculous prizes (incentives) for 100% school attendance.
Quite apart from the cost to cash strapped schools, I think this is a terrible idea. I believe it is totally driven by Ofsted, box ticking and image obsession, rather than any genuine care for a pupil’s education (or pastoral best interests).
