IMO a good education system would identify a pupil's potential and develop it.

Blair, Cameron and Balls all oppose the Grammar School system in the interests of "fairness"; all went to fee paying schools!!?!

I am full of admiration for tradesmen like carpenters and bricklayers; I wish I could repair my own car.

There is a growing attitude that these are "shyte" jobs, and its patronising to admit all kids dont have Uni potential.

Presumably that is why Tony imported so many Eastern European building tradesmen, it was patronising and unfair to expect our kids to learn a trade.

Discipline from parents ,or a lack of to be more precise and individual choice.
You do not have to be well off to make your kids go to school it is free for all in our wonderful socialist society .

parents are the problem,especially the ones on benefits who have no intention of ever trying to get a job,all they think they need to do for their kids is teach them how to sign a form and ** the benefit system and they do that brilliantly.
