Britain Has the Most Successful Education in the World (29 January 2016)
"When Anthony Crossland, [as] Education Secretary, set out in 1965 to destroy what he called 'every ... grammar school', he must have been aware that by doing so he'd be destroying ... education in any meaningful sense. Yet that was exactly the aim for which his progressivist loins ached. Education, or for that matter anything else, didn't have to be good. It just had to be equal - equally abysmal for anyone not blessed with parents able to pay for private schooling. As a side effect, it consigned to eternal misery the very poor in whose name progressive socialists are destroying our civilisation..."
Socialism Tested in the Classroom (07 February 2015)
"An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, 'OK, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism..."
Socialist Propaganda in British Education (22 July 2009)

Teacher Trainers Are Only Interested in Social Engineering (31 July 2017)
"I embarked on my PGCE course in Primary Education full of hope, eager to step into the classroom to teach. I had chosen my institution carefully and I was delighted to be accepted onto a course at one of London's most prestigious institutions. Once the course was underway I was surprised by how little emphasis was placed in actual subject content: short of a few exercises in science, arithmetic and basic English, there was little else to ensure that prospective teachers could actually transmit a body of knowledge. The main emphasis of the course was to assimilate the tenets of progressive theory that have been the intellectual backbone of the teaching profession [sic] since the 1960s..."
"The Leftie Tories have launched another attack in their relentless war on conservatives with their new guidance to independent school on what 'values' teachers may and my not mention in the classroom. Schools and teachers are advised that they will be failed by Ofsted if they even suggest that they do not agree with same-sex marriage or civil partnerships ... It establishes a chilling principle: if you disagree with the government or do not toe the politically correct line, you will be out of a job..."
"In the BBC TV series Civilisation, professor Mary Beard decried the British love of Greek art. She said it had led to narrow Eurocentrism. According to this view, what used to be termed our 'Island Story' was a vast detour away from appreciating other cultures, steeped in blood, slavery and theft, and little else. This belief is now taught right through our educational system, from kindergarten to university, focusing on our national canon of work, from children's books to fine art..."
Shorten Degree Courses - and Cull the Leftie Humanities (23 December 2017)
While Mr Johnson, and hopefully Ms Somerville too, are thinking about shorter degrees, I hope they will take time to consider another improvement to higher education: fewer degrees ... the nation would benefit, and not just financially, from having far fewer humanities students and in the case of politics, sociology and social work, no students at all..."
YOUTUBE: Felix Ngole Explains the Implication of His Social Work Course Ban (13 October 2017)

My Chat With a Critical Race Theorist (12 September 2017)
"[I]f we also take Sociology of Culture, Critical Legal Theory, Discourse Analysis, Black Studies, Post-Colonial Studies, Deconstruction, Critical Race Studies, Media Studies, Peace Studies, Subaltern Studies, Ethnic Studies, Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, Queer Theory, Critical Theory... ad infinitum, we can safely say that these academic disciplines are deeply political. That is, they don't simply study politics and society: they're also deeply political in themselves. What that means is that such academics have political causes and values in mind before they carry out their 'empirical research'. Political causes and values colour almost everything they do ... such academics are as politically-driven as they claim their opponents are ... The aforementioned academic disciplines, therefore, are but means to bring about political ends..."
"[C]omputer science teacher Calvin Robinson said he was 'not at all surprised that the majority of young people voted in line with a Left-wing agenda to remain in the undemocratic, or even anti-democratic EU.

"The British government is currently trying to root out extremism in the British education system following concerns that Islamists [sic] are indoctrinating children.

History as Pro-Immigration Propaganda (21 May 2015)
"Two of the three major exam boards have included 'immigration' in the new exam to be taught from 2016. Currently, the specifications are awaiting final approval by the exam regulator, Ofqual. The version to be offered by the OCR Board - 'Immigration to Britain c1000 to 2010' - is illustrative. The board is very clear about its aim for the new history exam..."
Pupils at Christian School Branded 'Bigots'... (21 January 2015)
"Pupils at a Christian school (and it is mainly Christian schools or schools with mainly white pupils which are picked on, of course) have been branded bigots... after a young boy gave the wrong answer when asked what a Muslim was. ... Inspectors also concluded [that another Christian school's] children were intolerant after allegedly asking ten-year-old pupils what lesbians 'did'. ...

Losing Our Children in the Classroom (30 November 2012)
"There is no question about the enormous influence of contemporary mass education, and how it can be used as a tool of indoctrination and propaganda.

Wow, Mr Gove! Back to the Future! (21 June 2012)
"Much excitement over the political implications of Education Secretary Michael Gove's stunning decision, ... to scrap the 16+ GCSE exam and bring back in its place the academic O-Level and more vocational CSE. ... what's really important is the stunning impact these proposals - if they and Gove survive - will have in starting to reverse Britain's education disaster. ... What Gove has understood is that the reason why GCSE has become unfit for purpose is also the reason why education standards in general have disintegrated. This is the doctrine of equality of outcomes..."

English Education - A Project to Culturally Cleanse the English (19 March 2012)

But if you thought all this has just happened by accident, you would be absolutely wrong..."

CHILD ABUSE LATEST: DfE to Sexualise Primary School Children (27 February 2019)
"With effect from September 2020 primary school children as young as five must be taught about gay [sic] and transgender relationships. And parents' right to withdraw their children from inappropriate sex education is to be further reduced form the same date ... the DfE wants to indoctrinate [children] with adult concepts about homosexuality and gender dysphoria ... teaching primary school children about homosexual relationships and about people changing their sex inevitably sexualised them out of their childhood innocence..."
Reader's comment: "The best education ended in the 1950's. Since then there has been the deliberate gradual erosion of real education to be replaced by political re-education./indoctrination camps. The only sex education that should be taught at schools is about reproduction. Any teachers who willingly apply this are not teachers but people who have already been brainwashed and indoctrinated by the enemies of all that is good in the world. Incredible as it may seem to these re-education gulag lunatics most people are capable of making their own way in life and discovering about themselves. They don't need your cynical and sinister help. Let alone have it enforced by terror upon the entire population"

A De-Sexed Society is a De-Humanized Society (25 May 2016)
"Gender ideology is an effective statist tool. Cultural Marxists use it to corrupt language and sow confusion, especially among children. It paves the way for the removal of the institutional protections for freedom of association and family privacy that stand in the way of [the State's agenda]. ... The educational establishment had to imbue schoolchildren with the ideology..."

"If you get upset about being called a snowflake... you might be a snowflake." / Viewers' comments: "I wonder if this young lady is upset when some fundamentalist nutjob maims and slaughters people" / "Back in the days throwing a fit to get things our way was all too futile and it would result in corporal punishment, and now the younger generation have become so entitled that their crying and whining have become a way of protesting on a political level" / "So she is crying over Big Bad Donny's tweet, and not over the Muslim violence in the videos referenced by said tweet? She's the victim, not the people suffering at the hands of Muslim violence?" / "The culture in schools of overly praising children and not allowing them to fail has caused this" / "Life is tough. Not everyone is going to agree with you. Step up and grow!" / "Statist snowflakes need to deal with things themselves rather than cry to their nanny state parent"
How Did So Many of Today's Students Turn Into Snowflakes? (26 August 2017)
"As anyone who has read a newspaper in the past few months will know, this planet boasts two kinds of snowflakes. One is an exquisite natural wonder, formed from a single tiny crystal, which falls through the sky, attracting cloud droplets which accumulate in dazzling patterns of ice. The other is rather less of a wonder. Formed from a single tiny brain cell, it wafts through the British university system in a cloud of victimhood, attracting similarly strident comrades who accumulate in student unions and spaces where they are safe from criticism and hurtful ideas..."

It's Pure Historical Amnesia to Say the Boomers Had It Good (10 March 2016)
"To see how entrenched historical amnesia has become, consider this remark made by a member of Generation Y, those born between 1980 and the mid-1990s, in the Guardian this week: 'My parents' generation [the Baby Boomers] was luckier... they were able to go straight from university and move to London and afford their own flat'. Excuse me? Whose parents went to university? Mine didn't. I can't think of a single kid at the Catholic comp I attended in the 1980s and early 1990s whose parents ever darkened the door of a university. ... the vast majority of our parents' generation, the Boomers, didn't go to university. In the 1960s, 5% of 18-year-olds went to university; today, 43% do. ... The Boomers all got free degrees? Please. They never went to university..."

Those Poor Delicate Dandelions (14 November 2016)
"Back in 2007 Diana West wrote an important volume entitled The Death of the Grownup. In it she lamented the fact that an entire generation of adults are stuck in adolescence. They have refused to grow up, to take personal responsibility for their lives, and they expect the state to look after them from cradle to grave. This is the entitlement generation gone ballistic..."

He has been working for some years with people who for one reason or another have begun the process of gender-transition, and then come to regret it ... The university, having initially approved of his idea for a thesis, then turned down his application ... 'It's better not to offend people.' ... This is all of a piece with students at Oxford wanting to pull down the statue of 19th century imperialist Cecil Rhodes from his old college, Oriel, on the grounds that he was racist ... rather than having a reasoned debate..."

King's College is Ashamed of Its Founding Fathers (18 July 2017)
"King's College has sought to make itself less 'alienating' by airbrushing its white past and creating a 'wall of diversity'. The pictures of the university's founding fathers in their Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience are living on borrowed time, being deemed too 'intimidating' for ethnic minorities walking past ... teaching materials, such as diagrams of the human anatomy, will also be changed to feature a 'range of ethnic groups' in an effort to be more 'inter-cultural'. ... KCL's Institute of Psychology brainwashing its students..."
"KCL is to swap portraits of some its founding fathers with a 'wall of diversity' amid pressure from students, ... Founded in 1924 as a hospital medical school, the Institute [of PPN] owes its existence to a donation from Dr Henry Maudsley, a pioneering British psychiatrist, and neurologist Sir Frederick Mott, who drew up plans for university courses for training in the field of psychiatry in 1896.

"The snowflakes who landed on the meeting at KCL like wet sleet are not important; they will wash away like water. they are strangely close to the imperialists exemplified by Cecil Rhodes who they so despise ... There is silliness and sadness in this but also danger. The Left has turned away from the centre ground, not to embrace political reality but fantasy. While they make idiotic gestures they ignore the dangerous new alliance forming between Russia, Iran, Syria and Turkey. They ignore tyranny which created more migration and instability, and they will not face up to radicalisation among migrants in the West..."

"In this episode, Yaron recaps what happened at King's College and the details of Antifa's attack during a free speech discussion." [NB: video starts at 50 seconds]
"The UK is a free country because there is freedom of speech, thought, conscience, and belief, but these freedoms are under attack ... Universities should be places where students learn how to think. Many have instead become places where students are programmed with politically correct groupthink, where deviation from the politically correct narrative is a punishable offence ... University students are adults: if they can't listen to an opinion that they don't agree with without needing to go to their safe space, then they shouldn't be at university. Nobody is going to agree with every opinion they hear, but students should not be mollycoddled. They do not need protection from being offended. This is particularly true for most visiting speakers: students normally have a choice as to whether they go to listen to them or not. There is no reason to 'no platform' a visiting speaker unless they are inciting violence. If freedom of speech is eroded, either actively or passively, then we replace it with totalitarianism, where everybody is required to have the same opinion and thoughts" [source].
For a Balanced Education, There's No Place Like Home (30 November 2017)

"Local Councils are calling for greater powers to enter the homes of home-schooled children so that they can monitor their education.

They would be better served by going home to their bedrooms and sitting at their computer and studying their chosen subject" / "This is an example of the result of lowering entrance standards for university while also being in a lefty bubble" / "The thing is that they don't feel embarrassed. They still cling to their arguments even after being completely taken apart by logic and reason.

"Well, it was revealed this week that free speech is now a thing of the past in 90% of British universities because the current generation of students - 'Generation Snowflake' as it's become known - is so intellectually fragile that many of them can't hear an opposing argument without dissolving in a puddle of 'traumatised feelings', and they need to 'take refuge' in what they call 'safe spaces'; places they say are designed to promote inclusiveness, by, you've guessed it, excluding people - specifically anyone with an unwelcome opinion which may have a toxic effect on the vulnerable occupants of these 'safe spaces' and 'trigger' them by reminding them of things that have happened in the past that make them sad. In other words, these are people who have been intellectually disenfranchised by their own heightened sense of 'specialness'..."
