swirlygirl BS: Why is the UK in a mess part 2 (47) RE: BS: Why is the UK in a mess part 2 11 Feb 02


And kids don't get lower marks because you can't afford a computer!! What a stupid thing to say...there are lots of people out there who are geniuses (I suppose that would be genii or something for all those who no doubt will correct me) who've never used a computer in their lives. If you can't read, then what good does a computer do? GIGO as the saying goes...

My school only had about two computers (and I graduated in 1995 so it's quite recent) and I'm doing fine thank you very much about to embark on a masters degree...

I never went on a school trip in my life and I would never have asked if I could because I knew we couldn't afford it. yes I was bullied for stuff but that's part of life...it's nature...no matter what you do kids will always be bullied...we are only animals after all...Kids get over it. I have...and others I know have too...everyone is bullied in some way or other in life. It's the not letting it get to you and making you bitter and angry that's the hard part. If you do it right, it can make you stronger. You can't wallow in your own self pity forever...Christ if I'd to do that I'd never get out of bed!

And corporal punishment...all for it...think the deterrent factor is good. Child burns hand once in fire, tends not to do it again. Child gets strap across hand in school would you cause trouble again? I wouldn't...

So you see ferrett...I'm actually on your side...you infuriate me by not realising that, but I'm still on your side...
