Compare that to today, where only 163 +fully state funded Grammar Schools remain (see the map). +What is a child to do in Norwich if *he* wants a decent education? +The only options of course are to attend a fee paying school (and forever +having to be embarrassed about your parents wanting you to get a good +education, although it *is* funny when privately educated people end up in the +same position as a lowly comprehensive goer, all that money for nothing, but +anyway, I digress) or to live in an expensive area where the quality of +schooling is better, neither of which are in the control of the child. + +The reasoning behind the destruction of selective schooling, was due to the +panic over how Secondary Moderns graduates (the equivalent of modern +non-selective comprehensives) had worse fiscal outcomes than those who +attended Grammar Schools (what a shocker). It's seen as an injustice that +people may naturally have different abilities, and as such may have different +outcomes in life. It would have been much harder to improve the outcome of +those attending Secondary Moderns than it was to simply destroy +Grammar Schools instead. Not that they would ever reach the same levels. + +There is a desire to ensure that even those who don't want to pass exams leave +school with a C in English and maths (although they never do, not that it's +the fault of the school, horse, water, etc.) and in doing so resources are +taken away from those who actually want them. They cannot fail at all costs, +doing so would enforce the fact that we are not equal, and bring down +credentialism. If you don't have a GCSE in maths, how do we know that you can +count? No English GCSE? Sorry, you can't man the cash register. +Many people who did not try in school are now unfortunately being +blocked from other opportunities in life, because their employer needs to know +that when they were 16 they remembered how to do basic trigonometry. + +The sad fact is many +people take pride in being uneducated retards (not that much of what you learn +in school is even worth learning), failing +every single GCSE (when all you need to do is be able to write your name on +the paper) is almost worn as a badge of honour. +Surely it would make more sense for the top 10% to be given special attention, +which they will actually make +use of, than for the bottom 10%, the majority of which don't actually want +the help. +The same is happening to universities, Blair wanted 50% of all young people to +go to university (and he got his wish), of course new universities had to be +created for this to happen. To no one's surprise they're not up to the same +standard as the one's before. If they were, and as such had the same entry +requirements, they wouldn't be able to fill their places. It was not as if +there just weren't enough places for people to attend university, it was that +a large chunk of people weren't smart enough to get in to begin with, only +after the polytechnics were destroyed (thank you Major), did enough +sub-standard places open for those unable to finally go. +This again leads to the same credentialism where they want to see a +bachelor's degree in *anything*, before they let you anywhere near the +office supplies. + +A solution to some of these problems, would be to choose either the highest +performing, or most geographically suited, secondary school in an area, and +make it selective. If there are 8 schools in a 20-30 minute radius, then after +an entrance exam (11+), or based off the SAT, the top 12.5% will go to the +selective school (if they so choose), and everyone else will remain at their +current school, with those who used to go to the now selective school +unfortunately having to switch. At the end of year 8, you can take another +exam to gain entry again, probably switching places with someone who peaked in +primary school. This isn't a very radical change and +would require no new schools to be built. +Most people who are against the opening of more grammar or independent schools, +or turning some comprehensives into selective schools, haven't had the +displeasure of attending the human zoo that is the modern comprehensive school +that isn't lucky enough to be down a street lined with range rovers. +Those who were responsible for the closing down of Grammar Schools to begin +with usually had the advantage of attending a school that isn't inhabited by +monkeys. As per usual, pulling up the ladder behind them. +As for the universities, any solution would be too radical for a government +to undertake. A slow unwinding of ex-polytechnics either back into +polytechnics, or into colleges, would be fine, but would undoubtedly cause mass +unemployment and probably devastate the night-time economy of +many major cities. Not that any of these changes will take place anyway. +Politician's children either attend comprehensive's in rich areas, are lucky +enough to live near a grammar school, or are begrudgingly sent off to private +school. Those of them that did attend a +crap comprehensive wear it as a badge of +honour, and insist that if we just throw +enough money into this bottomless pit +then magically everyone will emerge as doctors and lawyers. + +These are only some of the problems with the current education system in +Britain, and if you're unlucky enough maybe another rambling blogpost will be +made available on your favourite website, []( +I didn't proofread this, as I felt it would be best left as an exercise to +the reader. diff --git a/blog/ b/blog/ @@ -1,15 +0,0 @@ ---- -title: Down Under -published: 2021-09-27 17:45:00 ---- - -> "A wise man shits, but he does not fart" -> <cite>---Confuscious</cite> - -## Cats - -Cats are actually aliens sent from a far away planet to watch over and protect us, few know this.
