Doomed To Failure…

Pupils at primary and secondary schools across Brighton and Hove will be given “early intervention” lessons to prevent abuse.

The lessons for boys and girls from six years up will teach them not to hit, to be nice and how to build healthy relationships, as part of a £500,000 council strategy to cut domestic violence in the city.

I’d have thought that would be better spent on teaching them to read, write and add up, personally…

Of course, there has to be special favours for identity groups:

As part of the programme, £100,000 will be used to help reduce violence in black and ethnic minority groups and to help the RISE service, which serves victims of domestic violence and children.

Now, why would they need ‘special services’ in this? And do they really think that a couple of lessons of, say, half an hour each, are going to combat what they see every single day?

    Of course we all know it has nothing at all to do with reducing violence in primary schools but everything to do with keeping several Green party members/Guardian readers in work. I have family in the teaching trade and they all tell me about the special “projects” funded by the council with great awe. A small team of politically well connected but totally useless teachers no one wants near a classroom are paid a small fortune to sit on committees for a year or two. They then produce a fancy folder (sorry resource pack) which is then sent to each school. The teachers look at it for 10 minutes have a quick laugh/rant about the stupidity of it all and then bin it.

    It would be a significant achievement just to get them swearing at each other in a common language.
