Are You Smarter Than Your Kids.
Every year we are told school pupils are getting brighter as record numbers of exam passses are achieved. Every year employers complain that their new recruits, from university graduates to year ten drop outs are getting dumber. So is the education system really turning our brighter children or are the examining boards cheating?

Could you sit todays examinations and do well?

Are You Smarter Than Your Kids?

As the ongoing debate about whether exams are getting easier fades into a background buzz of people saying "rhubarb, rhubarb" until next year one TV company which has been somewhat tardy in getting its autumn schedules onto our screens had to resort to squeezing a peak time documentary from the tired controversy by getting a group of parents to sit the exams pupils have just taken.

Asking "are you smarter than your kids" is not the same as asking if exams are getting easier of course so the program falls down at once.

The fact that should concern us because it relates to the pertinent question of whether our kids are getting crap education just so the statistics can look good for the sake of the politicians is "why are more entrants passing and average grades rising each year." Empirical evidence suggests that while pupils are leaving school with truckloads of As and Bs each year many are lacking even basic reading and writing skills.

I have always had doubts about the efficacy of education and what is more the A to Z (well A to W which is near enough) of wise men are with me on that. "What we must learn to do we learn by doing," Aristotle said, while Oscar Wilde declared "nothing that is worth learning can possibly be taught." Too right. Most of what I learned at school has turned out to be totally irrelevant in real life. I recall my problems with Pythagoras' Theorem and a certain looney maths teacher called Batty Bland. All maths teachers are looney to some degree of course but in the "Stark Raving Bonkers" stakes Batty led the field by a distance.

"But what use it sir," I asked each time he tried to explain that the square of the hypotenuse does something utterly pointless and boring.

At last he gave in and tried to explain it though a practical analogy. "If you are out walking and see a tall building Thorpe, by using Pythagoras you can find out how tall it is."

I promise you, hand on heart, that while having appreciated the aesthetic qualities of many tall buildings I have never felt tempted to work out how tall they are. Never, ever!

In life, as we learn practical lessons, the academic mush of school is usually forgotten, to be replaced by things that are relevant to our lives. I was always a duffer at maths, still am. As a result of a condition possibly related to dyslexia, my mind goes blank when I am confronted with an algebraic equation and yet in my job I could solve the complex problems posed by needing to balance telecommunications traffic across a network. Quite simply that was a practical problem and I can do practical. What we have to learn to do we learn by doing.

Where modern education fails is in its focus on the narrow objective of passing exams. The purpose of education is not to force feed pupils on information so they can regurgitate it on examination day, education should tech them to want to laearn. Life is much richer if we learn constantly and for us to want to learn constantly we must be made curious.

When pupils are leaving school without their curiosity ignited then education is failing.

Selection By Stealth Or Simple Common Sense by Xavier Connolly.
The comprehensive education system has become one of the sacred cows of the "progressive left" in spite of its very obvious failure. The old Grammar School system only segregated on grounds of intelligence whereas the system now with its postcode lottery and the growth of private schools for the rich segregates on grounds of parental wealth, social class and geogrphic location. Intelligence does not enter the equation. So the selective way was more egalitarian, what are the leftie whiners on about.

More Graduates, Less Graduate Jobs
Vince Cable the coalition government's minister responsible for business and higher education has kicked off the biggest shake up in University financing in the past four decades. Since the vast and rapid expansion of higher education begun bt the Wilson government in the 1960 there has been constant growth in University funding, the number of University places available and the ...

The Pursuit Of Mediocrity by fatsally.
SATS test, introduced in 1993, were supposed to meaure a pupil's progress through the education system from junior to senior school and ensure every child was fulfilling their potential. Now we see the government constantly lowering standards in order to ensure enough pupils from each school are reaching government imposed targets.

B Sc in Stating The Bleeding Obvious.
The failure of education is not because kids are getting dumber, stuff is getting harder to learn, the internet is a distraction or parents are less co-operative. It is because education in schools is run by idioys who can't see what's staring them in the efffing face.

Killing History.
The government constantly whines that not enough pulips in their later school years take up sciences. The government itself however is pushing history off the curriculum. So as they strip the nation's young people of a sense who they are and destroy the national culture inthe name of diversity and multiculturalism can they complain if those young people feel alienated and do not wish to contribute positively to the national community.

SATS - The Science Of Dumbing Down
The government and education academics have been obsessing about SATS tests for a long time, believing intelligence can be measured by examination results. All this pseudo - scientific bullshit has achieved is a meaurable dumbing down through a teaching to test mentality in which exam results give a false impression of school leavers intelligence.

A Clockwork GCSE Exam Paper
by fatsally

Repeated complaints from bosses suggest school exams in English have become too easy. But is this true or are examiners simply testing not so much on formal grammar as English like wot it is spoke?
NVQ In Retail
University education is not for everyone. Some people are not happy in the academic environment and yearn to get into the workplace. Why are such people who have a go - getting attitude rather than a dossing around listening to Coldlay albums attitude treated so dismissively by the careers service and other government agencies then.
Lazy Pupils Guide To Exams
For years employers and concerned parents have complained that school examinations are getting easier. Politically correct thinking among education academics aims to eliminate failure. But have new plans gone a step too far

America Is Lost: Rigged election, Rigged Media, Rigged Candidate says Assange To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of Julian Assange's death were greatly exaggerated. After his web feed was cut by staff at the Ecuadorian Embassy earlier this week Assange's usual stream of tweets, leaks and posts was stilled. The web, being the web, went mad with conspiracy theories but Wikileaks themselves did not comment on the wilder speculation. Well Julian is back on Hillary's case, and this time it's more personal than ever.

The Real Humanitarian Crisis Is Not Confined To Syria
So the 'humanitarian crisis' as US politicians choose to call it when demonising Russia and claiming the war could be ended in a week if the Russians would only stop bombing civilians, is not a crisis of Russia and Syria's making and could be ended in a week if the USA and it's allies would simply stop supplying ISIS and Al Nusra Front terrorists with arms and ammunition.

Out Of Touch Elites Are Clueless About The Anger Of The Masses Towards Them
The fact is the ruling elites have failed catastrophically over the past fifty years, their economic models have proved hopelessly unrealistic and had created a global economy based on ever increasing government debt. The debts have become unsustainable, governments and organisations, (i.e. government agencies, NGOs and for profit businesses) are now borrowing money in order to be able to service their existing debts.

Quitaly? Will Italy follow Britain out of the EU?
With a referendum in Italy, ostensibly on constitutional reforms but perceived as a referendum on the leadership of the ruling elite, looming in November and the anti - globalisation, pro sovereignty Five Star Party growing in popularity all the time. Should the constitutional changes be voted down, and the against campaign is showing a comfortable lead in opinion polls at the moment, it will put a Quitaly in-out referendum, similar to the so called Brexit vote that kick off the process of Britain leaving the European Union, at the top of the agenda.

Pussy Grabber versus Lying, Money Grubbing Traitor For US President?
Yesterday, too late for this British based blog to pick up, Wikileaks released by far the most devastating leak of the campaign. In any other democratic nation this would be game over. This act of treason this betrayal of three hundred million people, is in complete violation of US electoral law and makes Trump’s dirty talk video, that US liberals have been in hysterics about, look like an episode of The Teletubbies.

Hacker Dumps Thousands Of Emails From Close Clinton Insider, Reveals Hillary's New Email Address

UN Peace Council: The Syria conflict is a proxy invasion by the United States

They, Your Husband's Victims That Is, Have Names, Hillary
"Donald, she has a name," Hillary Clinton taunted during the first presidential debate of 2016. "Her name is Alicia Machado. And she has become a U.S. citizen and you can bet she is going to vote this November." Trump missed an open goal.

FUKUS Axis Abandon Diplomacy In Push For War With Russia
The FUKUS axis (France, the United Kingdom and the USA, regular readers may recall) were never truly interested in a diplomatic solution for the conflict in Syria. Why would they be?

Situation In Syria Is Now Beyond Critical
You would have to have been living on another planet to fail to have noticed that while we have been away, the situation in Syria has deteriorated swiftly after the breakdown of a ceasefire agreed by the USA and Russia which lasted barely a week.

Migrants Consider Quitting Violent Sweden To Return To War-Zone Homelands For Safety
The Swedish ruling elite's politically correct obsession with immigrants has turned parts of this once peaceful, civilised and safe country into a lawless hell hole and borderline failed state.

The airstrikes by a US led coalition that killed many Syrian soldiers fighting for the legitimate government of Bashar al Assad against the terrorist forces of ISIS has raised the level of hostile rhetoric between the USA / NATO coalition and the Russia / China / Iran alliance.

Negative Interest Rates & The War On Cash, Part 3: "Beware The Promoters"
Bitcoin and other electronic platforms have paved the way psychologically for a shift away from cash, although they have done so by emphasising decentralisation and anonymity rather than the much greater central control which would be inherent in a mainstream electronic currency. Despite the loss of privacy, electronic currency is much favoured by techno-optimists, but not so much by those concerned about the risks of absolute structural dependency on technological complexity.

TTIP - This so -called free trade deal is a full-frontal assault on democracy
The purpose of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is not so much as to remove tariffs and other protectionist devices as to remove the regulatory differences between the US and European nations.

If This Does Not Disqualify Hillary For The Presidency, It's Hard To Know What Will
Even the conservative Wall Street Journal is waking up to the massive deception that is being perpetrated on voters by the American political establishment, media and judiciary.

Smart Phones Will Not Make Banking Safer
Yet the war on cash goes on. The latest move is to encourage people to use their smartphone to do their online banking. My first reaction on reading this was, "They're having a laugh aren't they?" laptops and tablets are ridiculously easy to hijack, smartphones don't even need to be hacked, like tired old slappers whose sexual allure has gone south, but who still crave attention, they will offer themselves without needing to be asked.
