After so many decades of attempting the impossible, newspaper reports in the quality press this morning concur that previous attempts to "educate" all pupils in the country, which has been official government policy at least since 1989 if not since 1944 or even before have been quietly dropped. "It was just a chimera, a mere illusion, that all children were capable of a meaningful education within our current economic and societal limitations" boasted a triumphant government spokesperson; though on strict conditions of annonymity. "As of next Monday," s/he confirmed "fully 25% of pupils will be taken off roll." "And if current practice in many areas is sound, this figure will rise to 40% or perhaps even higher by next summer." https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politic...ts-investigate-fewer-reported-crimes-emerges/ Though I must confess that in moments of despair at the chalk-face I never thought that I would live to see this day. Hallelujah.
