Time For A Major Overhaul Of Britain’s Education System!

Once again we are shown how the education system in Britain is failing our youth. It’s no wonder we have so many unemployed young people when many school-leavers cannot read or write properly, as is so often reported. News out today indicates that in a grand survey of the education systems of 76 countries, Britain comes twentieth!

When the system in countries like Estonia (7), Poland (11), Vietnam (12) and Slovenia (18) are far better than our own its time to start making some major changes. It should not come as a surprise that countries in the Far East have the best records for education. The top European nation is Finland that comes sixth.

Up to the 1950’s we had one of the best education systems in the entire world. In that time we produced world leading scientists, doctors, theoretician’s and inventors etc. but compare that to today and you get zilch! Remember also that it was without all the fancy computers they have today!

What happened? Education system changes by various governments have brought down the levels to such an extent that anyone leaving school today hasn’t got a cat in hell’s chance of finding meaningful employment.

A large majority of the teaching staff cannot answer a pupils question without referring to the lesson book because they do not know their subject properly. I hope the exceptions will forgive me!

On top of that, exams have become ridiculously easy thanks to Tony Blair and his government dumbing down the pass rates, and to top it all off, the English education system is bending over backwards to accommodate immigrants. For crying out loud, what is our government doing?

Muslims In British Schools - English! English! English!

There should be one single curriculum for every school in the country as in the old days, and if an immigrant can’t speak English then he/she should be told to learn, not given classes in his/her language! There was a report some months ago about a school introducing translation computers that would translate what the teacher said, and questions from immigrants who did not speak the language. How ridiculous is that!

Wrong David! Very Wrong!

We should do away with all these silly ‘Free Schools’ begun by Cameron and his government, we should do away with all the Islamic schools and tell these people that if they want their children to learn things in Arabic they do it on their own time! This is Britain, and you either conform or get the hell out!

There should be one curriculum based on the 1950’s model for everybody, and one special school like the old grammar schools for those who pass the entrance exam (11 Plus) on their way to university. The government needs to get rid of all the computers in schools until the final year so that children learn to develop and use their minds, not just which button to push.

It is very sad for people of my generation to see the desperate decline of British values in today’s world. I am just glad that I have seen the Best of Britain and am not having to cope with the demoralized system we have today. If things keep going the way they are, in the future our once proud nation will become no better than a third world country in today’s fast-moving society.

After this rant I feel somewhat better!
