Boys And Girls Or “Genderqueer”?

"Right, Now Get This Into Your Heads. You Are Not Boys And girls Anymore You Are Genderqueer"

“Right, Now Get This Into Your Heads. You Are Not Boys And Girls Anymore You Are Genderqueer”

I have just read the biggest load of tripe I have come across in years. The U.K. government-funded ‘Educate and Celebrate’ Organisation has introduced a new rule where schools cannot call children as young as seven a boy or a girl as part of a major diversity drive.

It suggests terms such as ‘genderqueer’ and ‘panromantic’ – used to describe someone who is attracted to people of all gender identities. A book about to be released is described by the publishers as “the first book to explain medical transitioning for children aged seven and above”. 

Ellie Barnes, Educate and Celebrate founder, described the book as ‘much needed’. She said: “Not everyone identifies as male or female – that is fact.” Backed by Ofsted, the publishers have sent out the book called ‘Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity?’ which features a fictional story about a 12-year-old boy transitioning from male to female. This book has been sent to 120 ‘best practice’ schools and suggests new terms to address young children.

Former Conservative Party chairman Lord Tebbit, told a Sunday newspaper: “I think it is damaging to children to introduce uncertainty into their minds.” I have to say I agree wholeheartedly.

I have to ask, where do these people come from? The world has changed to such an extent that people can come up with the most ludicrous ideas and they get accepted by the rank and file. Is the world going crazy or what?

People who come up with these stupid ideas belong in a mental asylum, plain and simple! Do they mean to make all future generations transgender or what? The mind boggles!

Great Britain – No! Barmy Britain

If you were never quite sure if the British were really barmy, then confirmation has just arrived.

Manor Park Pupils

Manor Park Primary School in Aston, Birmingham has just bought 230 of its children a translation computer because 60% of the 364 pupils attending the school cannot speak English.

The school has been flooded with immigrant children who do not speak a word of English, and are unable to communicate with their teachers or other pupils, hence this dramatic step. The school pays an annual bill of £700 for the software which of course comes from everyone’s taxes. Comments on the article, which appeared in the Mail Online are to say the least not very complimentary.

Ethnic Pupils in English Schools

Most people have the same opinion as I; if these children cannot speak English they have no right to be in an English school. English schools are for English speaking children and should not pamper to the mass of immigrants that are flooding into the country.

During the many years I lived in Holland free language schools had been set up by the government for immigrants to learn the Dutch language, and thus help them integrate into Dutch society. This is also true of other European nations. My own wife went to such a school and within a few weeks could speak very good Dutch.

So why has such a system not been introduced into England?

In my opinion it should be a requirement for all immigrants to attend free classes set up by the government to teach them the basics of the English language before they can apply for a job, or in the case of children, go to school.

Translation Programme at work

At the Manor Park School children communicate with their teacher and other pupils by typing into the translation computer which has 25 different languages in the software.

But I have to ask, how can a teacher successfully teach a class when every word he/she utters must go through a translation programme (95% accuracy)so the children can understand what he/she is saying. The reverse is true of course, for the pupils must also type into the computer any questions they have for the teacher.

It must be obvious to anyone that this is not fair to those 40 or so percent who are, or do speak English because they are substantially held back by the sixty or so percent that do not.

Jason Smith Head Teacher

Head Teacher Jason Smith has described the system as an invaluable tool rather than a replacement for teaching English, but to my mind, it will not give children from immigrant backgrounds the incentive to learn the language, especially when their parents show no inclination to learn it either.

This is one of the main reasons why immigrants from whatever country tend to live in close communities which gives them the feeling they are still living on their ‘home soil’ even if it is in a foreign land.

Architects of Multi-Cultural Britain

It was the great plan of the New Labour Party, with the traitors Tony Blair and Co. who decided unilaterally to turn Britain into a multi-cultural society, but look at the mess we are in now.

Is the country soon to be broken up into diverse cultures and languages with the great majority of the population not being able to communicate among themselves?

This sort of pampering to immigrants must stop NOW before the clock is turned back 3,000 years and the country disintegrates into tribes once again.

The latest figures from the Education Department show that a total of 910,610 pupils in English schools do not have English as their first language, an increase of 42,750 over 2009.

Tower Hamlets - Muslim Enclave

In the Tower Hamlets Borough of London, a Muslim enclave, 78% of the inhabitants have little or no English, the highest in the UK, and the sad thing is, they don’t care, and don’t wish to learn the language of their adopted country.

This in itself is a scandal and should not be tolerated by ethnic Britons or the British government. Every foreign child and foreign born parent MUST be made to learn the language of the country they have chosen to live in, OR LEAVE! It’s as simple as that, otherwise the whole fabric of the English nation will at some time in the future be torn apart. I know I am far from alone in my opinions, for very many people in Britain feel the same and it is certain that at some time in the future there will be a reckoning such as the world has never seen.

Other European countries, and especially America, would do well to heed the warning of what is happening in Britain today, for some day they will find themselves in the same boat unless appropriate action is taken.

Its Not Mi Falt I Carnt Spel!

Posted in English Schools, Primary Education, Primary Schools with tags , , , , , , on 20/06/2009 by floroy1942

Sum Englysh peeple tooday just carnt spel if there lives dipended on it! And gess wot, exkuses are beeing mayd for them by the peeple whu do the teeching. A lekturer from one of Britans universatys has gon so far as to say wee shud even akcept sum wurds that ar speled badli as an alturnativ speling.

I’m sorry I just can’t keep this up, it goes against every fibre of my body to write so badly. I often read the comments people send in on news stories when browsing the Internet news pages, and I am appalled and shocked when I see the level of illiteracy exhibited by so many writers, and I am not talking about children, but adults.

What is more, it distresses me no end to see the steady decline in written English standards over the decades. It has come to a point now where the majority of people who speak and write good English are foreigners who have English as a second language.

There is currently an article in the Times Educational Supplement written by a Ken Smith, a criminology lecturer at Buckinghamshire New University where he states that commonly misspelled words should be accepted as they are, such as ‘judgment’ for judgement, or ‘truely’ for truly.

In his view, Universities should accept the misspelled words as a viable alternative to the correct one, including all the exceptions to the ‘i’ before ‘e’ rule. My advice chum, stick to criminology!

This basic rule has been around for aeons in the English education system and has withstood the test of time. It is well known there are exceptions to this rule, and for this reason the government of all people is urging schools not to teach it any more.

Bethen Marshall, a senior English lecturer at King’s College London has said; “if you change it and say we won’t have this rule, then we won’t have any rules at all, then spelling, which is already terribly confusing, becomes even more so”. The government document, called Advice for Spelling’ (or should that be ‘Advise for Speling?) has been issued for ‘under-11’s as part of the National Primary Strategy.

This document advises other methods of teaching children spelling, like, would you believe, studying TV listings for compound words!?!?! If the government cannot get its act together, how on earth can they expect the teaching profession, which has been failing students for decades, to pull its collective socks up!

Westminster Endowed Church of England Primary School in Stroud has now gone so far as to stop giving its pupils spelling lesson homework because “the children find it so distressing”. Gloucestershire County Council, responsible for the school, said; “it was entirely up to the school to decide if they wish to use spelling lists”. Its statement went on to add; “It is important to recognise the strengths a variety of approaches can bring”. ‘Atchooo!’ Sorry I just sneezed, I’m allergic to bullshit!

I know personally many Germans, Danish, Romanians, Spanish, Dutch and Italians (Well-a maybe-a not-a the-a Italians-a) who speak, read, write, and spell, better than the average English person! Hell! Even some Americans speak better English than the English! Sorry guys and gals, just kidding!

The decline in standards has gone down to the extent that a government report last year stated, 4 out of every 5 children leaving school could not read and write properly.

We are talking about the English language here, the most widely spoken international language on the planet, and England, its birthplace.

The question is, can this problem be fixed? I am afraid the answer appears to be, no definitely not! Part of what is happening is due to the increasing influence allowed, and in some cases encouraged by the government and schools, of the immigrant population.

Some schools reported recently requests to go over to teaching in a foreign language such as Turkish or Hindu, because of the high number of Turkish or inversely, Indian or Pakistani pupils. Why in the name of Heaven should an English school, in England, teach the National Curriculum in a foreign language? It is just too bizaar to believe.

The losers in all this have to be the native English children who are being marginalised in favour of the immigrant population. This is one of the great tragedies of Britain today, but no-one seems to have the eyes to see it.

I firmly believe, and have often stated, that all immigrant children who come to Britain, must learn the language of their adopted home. Britain is the only country in the world that is turning its entire culture and beliefs over to new arrivals. Yes, there is justification for the immigrant population to retain their own culture and languages, but only so long as it does not affect or influence British culture.

Another reason why I think the decline cannot be reversed is simply there are few teachers capable of instructing the pupils in the correct use of the language, and the national curriculum doesn’t provide for better teaching methods. Standards have degraded to such a low level over such a long period of time that many of the educators are lost. The only way forward is to bring back the National Curriculum of 50 years ago, and perhaps, bring all the teachers of that era out of retirement. The only other alternative is to ship all our school age children to Germany, Holland or Denmark to learn the language! It’s all so very sad!
