Educational Conscription

Link: Educational Conscription: Pity the poor teachers.

Gse_multipart19669 If like me, you feel that someone old enough to marry, have a family or serve his country in the armed forces is old enough to make his own choices about education or training, please sign this petition. Anticipating the usual cynical comments, please understand that I know it's probably a waste of time. I agree that it will probably make no difference to a government so undemocratic that its "online consultation" on the subject offers no negative options to most of the questions!

But if I didn't believe it was better to light a candle than curse the darkness, why would I write this blog? And if you didn't believe it, why would you be reading it?
