More PC nonsense

Another piece of PC nonsense.  Now we are told we can't call a school a school but it has to be referred to as a 'Place of learning'

Re: More PC nonsense

Perhaps this definition of  "School" is the reason why !!!  Cheesy Grin Cheesy

Re: More PC nonsense

where I live there are three places of "Higher" education, i.e. over 11 year olds, none are called schools, up to about maybe 5 years ago they were, now they are academies or technology colleges.  and they all teach different subjects, what happened to a universal standard. 
Hard luck on the child if the want to go into a particular line of education, the council in there wisdom sends to the establishment furthest from where they live but within the none free travel boundary, then the pupils from the surrounding villages go to there nearest establishment so that they dont get free transport
