They really don't need no education, OK?

"50,000 failed by schools," says the headline in the Evening Standard announcing another story about standards in schools. I don't doubt that the standards are broadly as they describe but I think the children should be given at least a bit of credit. I like to feel that the failing I did was largely my own lack of work and I wouldn't seek to share the credit/blame with the school I went to. Children are capable of a lack of interest in education, no matter how it is packaged and delivered, that is quite breathtaking. Respect.
