The quote is a famous Tony Blair one.
I am interested to know what people think about education (principally in schools) and its impact on those it caters for.
Recently I have heard many people say that a child can only be taught in a school, by a teacher.
As a former pupil at a rather rough Comprehensive in Leeds, I beg to differ.
It is my firm opinion that schools - especially state schools - can only ever provide the most basic of foundations - for obvious reasons. I know that the vast majority of people who achieved at my Comprehensive were, to all intents and purposes, self-taught. Little teaching and still less learning took place within those walls.
I know that in America a fair proportion of people are home-schooled; such schooling is almost anomalous in England.
Just wondered what people thought...
