Fury at Too-Soft Primary Schools

Horror at record results

Primary school pupils are bracing themselves for a scolding after record numbers reached national curriculum standards in English and mathematics.

Britain's education secretary and prime justification for entomophagy, Michael Gove, is expected to see the results as evidence that education standards have fallen and that children are not being compelled to learn enough Latin, Greek and Bible studies.

Elizabeth Truss, a female junior minister and co-author of a pamphlet about the laziness of British workers, congratulated pupils, teachers and families but said that teacher quality needed improvement and discipline needed to be strengthened.

Ms Truss is a token female in the Conservative Party, where discipline is generally regarded as a moral necessity for little people and an optional sex kink for parliamentary expenses claimants.

A spokesbeing for the Department of Gove emphasised that test results are not always comparable and that no information for some assessments was available for previous years, even if the Government had any interest in using statistics for non-mendacious purposes.

    Now there's a problem we here in America have never had to face. We're far more concerned about what's the minimum age for tasering children and which minor infractions can result in a brief prison stay, learning how to make shivs and work a call center.

    Didn't he call the teachers plebs?

    That can wait until the police sacked from front-line duty are called upon to volunteer as teaching assistants along with all those Afghanistan veterans. Then we'll find out what class war really means.
