"Good school, spoilt by being on a dangerous road"
A reader of a recent Guardian article in response to National Offer Day and the shortage of places in secondary schools, interestingly makes the point that “there are enough secondary places, just not necessarily at the schools people would choose” and that “A choice between a good school and a failing school is no choice at all.”
Just why are some children feeling this way? Is it something that is simply a sign of the times – maybe the drive for instant gratification, self-promotion in general and the change in attitude that seems to take the view with some that “it is cool to be dim.”
"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something."
