Schools and childhood roundup


  • Re: “Britain’s Labour Party conference pledges to take over private schools”

    Nothing against the State. Nothing outside the State.

  • You can’t indoctrinate children effectively is some are outside the system.

  • “Chicago teachers’ union sends delegation on “solidarity trip” to Venezuela”

    Not quite. To crib from Hannah Leone’s article:

    “Asked on WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight” last week about “some controversy” surrounding the excursion, union President Jesse Sharkey said: “Members go all kinds of places in the summer. This was neither an official trip nor something that was funded by the union. This is a group of people who are members of the CTU who decided to go to Venezuela.””

  • Labour is now led by an unabashed socialist and effectively controlled by an group called Momentum, which while they aren’t quite as bad as Militant in the 80’s (Marxist), are far better organised.

    Normally this wouldn’t be a problem, but the Conservatives led by Boris Johnson and Tzer may, have messed up things so badly over the last three years that a Labour win not totally out of the question.
