As some of you may know, I teach Physical Education. The kids are mainly aged 12 to 18 years.
Today I found a letter on my desk when I went into work; The letter was from the department of education. Obviously I canâ€™t share the letter with you, but the jist of the letter was as follows.
We are considering removing competitive sports from the curriculum. We are doing this because some children who are not so good at sports may suffer cytological problems by being made feel inferior to the children who are good at sports.
Whatâ€™s next, abolish mathâ€™s exams, just incase the children who are not so good at mathâ€™s feel inferior?
Has the world gone mad? Or do you agree that being competitive is to the detriment of society.
I DO NOT want to see this thread deteriorate into political arguments or flaming.
