Opposition doesn’t help young minds

It is true, that the more clashing material young people use to learn the less time do they spend working within the system to improve their lives.

I’m sometimes baffled with the stuff my daughter comes up with. Some critical thinking that mainly comes from teachers.

Whilst the government has asked schools not to use anti-capitalist material, something that of course must enrage every true Labour politician, kids are caught out in the middle. The state schooled kids that is.

Teachers with strong believes can muddle with pupils’ minds. That’s why it is important that parents talk to their kids. Because only through talking can we see what is going on in their minds.

My daughter came up with stuff that a teacher kept on talking about women’s lib in the context of her lessons. Masking everything into the enslavement of women. That sets a tone.

The latest one is that prisons should spend more money on prisoners. Young people can be influenced in all sorts of ways and often, taken by itself, a lot of arguments make sense to a young person.

Young people are often pre-occupied by fairness for everyone and giving equal chances. Anybody driving that agenda on social media gets a lot of young followers instantly.

That’s probably the curse of state-school pupils, the equality agenda. Whilst kids in private schools come from a wealth creation background, state pupils often come from a search for equality background.

That of course creates a clash in the long run.
