Sound and Fury

Signifying nothing

Here’s your common sense textbook

The world would be a better place if more things could be taught. If every schoolchild had classes in pride in their heritage, desire to do well and be a member of society, curiosity about the world outside and common sense, then those schoolchildren would be worldbeaters. Every single one.

The point is that people have to realise that these things are not taught. You cannot sit pupils down and  make them want to be a member of society. Educators and syllabus setters have to understand this. The most important things you learn at school are learnt indirectly.

This is a theme I will expand upon more when I have more time and a lower blood alcohol level…
