Kinda interesting .. blew it at the end tho'. What he refers to as "sloppy, politically correct mush" is actually stuff life Personal Finance Education (i.e. learning the difference between a store card and a credit card - about 10% *boom-boom* - and how to calculate APR) and making PSHE/Citizenship mandatory (thereby creating engaged, active young citizens - y'know, the kind that elected Obama?). It's not the total baloney as he makes it sound, using the oh-so lazy 'politcally correct' tag. Britain's education system is far from perfect but it's a step in the right direction to be getting away from SATS (borrowed from the USA, thanksverymuch but no thanks), unfortunately moving away from the manifesto pledge of 'personalised learning' (now a foramlly disavowed dirty word) ultimately getting to a point that allows teachers to actually *gasp* teach. Skool givs u brane dammidge.
