That's such a shame!
I watched that show where British kids went to a school in the 60's. They were pretty severe about language there IMO. Did weakend so much?
I could write an essay on attending a Girl's Grammar school then.There was no individuality allowed, they were extremely strict on uniform and
definitely no mixing with the boys from the School next door. They were let out at a different time so never the two would meet!!
It was very different to today. We were terrified of breaking the minutest rule (being caught without your beret on earned you detention, eg :rolleyes: )
But, academically, I think we were streets ahead of today. Grammar, spelling and handwriting were rammed down our throats, but I've never forgotten it.
The difference today is you are taught to think for yourself, we just learned reams of facts.
Not that my Latin O Level has ever been in the slightest use to me.
I am a walking "Living History" Just think, there were no calculators even, and computers were unheard of except for a few massive ones that had been assembled as prototypes. They usually took up a whole room.
