By coincidence when it was released I was going through the pangs of my first teen romance!  lol

This is another great one which came out the same year -

True Love Ways ....... Buddy Holly (written as a wedding gift for his wife Elena just a few months before he died)

As for the EU - they have bigger fish to fry than concentrate on an insular nation who've decided they know better.  That's as it should be.
The fact is that they know damn well how useful this 'insular nation' actually is to them.

Let's face it.  A child learns a lot from the environment he or she lives in, well before school days.  It's not fair to blame the 'system' a lot of the time.  
I find this to be very thought provoking and something many parents would do well to take on board…

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves. If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

Perhaps we shouldn't be so reliant on 'educational systems' to shape our children, but look inwardly to what we, as parents, can teach and support at home.   Some parents (not all) seem to think that when wee Johnnie or Jennie get to be a handful, the 'teachers' will sort them out.  Nuh, uh - teachers are there to facilitate a learning environment, not to sort out problems that have stemmed from inadequate parenting.  Even when some teachers try to point out that wee Johnnie or Jennie would benefit from parental discipline, parents hold up their hands in horror.  Talk about shirking responsibility!

In fact, it sums up the British condition for me.  Always blame others and ignore spectacularly good advice re progress.  God forbid, eh?  That would involve taking a good look at oneself!  Only Trump trumps it - very sad for both nations to be dragged back in time and fighting a war that will never be won by backward thinking.

As for the EU - they have bigger fish to fry than concentrate on an insular nation who've decided they know better.  That's as it should be.  We ought to be ashamed of ourselves. It's all, quite frankly, embarrassing.

It's not incoherent or hypocritical to think that society could give every child a decent education if it wanted to...

No, but it is incoherent to criticise Corbyn for not abolishing  private schools when you sent your kids there AND you say people should be left to make their own choices. If they are abolished they can't make that choice.

And if there are no private schools then all go to state schools. You recently said most state school teachers were poor, so by your own logic, most kids would have to have poor teachers. And since you say taxes should be slashed, the government would have less to spend on such public services.

So yeh, incoherent and hypocritical

I think it is more to do with you holding incoherent opinions and acting in a hypocritical way.
It's not incoherent or hypocritical to think that society could give every child a decent education if it wanted to and on a personal level to decide to work hard to give my own children the best start I can.  Sneer all you like but i am not ever going to feel guilty about that choice. You are a very rude person by the way. Perhaps you need to go to private school and learn some manners !
