Telegraph: Hundreds of schools have banned their teachers from marking in red ink in case it upsets the children.
They are scrapping the traditional method of correcting work because they consider it “confrontational” and “threatening”. Pupils increasingly find that the ticks and crosses on their homework are in more soothing shades like green, blue, pink and yellow or even in pencil. Traditionalists have condemned the ban sweeping classrooms as “absolutely barmy”, “politically correct” and “trendy”.
What pussies. This is the kind of stuff that will bring about America’s demise. Our political leaders are so concerned with being politically correct, they are so open-minded, that their brains leak out of their heads. Soccer moms liberals are ruining this country. In case red ink upsets the children? IT’S SUPPOSED TO! Your shit is wrong, kid. Quit being a stupid lazy piece of crap, put down the XBox controller, and fucking study.
We coddle our kids too much. Even CNN agreed. And that author is about as liberal as they come. This is something that better not make its way across the pond.
