Bring out the rod, for the teachers I mean

This article is from the Daily Mail here in the UK.

You can use the f-word in class (but only five times)

A secondary school is to allow pupils to
swear at teachers - as long as they don't do so more than five times in a lesson. A running tally of how many times the f-word has been used will be kept on the board. If a class goes over the limit, they will be 'spoken' to at the end of the lesson.

The astonishing policy, which the school says will improve the behaviour of pupils, was condemned by parents' groups and MPs yesterday. They warned it would backfire. read more

Hmmm, since this outstanding school is going to allow students to use the word fuck five times, and why five times? Why not three, or ten, or 25 times...why five? Anyway, since this outstanding school is going to allow the little cherubs say fuck, why stop there? I can think of a few more explicit slang words within the English language that these little darlin's could use to get their point across.

This is the last line of the article...
"As a temporary policy we are giving them a bit of leeway, but want them to think about the way they talk and how they might do better."

Talk about letting the patients run the insane asylum.
