    PC gone mad yet again

    My Mrs is a teacher and was told today that they are no longer allowed to ask kids to put their hands up to answer questions as it discriminates against the kids who cant answer

    i mean WTF

    these people who make up these rules should be taken out and bloody shot

    no wonder this country is the way it is when we have ass holes in highly paid jobs making up these kid of rules so they can stay in a job

    not sure if this is a uk wide thing as it was some gov body in scotland that have implemented it

    its been a UK thing for some time Craig, Sarah says it does actually work in helping kids develop. although she does agree its a little stupid and there are times the rules just dont work.

    Sounds like Scotland are now implenting the teaching pratice.

    A teacher must pick out the child to answer. The Idea is that the brighter kids will always stick their hand up and get the answer and praise that comes with it. This then knocks the ability and confidence of the child that may well have known the answer but could be too scared to put his/her hand up.

    So although it can be seen as being PC, it is actually proactive in helping kids learn. The only down side to it is, as a teacher if you continue (in the kids eyes dont forget) to pick the same pupil over and over again, it could be perceived as bulling and or intimdation or favoritisum .... More things for a teacher to think about rather than just teaching

    I can see the backhanded logic in that....I'm surprised theyre not concerned that putting a child on the spot like that doesn't distress them if they don't know the answer though.
