Even the Brits

Nice to know someone's bitching about what kids do or do not learn -- in some other country, in this case a story about the U.K.

According to the story:
Research shows the majority of trainee teachers have no idea what they are supposed to be teaching in the unpopular classes.
The findings signal the latest nail in the coffin for the Government’s ­disastrous education policy. Critics have dismissed the citizenship lessons as “politically correct nonsense”.
 And my favorite part:
The survey revealed 15 per cent of trainee teachers believed there were no specifically British values. Another 42 per cent were not sure what they were. Some identified them as tolerance, respect, fair play, politeness, sense of humour, stoicism and being reserved. Negative responses included snobbery and xenophobia.
