‘British values’

A trip to Otto’s classroom gave me a disturbing insight into what is happening to Government controlled education. Imagine what a class of five and six year olds make of this poster on their classroom wall:

British‘ values. Just British?

Union Jack motif. In the run up to Brexit?

Democracy, Mutual Respect, Individual Liberty…….  Meaningful concepts for six year olds?

i was perplexed, and fuming that this ‘nice’ Dulwich primary could be so doctrinaire  all was explained by Kate when I got home  this is not the school, but rather Southwark Council, implementing government policy
