As I progress through my twilight years I find myself in despair at the current state of the supposed education of the upcoming generations in the UK. Like many others of my era as an 11 year old and product of of the Lancashire Mill TownsI was written off at an early age as not being worthy of an education. My only value was being seen as one of the next generation of ' mill worker ' or cannon fodder for the armed forces. I recently viewed a couple of quizz programmes on TV when contestant were asked general knowledge questions. I was appalled at their replies and their overall lack of knowledge. One was asked " which London Football Club appointed so and so for a record transfer fee of M? in2018 "......answer from the contestant...Manchester United! Another contestant, a primary school teacher probably in her early 30's was asked, " D Day took place on the 6th June 1944...in which country did the Allied Armies land " ? Answer...not heard of D Day...was it somewhere in Spain....Ibiza?
I can give many more appalling examples.
GOD HELP US ALL....these folk are allowed to vote!
