crackdown on racist and homophobic name-calling in schools.

Kids have been calling other kids names since the beginning of time.
Sometimes it gets out of hand and adults need to step in.
In today’s world, there’s bullying that gets so bad that some teens have been driven to suicide.  A subject for a future post.

But this bit of name calling by tiny tots (some of them) doesn’t seem to be the crime of the century. What is certain though is that there sure is a bit of serious indoctrination afoot.  That’s what I think when I see a line in a story like this one.

“lessons that teach children about the importance of diversity”

That line just stood out from almost everything else in the article.

That’s our world and that is what the kiddies will grow up conditioned to. And they will pass it on like Moses returning with the ten commandments.
OFSTED btw, stands for Office for Standards in Education.

Oh btw and for the record.
I have not changed my thinking on the subject since forced busing and integration in the USA all those years ago.  I won’t change on this diversity and multi culture crap either.

(see comments after the article)

Take a look.


Ofsted: schools failing to stamp out offensive name-calling

Teachers are failing to fully crackdown on racist and homophobic name-calling in schools despite mounting concerns over bullying, according to Ofsted.
By Graeme Paton, Education Editor

Pupils are often being allowed to get away with “derogatory” language in playgrounds and the classroom by using insults based on disability, race, religion, family circumstances and sexuality, it was claimed.
In a report, the watchdog said children in primary and secondary schools regularly admitted to using words such as “gay”, “spaz” and “slag” to offend classmates.
Some children reported copying phrases from television or mimicking the behaviour of parents, inspectors found.
But Ofsted warned that many staff failed to pick up on slurs, dismissed them as harmless jokes or lacked the confidence to properly challenge pupils. In some cases, teachers even dismissed racist terms as “banter”, said Ofsted.

Inspectors recommended the introduction of new rules to ensure all teachers “consistently and firmly” clamp down on “aggressive language”, including lessons that teach children about the importance of diversity.

The report – based on inspections of 56 primary or secondary schools – told how some schools went to extreme lengths to stamp out bullying, particularly insults linked to homophobia.
One primary school encouraged pupils to behave in a “non-gender-stereotypical way”, with infant boys dressing in girls’ clothes from the dressing-up box or wearing their hair in ribbons.

A six-year-old at the school chose to wear a “tutu all day without comment from his peers”, other boys preferred “cheerleading to football” and all 10- to 11-year-olds learned about gay role models such as actor Sir Ian McKellen and rugby player Gareth Thomas in lessons, it emerged.

Another small infants school with large numbers of parents in same-sex relationships attempted to create an “open-minded” atmosphere by appreciating that “a boy may prefer to be known as a girl and have a girl’s name and similarly a girl may have a girl’s name but wants to dress as and be a boy”, said Ofsted.

Susan Gregory, Ofsted’s director of education and care, said schools had a duty to promote a “positive culture so all pupils learn in a happy and safe environment”, adding: “This report shows many examples where action to tackle bullying has been very effective and I hope this best practice can be emulated by other schools.”

The study – entitled No Place for Bullying – was based on formal discussions with 1,357 pupils and almost 800 staff.
It found that pupils in all of the schools “could give a range of examples of disparaging language that they heard in school”. The use of the word “gay” was the most common put-down, often taken to mean “rubbish”.

But Ofsted warned that staff “often said that they did not hear any of this type of language in a typical week”, while others dismissed slurs as a joke, even when they were based on racism.
“Less frequently, this apparent acceptance that derogatory language was ‘just banter’ was also applied to racist terms or to ones related to disability,” inspectors said. “For example, a teacher wrote that they heard ‘occasional racist remarks but it may be banter between friends’.”

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
