Anxiety ‘haunts primary schools’
Primary school children and their parents are suffering from “deep anxiety” about modern life, according to a study of education in England.
The Cambridge-based Primary Review’s report said the pressure of Sats tests dominated the last two primary years.
Researchers ran 87 discussions with groups of children, parents, teachers and others; 750 people took part.
The government said most children lived in better conditions than 10 years ago and rejected criticism of testing.
“Today’s children, it was generally felt, are being forced to grow up too soon, and the prospects for the society and world they will inherit look increasingly perilous,” the report said.
Among those quoted in the Primary Review report are children themselves.
Many expressed concern about climate change, global warming and pollution, the gulf between rich and poor, and terrorism.
“The children were no less anxious about those local issues which directly affected their sense of security – traffic, the lack of safe play areas, rubbish, graffiti, gangs of older children, knives, guns,” the report said.
“Some were also worried by the gloomy tenor of ‘what you hear on the news’ or by a generalised fear of strangers, burglars and street violence.”
But the report added: “Where schools had started engaging children with global and local realities as aspects of their education they were noticeably more upbeat.”
The children thought the Sats tests were “scary” but felt the results informed people about how they were doing.
This is an outrageous and vile article.
This is why.
People are anxious about many things, including but not limited to:
- the prospect of unending war
- dangerous vaccines
- violence in schools
- their children being fingerprinted like cattle
- id cards and the database state
- exponential growth of bureaucracy
- swingeing taxes
- the EU impinging on British sovereignty
- immigration from the EU
- the police state
- CCTV watching you 24/7 (would make ANYONE anxious)
- the total erosion of privacy
- mad scientists creating life
- Neu Labour
- Tony Bliar
- Gordon Brown
- Jack Straw
- Jacqui Smith
- John Reid
- David Blunkett
- Charles Clarke
all of this and more combine to make life in Britain so unpleasant that one third of people are desperate to leave the country. And yes, I DO mean ’emigrate’.
Even in the days of Margaret Thatcher, who was disliked in many quarters, her wrongs were not enough to trigger the en masse flight of the British from their own country.
That is how bad it REALLY is.
We read above that that children were consulted. On the one hand, people complain that children are not allowed to be children, but then they use them in consultations when they have no business doing so. Children are consulted about everything as if they were adults; you cannot have it both ways.
As for the fear about climate change, global warming and pollution, the gulf between rich and poor, and terrorism, the BBC is absolutely culpable in spreading the irrational fear of climate change and the global warming hoax. They have damaged children with these absurd bedtime stories and it is they that have pumped this fear into children. The same goes for ‘terrorism’; the BBC is absolutely guilty of spinning and boosting ‘terrorism’ and the fear boosting ideas surrounding it until they have reached a fever pitch. The reality is that ‘the threat of terrorism’ is not bigger now than it was when the IRA was operating, and the chances of you being affected directly by it are astronomically small. The real threat is the loss of our liberty…. But you know this.
The BBC is one of the greatest boosters of anxiety in this country, followed closely by Mad Murdoch’s lie empire and Neu Labour. It is indicative of their unmitigated gall that they put this ‘slow news day’ story on their front page, when they are one of the main culprits.
Anxiety is a state of mind. If everyone is repeatedly shown only the downside of everything then this is what the currency will be. If no one is allowed to see the entire picture and their place in it, they will feel small, marginalized and powerless (which is exactly what BBQ/HMG/NWO desire). This state of mind, on a mass scale, can be engineered for a time, and that is precisely what the BBC has been doing for over a decade. The BBC is a major cause of this anxiety, it is they who are a major factor in the terrorizing and destroying of The British State of Mind®.
Americans, as I have said so many times, have the ability to get out of deep ruts, and this is why Ron Paul has such a great amount of momentum. The spell is breaking in America, thanks the words and deeds of one honest man; people in that beleaguered land are tired of living like grey pieces of clay thrown on the devil’s potters wheel. Even the controlled press, feeling the surge and for whatever reason (not wanting to be on the wrong side of history or pure enlightened self interest) are starting to get behind Congressman Paul.
Could the same thing happen in Britain? That really isn’t the question. The question is, will there be anyone left here to make it happen.
