Tarry for the Nonce

Excuse Me?

There is no reason – no reason – to permit crude language in any public setting:

A secondary school is to allow pupils to swear at teachers – as long as they don’t do so more than five times in a lesson. A running tally of how many times the f-word has been used will be kept on the board. If a class goes over the limit, they will be ‘spoken’ to at the end of the lesson.

These little tykes are in for a rude awakening when they are placed in a professional setting, where such language will be roundly condemned, costing them jobs, promotions and (potentially) relationships.

What an absurd policy!!



  1. Man, fuck that!

  3. And the gap between my Catholic schooling and my public schooling grows even wider…

  4. Wow, and I thought teachers weren’t respected enough already, especially in secondary school. Imagine what this is going to do to them. I would think that the teachers would be up in arms over this sort of thing. There’s no justification for it, even freedom of speech can be challenged on the grounds of ‘private’ property (that of the school board). At least, that was the excuse they all used for us when they enforced rules such as no males could have earrings, no wearing a hat backwards, etc.
