Subject: RE: BS: The Drugging of our Children
Not sure I agree there Mrzzy. Would you for example chose and ram down some Bartok piece I could not relate to down our throats (although it was in the O level corriculum) or have me learning singing with others? Would you rather I came the person who my teacher, Mr Harris was quoted as saying "he is the only person I have ever hoped fails his exams" or recognise that for many times in my life I have sung and if well enough would go back to being an active (Irish) session player?

I will not say my own attitude to education at many times could not of been better. I will not say that I did not go through a rebellious way that very much got in the way.

On the other hand, I might question the schools failure to properly recognise I genuinely had an interest (which has proved lasting) in music.
