Have you ever wondered why peasants sometimes can be so politically apathetic? I think I have found the reason.
Recently there is a big hoo ha over at PLMGSS as students are unhappy that the principal has rejected a surprise visit by a pop band that the students have won in a contest for the school. Looking at the reply from PLMGSS, I had a sense of deja vu
Accusation 1: Are schools in
"It is not a question of flexibility or inflexibility, but of choice. There are all kinds of contests and a choice has to be made to decide which ones to take part in and which to decline”
"There is also the pupil suggestion box, focus group discussions, climate survey and pupil needs survey carried out throughout the year.
Having pupil suggestion box, focus group discussions, climate survey and pupil needs survey shows the pupils have a lot of say in the school plus they also have various platforms to hear the pupils, it’s just that no one is listening to what they have to say.
"Pupils are constantly taught that there is always a right place, right time and right way to say what they want to say. This is part of educating a generation of people who will have the right social and emotional competencies to contribute positively to the stability and progress of our
community and country. "
“Pupils are constantly taught that there is always a right place, right time and right way to say what they want to say.” And the time is not now.
So having a pop band visit your school is going to erode the right social values and emotional competencies and will lead students to contribute negatively to the stability and progress of our community and country.
Hmm… This is getting all too familiar.
