The Fuck word

You can use the f-word in class (but only five times)

What is RSS?

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.
The astonishing policy, which the school says will improve the behaviour of pupils, was condemned by parents’ groups and MPs yesterday. They warned it would backfire.

Parents were advised of the plan, which comes into effect when term starts next week, in a letter from the Weavers School in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.

Have your say » Assistant headmaster Richard White said the policy was aimed at 15 and 16-year-olds in two classes which are considered troublesome.

‘Tolerate but not condone’

“Within each lesson the teacher will initially tolerate (although not condone) the use of the f-word (or derivatives) five times and these will be tallied on the board so all students can see the running score,” he wrote in the letter

“Over this number the class will be spoken to by the teacher at the end of the lesson.”

Parents called the rule ‘wholly irresponsible and ludicrous’.

“This appears to be a misguided attempt to speak to kids on their own level,” said the father of one pupil.

Should have do’s and don’ts

Nick Seaton, chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, said: "In these sort of situations teachers should be setting clear principles of ‘do and don’t’.

"They should not be compromising in an apparent attempt to please the pupils. This will send out completely the wrong message.

“Youngsters will play up to this and ensure they use their five goes, demeaning the authority of the teacher.”

Tory MP Ann Widdecombe said the policy was based on ‘Alice in Wonderland reasoning’.

“What next?” she asked. “Do we allow people to speed five times or burgle five times? You don’t improve something by allowing it, you improve something by discouraging it.”

‘Praise postcards’

The 1,130-pupil school, which was criticised as ‘not effective’ by Ofsted inspectors last November, also plans to send ‘praise postcards’ to the parents of children who do not swear and who turn up on time for lessons.

Headmaster Alan Large said he had received no complaints about the policy. “The reality is that the fword is part of these young adults’ everyday language,” he said.

“As a temporary policy we are giving them a bit of leeway, but want them to think about the way they talk and how they might do better.”

Re: RE: The Fuck word

How about smacking your son for saying it? or smacking the person who taught them? lol

Seriously, kids are going to say it anyway. “Tolerating” it in class or not, they will. We can’t stop them. So why make a fuss out of it?

Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with “foul” (rolls eyes) language. I use it quite a bit, yet I’m not going to rob a convinience store, rape a hooker, or shoot a bitch. Soooo I don’t see what the deal it. Just words. Good descriptive words to get points across I might add. Or just novelty to use for the hell of it. I’m not saying they should be allowed in school, I just have no clue why these words are considered “dirty”. :dunno :tard
