Well, when I went to school the standard of teaching was low, and I never felt like I was learning anything... most of what I know now, is from my own research AFTER school.
I didn't learn much Geography in Geography... (we tended to drink tea a lot) I didn't learn much history in History ... and as for science? Don't make me laugh! The only lessons that I felt I was learning just something in, was English, and a lot of my English projects seemed to be twisted into History!
So, I don't think it is too much of a sensation headline... I went to school with idiots, with teachers that didn't seem to care about what was going in, so long as the student won the school football game it didn't matter.
Just my own experience and observations.
