Ian O'Doherty: Well, she's from the street, innit?

The education system is, successive British governments have admitted, completely knackered.

Teachers aren't allowed to teach; socialist ideologues have changed the nature of education from one of learning to one of protecting a child's esteem. And when you see the actual head of the regulatory body, Ofsted, suggest that every school should have at least one "shit" teacher to teach kids how to deal with morons, you can really see how far down the rabbit hole they have fallen.

Not that many English kids would know where that phrase comes from, of course -- Lewis Carroll being one of those figures hated most by trendy teachers: a middle-class, white man.
