Passing Thought On The Education System

Much has been written on this subject and comment passed on how children are taught; how 'history' has been truncated; how political indoctrination is taught in schools with benefits of membership of the EU being included.

One wonders if the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families - aka the biggest load of balls ever foisted on an electorate by a government - knows of this quotation from Disraeli:

"Whenever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education. It has been discovered that the best way to insure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery."
