Here’s about as perfect a case of correct analysis, wrong solution, as you are ever likely to get. A leading headmaster of a school has said that university lecturers are boring and have not adapted to modern teaching techniques.
Chris King, incoming chairman of the Headmasters and Headmistresses Conference (HHC) said: ‘Pupils have changed….the way they are taught…has changed. There is no good bemoaning the fact that children of today do not sit down, quietly absorb what the teacher says and write copious notes from which they then revise from……..they have different expectations of teachers.’
Well, thank you, Chris. May I suggest that it’s the schools which have got it wrong and the lecturers who have got it right? That the HHC represents private schools shows just how far the lazy, liberal rot has set in.
