I Should Have Gone Into Counselling...

...I'd have obviously made a fortune. There's clearly a great need for it.

But what kind of children need counselling after this:
Children at a top Sussex private school have been offered counselling after a porn movie appeared on an interactive whiteboard during a lesson.
You're having a laugh! Right?

Nope:
A teacher at the £11,200-a year-school accidentally beamed the blue film, featuring "adult sexual activity", into the classroom full of eight and nine year olds.

The teacher, who had previously taken the computer home, has not been dismissed from the posh Pennthorpe School in Rudgwick, West Sussex.

But the kids who saw the graphic video have been offered psychiatric support.
*sigh*

When I first read this I noted that the scrfeening probably lasted a few moments. The film wasn't played through fully, but maybe the counsellors are going to make things worse by going on and on and on and on and on about it.

Wasn't there another report a while back that said often counselling made things worse?

I'm sure the counselling community made sure that didn't get the headlines!

Every cloud eh?

Sounds like the teacher was just living up to the school's motto: Putting the fun into fundamentals

I dont believe it, In my day there would have been a few titters and that would have been it. Big deal Counselling? What the fuck do they need counselling for? |This is all part of the litigious society They fear the parents coming after them if their little ones ask for a blue movie

I expect market forces - such as consumer sovereignty - will soon take command at this particular school.

The headteacher here might try to tough it out, but I think that either Mister Chips will have had his come September, or there'll be a mighty small Year Five at Pennthorpe School.

Freud: I know that yesterday's whiteboard was very confusing for the entire class....
8 year old: Not really, what didn't you understand?

There was indeed.

"Sounds like the teacher was just living up to the school's motto: Putting the fun into fundamentals"

Lol!

"This is all part of the litigious society They fear the parents coming after them..."

That may well have been the major factor.

You may be right.

"8 year old: Not really, what didn't you understand?"

Very likely!
