Because Facebook Or Twitter Is The Only Place They Could Pick This Up, Right?

A primary school headteacher has warned parents about children using social media after hearing “inappropriate language” in her classrooms.
Kerry Jones has written to parents of children at Phoenix Primary School, Laindon, asking them to monitor youngsters’ online activity.
The head is worried about pupils using mobile phones, tablets and computers to visit unsuitable websites.
Because before the invention of the Internet (Thanks, Al Gore!), schoolchildren were totally oblivious to the world of profanity.

They never picked it up from parents or relatives or other schoolchildren…
Jerry Glazier, Essex general secretary for the National Union of Teachers backed Mrs Jones’s view.
Yup, you’re clearly an idiot as well, then. But I guess we had warning with the ‘NUT’ bit.
Phoenix Primary School refused to comment further on the head’s message to parents.
An appropriate name for a school destined to go down in flames.

You assume that old fashioned swearing was the point at issue.
But there is so much speech that must be repressed - racist , sexist , homophobic etc speech.
Hence the teacher needs total ontrol of the indoctriation of the children.
This is the UK way.

I was in primary school in the early 1950s and by the end of the first term Ihad a vocabulary that would make a docker blush!
I grew up in a coal-mining 'village' near Nottingham, the kids all repeated the words that they'd heard their parents using, and we used them appropriately, too!

'Inappropriate language' does not automatically mean swearing. It could mean any term that offends the politically correct.

Bill Sticker, you may be correct in that statement. It may not be that the children are using the shortened forms of 'go forth and multiply' or 'front bottom', but they might have said the words 'tranny' or 'gay' or 'foreigner' or even, pass the smelling salts, been less than complimentary to the Religion of Exploding to Pieces.

There are so many words that make the lips of thin skinned advocates of political correctness quiver, that it is more likely to be something like this rather than robust language.

I learned to swear from friends and learned that swearing was innapropriate from parents and other relatives.

Good point!

"...and we used them appropriately, too!"

The value of a good education! :D

"I learned to swear from friends and learned that swearing was innapropriate from parents and other relatives."

The 'clip around the ear' method?
