As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you

July 23, 2008

The last couple of paragraphs in this Times Ed. article about engaging working class lads at school caught my eye:

Another school had success with boys after asking a group that was being rewarded with cakes for doing well why it was predominantly made up of girls.

One girl said: “It's not that boys are not clever. They mostly are, but they need quick results. You just have to be showing them the cakes.”

I wonder at which point the Ofsted folks wandered into the Aperture Science laboratory?
