School subjects

It's almost too easy to point to the multiple absurdities of the latest scheme to put Forelock-tugging and Primogeniture on the National Curriculum. Instead, I'll content myself with highlighting this strangely ageist aside from Lord Goldsmith, which is otherwise liable to be lost in the general welter of nonsensicality:

"I think a formal ceremony which marks that passage from being a student, who's learning about the theory, to a citizen, who now is practising the reality of being a citizen, I think that is a useful thing."

So students are not citizens! You heard it here first, people.
