The latest piece of PC bollocks.
An education spokesman today proposed that the word 'fail' must not be used in today's schools. If a little angel does in fact FAIL an exam, it must be referred to as a 'deferred success'.
What a complete load of utter bollocks.
They are afraid that if a little angel thinks he/she is a failure, they will end up being emotionally scarred for life.
One other example of this countries attempts to completely wrap our kids in three ply cotton wool.
Aren't the poor little mites going to be allowed to experience any emotion short of being blissfully happy - permanently?
As all us of well trodden old farts know through the experience of life, it 'aint like that.
I believe that children should experience failure, losing, hurt etc. It's the only way to prepare them for this shitty world we all live in.
