A Call On Advice, A Pre-Post(Rant)uh: on Authority Figures abusing Power (and students)

Hi guys!

This is a very very quick update so that I can start researching and then post that on here.

So today started a bit down, and then went brilliant- I am still bubbling with happiness deep (DEEP) down inside, but it’s all shielded off- because I’m cross. No, I am angry. But in a go get ’em, let’s FIX this sort of way.

Why?

The level of abuse- because it has accumulated and become this- in my brothers school, is disgusting. I can say that the teachers there? Save maybe one, are scum. Including the headmistress. The methodology of the staff, academics (or lack thereof) and attitudes and treatments is…despicable. Like, I think it has gotten to the point where everyone should be sacked.

Everyone. Sacked, fired, replaced- you name it. It’s not like there’s a lack of new educators in the field here in the UK or anything.

It is that bad. Maybe I should clarify a few things- this ‘school’ I speak of, is not a mainstream or private school, it is a specialist school. For Special Needs. Anyone who has children or family members knows how hard it can be to find a place that is supposed to accommodate the children and help them learnkey skills (that they as staff were taught at Uni or College) and techniques as a side to their education to eventually cope in the world and everyday life.

It is supposed to be safe. The staff are- I dont even know where to begin. It’s like (as I spoke to a friend -a mother of a child who goes/went there) the staff all went someplace and caught stupid. They are malicious, negligent, scheming, negative, abusive, miscommunicating-on-purpose, inappropriate, danger-provoking, blasphemous, prejudiced bags of scum. I am going to do my best to make a case to take them down (and no, we are not keeping my little brother in that school- but by God, those people are not going to get away with staying as they are- and I know there’s an option where all the children if their parents think it’s so bad, can just move away- but think: some parents dont know, some dont care, some are desperate and or poor -e.g. have children who are ‘low functioning’ or have low self-esteem: think conformity, giving in to authority figures -I will post some psychology stuff up on that, by the way it’s A2 material. So it would worse case of this, have all the informed parents with higher functioning kids, pulling out their children this time, the school abomination still standing, leaving the lower funct kids at the now incensed already borderline midground abusive staff AND the new batch of kids would still be coming in to find out for themselves. Or that kid who brings in a knife will actually manage to stab someone this time. ).

God, help these children. I think some detective work is in order- and a case file to be built.

So, my last post was about Law and whether I would have the will to do it? It looks like I’ve got a case to build. Wow. Before even going to university!

I am researching and ofsted will get some letters (but one point here- the school didnt inform parents ofsted was coming so that the ones with time -or who made time because it is so bad-

Worse comes to worse? I think I’ll go to the papers.

Sad thing is my exams start next month…so…it’s going to be tough.

So, any thoughts on where to start on this?

Hi Laura, 

I’m Courtney, from Australia but not born here. I wanted to sort of ask you how you’re so comfortable with yourself and your decisions? I’m the complete opposite. I question myself with everything I do, (I’m a teenager so I understand it comes with the territory) and it gives me really low self-esteem. 

I’ve never really thought of myself as having a story, even though I’m a massive fan of books and music, and they are both full of stories.

Sorry, I’m sure you get a lot of stuff like this, I’m just curious 🙂

Thank you 🙂

Xo

Courtney,

Listen to me when I say: you, darling, incredible, open, truth-seeking warrior, are fucking awesome. Every single thing you do, every single day: that is your story. Your story is who you say hello to on the way to the school bus…
