"School" Too Negative In Sheffield

Cultural Marxism, more popularly known as political correctness, has reached a zenith in the Sheffield, England where officials at a primary school have decided that the word "school" is too negative and will instead call the facility a "place of learning."

"We decided from an early stage we didn't want to use the word 'school'," she told local newspaper the Sheffield Star.

"This is Watercliffe Meadow, a place for learning. One reason was many of the parents of the children here had very negative connotations of school.

"Instead we want this to a be a place for family learning, where anyone can come.

"We were able to start from scratch and create a new type of learning experience. There are no whistles or bells or locked doors. We wanted to de-institutionalise the place and bring the school closer to real life."

Local MP Richard Caborn questioned the decision to drop the word school from Watercliffe Meadow's title. "I'm always open to new ideas but the reality is education is about preparing young people to live in the real world," he said.

"I just don't think the case has been made to drop the word school to a place of learning. I don't know why they have done it."

Have I said today already that you can't make this stuff up?
