The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

6 June 2006

Anyone for an F?

Just like it says:

A school has changed the names of its primary one classes after complaints that they left some children feeling inferior, BBC Scotland has learned.

Bonnyrigg Primary School had called its classes 1a and 1b but some parents of children in 1b said it left the youngsters feeling second best.

The classes will now be known as 1ar and 1ap, incorporating teachers' surnames in the new titles.

In reality, the a and b divisions were based on age, but apparently one's self-esteem takes precedence over one's date of birth.

I wonder when someone's going to notice that B classes in American Kennel Club performance events are actually more advanced than A classes.

Sometimes a Freudian slip is just a Freudian slip. Heh.

...and instead of spelling bees, they'll have spelling 'A's, where it's okay for the kids to spell words any way they want.
