'Sick note culture'

Gosh, start fining parents for taking their children on holiday during term time, and sickness rates mysteriously go up. Criminy.

It is ridiculous. Deny and they go anyway. It's not as if parents haven't already booked the holiday before applying for leave.

There are moves afoot to potentially change the way we see education. If chidren had their own "education intranet" (as is proposed by the government), and could download videos of lessons (as one Uni is bringing in, apparently), would we start to see the emergence of an "education on demand" system?

Probably not :)
