School gives pupils f-word limit

Pupils are being allowed to swear at one Northamptonshire secondary school - as long as they limit their use of bad language to five times a lesson.

A tally of how many times the f-word is used will be kept on the board.

Parents of children at the Weavers School in Wellingborough were told of the new policy in a letter, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The policy, which comes into effect when term starts next week, has been condemned by parents' groups and MPs.

"In these sorts of situations teachers should be setting clear principles of 'do and don't'," said Nick Seaton, chairman of the Campaign for Real Education.

'Everyday language'

But headmaster Alan Large said he had received no complaints about the policy.

"The reality is that the f-word is part of these young adults' everyday language," he told the Daily Mail.

Assistant headmaster Richard White said the policy was aimed at two classes of 15 and 16-year-olds that were particularly unruly.

"Within each lesson the teacher will initially tolerate (although not condone) the use of the f-word (or derivatives) five times and these will be tallied on the board so all students can see the running score," he wrote in the letter.

"Over this number the class will be spoken to by the teacher at the end of the lesson."

The school, which has 1,130 pupils, also plans to send "praise postcards" to the parents of children who do not swear in class.

One of my earliest jobs was working in a small office with about 6 other people.

There were two middle-aged (late 40's), woman working there who were under the mistaken belief that they ran the department.

The others working there (including myself), were in our early twenties.

The office manager was a pretty laid back guy and didn't really care what went on as long as the work was done.

Both of the woman came up with some lame ass idea about creating a "swear jar". Basically it was a large mayonnasie jar with a small note taped to it with words to the effect that anyone caught swearing had to put 10 cents in the jar evey time they swore. FWIW, these woman considered a simple "damn" a fineable offense.

When they proudly announced to us young riff-raff about their new policy I took one look at the jar and said to them "swear jar?". "Fuck that shit" and tossed 20 cents into it.

The office manager got a big chuckle out of it when the office hags complained to him about what I said
(although they didn't repeat it to him word for word).

He pretty much told them that he didn't think their idea was going to work.

Letting the inmates run the asylumn is a pretty stupid idea.

They consider "bloody" and "wanker" as swear fodder, if that tells you anything.

This is very sad on so many levels that it's depressing.

Soon - no BS - they'll allow kids to give blow-jobs in class because they're "expressing themselves."
