Outrage as primary school pupils taught to despise ‘milk snatcher’ Mrs Thatcher. Primary school pupils in the UK are being taught to hate Margaret Thatcher as a milk snatcher whose claim to have turned Britain around was an empty boast. Campaign for Real Education chairman Chris McGovern said “This is brainwashing, not history teaching. Sadly, the new national curriculum promotes this style of teaching since it has created an anarchic ‘free-for-all’ in what teachers choose to teach and how they teach it.”
A spokesperson for the Department for Education said “The law is crystal clear. All political discussions in school should be unbiased and balanced.”
Sure. So how did this happen? Is it even conceivable that a leftist politicians would be unfairly treated in this fashion?
