Message The tragic Death of a Catholic Teacher and State & Faith Schools

State and faith schools are homes of racism, knife and gun cultures, anti-social behaviour drug addiction, binge drinking, high divorce rate, teenage pregnancies and abortion and incivility. I was shocked and disgusted to hear about the sad stabbing of a teacher by a fifteen years old student in a Catholic college in Leeds. She died because of her injuries. The teacher stabbed to death in a Leeds school was widely viewed as inspirational. Let's remember how important this is.This poor woman was tragically murdered in front of her students. A truly tragic event. Death can claim you when it is least expected. The thought alone reduces my ego tremendously. Rest in Peace Anne Maguire. My thought was what on earth had happened to someone who is described as a nice middle class 15year old boy to make him do such a dreadful thing people will now be baying for his blood like a pack of hunting dogs, despite him been a child, but something went badly wrong in his life and someone must have been responsible for that.

What sort of shit hole country is this? Teachers are abused on a daily basis in this society and something needs to be done. An ex teacher gave a depressing nap shot of the reality of daily life in modern British schools. Modern education is rubbish: Idealistic young teacher Robert Peal says his experience with children at a Birmingham comprehensive led to him losing faith in Britain's schools system. Children today are a product, or a by-product of society. They are responding to what they see in the media and also what is taught at schools. Violence, Gangs, War, Destruction, Money, Stealing, Celebrities, Governments, Control, Aggression, Intimidation, Fame and Fortune, An Angry Society. Citizenship teaches children about all these things as well, possibly before they are ready or capable to understand the complex subjects properly. They respond to what they are exposed to. We have had government after government that have continued the nonsense of political correctness. From dumbing down subjects and exams to behaviour and lack of discipline. So many surveys are showing that it's harming children, it's harming the results they get. And it absolutely has to be harming UK society when they become adults. Talk to any member of the public and we've known this has been going on for many, many years, but yet, we have these repeated useless governments that pander to political correctness. These minority idiots in government (and teachers unions) think they know best and their views are in opposition to the majority of the public. We can't even sack an under performing teacher! Absolute madness. When Ofsted was introduced just over 25 years ago, everyone was at pains to tell the children and parents that no one was looking at the children, it was the school and its teachers who were being inspected. This caused a paradigm shift in general attitude towards educational establishments. Suddenly, if children didn't achieve it was perceived that it could never be the child's fault, it must always be because they were not being taught properly! It became a big stick to beat teachers with and successive governments have systematically denigrated a once proud, respected and able profession ever since. Not surprising that many of the highly qualified professionals that I know have left the profession and often replaced with lower qualified, cheaper, alternative 'bodies in the classroom'. Kids need discipline. You take that power away from teachers and this is what you get.

Britain has a broken society. This is a dark portrait but it is very true. Children are left to rot and they grew into animals. Binge drinking, drug addiction, a culture of disrespect and antisocial behavior, teenage pregnancies and abortions, knife and gun culture are part and parcel of every day life in all big city centers. The teenage pregnancies and the sheer madness of sex education teach nothing about morality. British society is suffering from unprecedented social decay and societal breakdown, according to the Children¿s Society shocking evidence. Britain has more broken families than other countries. British children are rougher with each other, and live more riskily in terms of alcohol, drugs and teenage pregnancies. Britain's rate of teenage pregnancy is the highest in Western Europe. According to official figures, nearly half of all babies are now born out of wedlock. They are more likely to suffer social, mental and emotional problems. The reason they carry the weapons in the first place is that they feel no one is there to protect them in the first place. I think Jack Straw needs to instil British Values into these childre

The demand for Muslim schools comes from parents who want their children a safe environment with an Islamic ethos. Parents see Muslim schools where children can develop their Islamic Identity where they won't feel stigmatised for being Muslims and they can feel confident about their faith. Muslim schools are working to try to create a bridge between communities. There is a belief among ethnic minority parents that the British schooling does not adequately address their cultural needs. Failing to meet this need could result in feeling resentment among a group who already feel excluded. Setting up Muslim school is a defensive response. State schools with monolingual teachers are not capable to teach English to bilingual Muslim children. Bilingual teachers are needed to teach English to such children along with their mother tongue. According to a number of studies, a child will not learn a second language if his first language is ignored.

British society must learn to respect and tolerate those who are different. God has created diverse human beings to live in this tiny global village of one family. Creation by its very nature is diverse with different species, different communities, different cultures and languages. These differences represent the beauty and wonder but diversity is sometimes not fully appreciated, resulting in all sorts of clashes. The British society and Establishment must learn to respect and accommodate others, as if in a family. A report by the Institute for Community Cohesion found that native parents were deserting some schools after finding their children out numbered by pupils from ethnic minorities. Schools in parts of England are becoming increasingly segregated. The study focused on 13 local authorities. Many of the schools and colleges are segregated and this was generally worsening over recent years. This is RACISM because British society is the home of institutional racism. A study by Bristol University reveals that a high level of racial segregation in Oldham schools and tension between communities resulted in recent riots in 2001. The solution is that those schools where Muslim children are majority, may be designated as Muslim community schools. The native parents do not want their children to be educated along with migrant children. As soon as they find that the number of other children are on the increase, they remove their children to those schools where native children are in majority.

You better teach your children in your own schools and let migrant communities teach their children according to their needs and demands. British Establishment and society should concentrate on the evils of their own society and stop trying to change the way of life of Muslims. Muslim community does not want to integrate with the British society, indulging in incivility, anti-social behaviour, drug and knife culture, binge drinking, teenage pregnancies and abortion. Prince Charles, while visiting the first grant maintained Muslim school in north London, said that the pupils would be the future ambassadors of Islam. But what about thousands of others, who attend state schools deemed to be "sink schools"? In education, there should be a choice and at present it is denied to the Muslim community. In the late 80s and early 90s, when I floated the idea of Muslim community schools, I was declared a "school hijacker" by an editorial in the Newham Recorder newspaper in east London. This clearly shows that the British media does not believe in choice and diversity in the field of education and has no respect for those who are different. Muslim schools, in spite of meager resources, have excelled to a further extent this year, with couple of schools achieving 100% A-C grades for five or more GCSEs. They beat well resourced state and independent schools in Birmingham and Hackney. Muslim schools are doing better because a majority of the teachers are Muslim. The pupils are not exposed to the pressures of racism, multiculturalism and bullying.

There are hundreds of state primary and secondary schools where Muslim pupils are in majority. In my opinion all such schools may be opted out to become Muslim Academies. This mean the Muslim children will get a decent education. Muslim schools turned out balanced citizens, more tolerant of others and less likely to succumb to criminality or extremism. Muslim schools give young people confidence in who they are and an understanding of Islam’s teaching of tolerance and respect which prepares them for a positive and fulfilling role in society. Muslim schools are attractive to Muslim parents because they have better discipline and teaching Islamic values. Children like discipline, structure and boundaries. Bilingual Muslim children need Bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods, who understand their needs and demands.
