More from the Department of the Bleeding Obvious

From the Scotsman:
"Teachers should not ask pupils to put their hands up if they can answer a question in class, in case quiet children fall behind, the government has said.

Research identified a group of youngsters who struggle to keep up with their classmates between the ages of seven and 11, despite doing well in previous years."
I really want a job doing this kind of research. Make a few obvious observations, then pop off to the pub. Does it pay well, does anyone know?

'Cos we already know this. I've taken it a stage further: as well as not asking them to put up their hands, I reckon it's best not to ask them questions. In fact best to avoid talking to them at all.

Only kidding.

I want to go home.
