“Parents' anger as school reveals plan for every pupil to have Apple iPad.. at minimum cost of £13 per month” Schools like this must be changed ….

 

SO ,SO wrong

Parents' anger as school reveals plan for every pupil to have Apple iPad.. at minimum cost of £13 per month

 

and how i think the way forward should be .

 

 

 

Plans for Lochside Primary School to generate its own electricity

 

 

This really annoys me , anyone that has had to start a business would think themselves so fortunate to start that business with the resources at hand that had the schools have .

 

The buildings , employees a budget not forgetting the huge resource oor kids at hand .

Why then  do some of our schools still feel the need to stick there hand oot for more money , forcing parents to stump up more and more money and as always the ones that can’t afford they will be made to stand in a different queue with all the destruction to the spirit this brings ( as someone that got a free meal ticket and is still haunted by it believes)

 

Schools need to be more like a business in all aspects, this will result in lower taxes and the school will flourish as will all the pupils .

 

so often you hear a kid leaving only to say they cant find a job , shite what has the school been doing for the 9 to ten years they have had that child .

 

By the time oor kids leave they should be running their own business or learnt a trade they love , the day they officially leave school should not be a big deal, as they are already earning a living and some of the money from their business;s etc will be ploughed back into education for the children coming behind, no fees etc no need to force parents to buy equipment etc

 

the buying power of our schools is huge and just shows the ones that do this have no right to teach they have no drive or dreams of a brighter future , far simpler to put the pressure on parents , get of your arse and INSPIRE that is what you are paid to do , i say .

 

love and light

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
