What I want is a typical modern UK primary school classroom, with desks that are pushed together to make bigger tables, and sets of coloured drawers and toys and work displays and a brightly-coloured theme.

The real cause of autism is ...those secret hideous experiments performed by the CIA decades ago- to cross humans with bottle nosed dolphins. That infusion of Flipper DNA into the human race did it. That was an actual theory I heard once. If that theory were true, then wouldn't I be as pretty as a ...

I read earlier today that a kid in the UK got sent home from school just for wearing shorts during the heat wave. I don't understand that, as shorts are actually part of the uniform in UK schools, unless it was at a high school, because at high school all students must wear blazers, ties and trouse...
