Dr James Le Fanu says students are bored

It would be far more interesting to read about the compulsively treacherous King John, an equal-opportunity oppressor, in the Liberty Timeline.

Writes Dr James Le Fanu

"Teenagers, quite rightly, tend to steer clear of visiting the doctor unless they want a prescription for acne or the pill. But when they do drop by, they never seem particularly happy, and inquiry invariably reveals that they find school incredibly boring.

. . .pupils spend a massively disproportionate amount of time learning (or supposedly so) about saturated fats and Ohm's law but nothing of the great achievements of Western civilisation. Their glorious island history is an optional subject and the creative arts are marginalised to the point of non-existence."
