Red Marks The Spot

student 3OMG the Nanny State is at it again. A British school is ditching their red pens because wait for it …. it’s a negative colour. Bhahahahahahah that is what it is suppose to represent you fools. It is meant to alert the student they have got something WRONG. Not nearly wrong or a little wrong …. friggin WRONG. The school is encouraging the teachers to make “two or three positive comments about a student’s homework and point out perhaps one thing that will take them to the next stage.”  Cue eye roll.

  1. Good God just when you think things can’t get any worse, it does. Try red pen AND the strap like a we got!! That will make them sit up and take notice.

  2. We don’t need no education
    We don’t need no thought control
    No dark sarcasm in the classroom
    Teachers leave them kids alone
    Hey teacher leave us kids alone
    All in all you’re just another brick in the wall

  3. Yes, it is a negative color. It glares up at those little snot drippers, you did not do well. So it should be retained to ensure they are aware. Good grief.

  4. I dread and love the red editor’s pen because A) it’s going to sting a little and B) it’s the only way to improve.

  5. I guess the new generation will never be wrong in their lives.

  6. What a joke, I have not heard of this before Loon but I am putting a BIG RED LINE under it, wrong, wrong and definitely WRONG😦 Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr xxxx
