Today Nick Clegg has set out to provide a new initiative to provide what he has called “Outstanding Leaders” a league of Champions as he put it! This seems a little like the football league and we reward these so-called “Top Talent” with more money, and only the few get this chance to be a star!
So do we want more “Top Teachers” rather than “Good Teaching” as the statistics say we end up pushing up standards. That is good, but by what percentage, as classes get larger and larger every year! So maybe we could achieve seventy percent, but what of those left behind on the ladder of success! There are always those that do not make the grade ,those with problems at home, those with-out family support, these people stay on the bottom rungs!
They get forgotten sitting at the back of the class, until many years later they will not be earning the big bucks in Medicine, Politics or as a Teacher, they will be doing the menial jobs. There is of course nothing wrong with menial jobs, l have done these myself in the past, and still do even daily!
But l was one of those children at the back of the class, trying to attract teacher’s attention, knowing the answer when the question was asked, but too scared to speak, in case l was wrong, these were my school days! The fact was l needed both support from the teachers and my family, l received neither!
It took years of trying to make my way in life, and l took a long time to feel confidant enough to speak up and be counted, l was either angry at the system or angry at myself for taking it out on others!
Now l am able to write and tell other people my “Good News” there is no need to keep on throwing out failing teachers who fail their pupils, because as l now know so well it is the “Teacher that Teaches the Pupil and to be the absolute best teacher the “Pupil must Teach the Teacher” change for change sake is no change at all!
So l say to Nick Clegg let’s get better teaching methods, as throwing enough knowledge at some one does not mean they will learn, they have to be educated, on the how to learn. This method of teaching was around when l was a boy, and it would mean rote learning, of the Alphabet by association. The fact that each year, due to government intervention, changes are made to the curriculum, so many times it would make your head spin!
Then added to that the pupils have to start learning a new way of learning, this confuses the pupil. So Mr Clegg let us provide quality teachers based on tried and tested teaching methods of learning! We do not just need “Top Talent” or “Outstanding Leaders” this just leads children to follow the path of success for the sake of money, not for the sake of being the best Doctor or Politician at providing people with the best possible services.
We need children to grow up to be better citizens first and what and who they become second, thus making for a better world.

Environmental think tank aspired to global matrix of manufactured consent
Recently unearthed documents from the private collection of former diplomat and Bilderberg regular George C. McGhee have revealed (among other things) that the Club of Rome in 1970 wanted to create a “global matrix approach”, or G-Matrix approach, as a means of bringing people into an enviro-eugenicist mindset globally.
The Club of Rome was an influential think tank, advocating among other things worldwide population reduction and global environmental governance.
The author of the uncovered manuscript from 1970 was Italian industrialist Aurelio Peccei, who founded the Club of Rome in 1968. Peccei wrote that any acceptance of the Club’s conclusions “relies heavily on a global matrix approach”. Furthermore he writes that these conclusions by the infamous Club (which includes advocacy of worldwide population reduction) can only be generally accepted “through (…) an iterative, global…
