    Default Snowflake education

    Father must give up his 'abusive' school website | Daily Mail Online

    Spends £125k on his private education and his son gets 1 GCSE. Who's fault is it? Can you guess?

    His son David, 17, who went on to study arboriculture and horticulture
    Whose fault?
    90% idiot father not realising his lad was only ever destined to be a gardener.
    10% school for taking the fees even though they must have realised he was either thick, lazy or both.
    Oh, and the other 100% the kid. 1 Grade C in science? There are amphibians who can do better than that

    Says a lot about the father, personally I would have wanted to keep this on the QT.

    He wants to try and recoup the fees!!!

    qh
    He had a negative bluety on a quackhandle and was quadraspazzed on a lifeglug.

    SO I've got a million quid here, my sprog can't even tie his own shoelaces together at the ages of 11 but surely that million quid will result in 'thickie holden' being able to marry quantum mechanics and general relativity... money well spent!

    GCSE grades go down all the way to G. So a grade C in science isn't too bad.

    That's even worse. In my day it was O levels, and everything below a C was regarded as a fail.

    In most employers eyes below a C is still a fail....

    Or whatever mark is equivalent to a C anyway
