According to a British newspaper, the Times, the Professional Association of Teachers (PAT) does not wish to use the word "fail" anymore in the classroom. Rather, so as not to 'crush children's aspirations', the Association believes the word should be replaced with "deferred success".


God forbid we let children learn at any age, young or old, what the real world is about! Let's just allow them to get smacked with it in the face when they turn 18. (Assuming they have graduated from high school or college and are moving into the corporate environment and have not received a "deferred success".)

All I can say, is I hope the terroists that have been gunning for England recently continue to have "deferred successes" as in the last attack!
