Re: Science journal: single sex education is not better.

Contrary to what the incoming chairman of the Society of Headmasters and Headmistresses of Independent Schools, David Boddy, says about single-sex education, thread here: http://www.ses-forums.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=786&start=0 single-sex education does not improve academic performance. It...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

"Silence on Sundays is NOT an organisation. Nor is it under the direction or associated with any other organisation. The initiative has arisen within the hearts of a small number of people who have been working for some time to discover their true nature and who wish to deepen their experience...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

CM, If you have something to say about me and to me, why do you not address me directly? You said, When you post on this forum, there is no obligation to engage with anyone. It is polite and flattering when some anonymous person takes the time to read your views online and respond, but there is no o...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Hi Jo-Anne, you said, 'Animal Farm' is the book by George Orwell in which the very creatures who criticise the farmer end up behaving like the farmer. In this case the 'farmer' is the SES. I am familiar with Orwells work, my question was around where you placed myself and the other posters as the ch...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Bluemoon, you said, The SES is the whole point of this forum, and was relevant anyway to illustrate the point I was making above. However, the rest of what we have been discussing could be considered irrelevant or certainly not entirely relevant to other users of this forum, and I am conscious of th...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Bluemoon, you said, I certainly do not think that, nor do I think that you are not being rational, if anything I think you are being too rational, at the expense of other ways of understanding and communicating. In other words I think this disecting of what people say can be used to misconstrue what...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Bluemoon, you said, I am not going to write directly to JAMR as I have already explained that I find his attitude to be antagonistic. I have read his responses but still do not believe his motive is sincere in the respect of understanding, but rather in the respect of grinding other views down. Unde...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Jo-anne, you said this, This is very interesting. People's responses to JAMR's disagreement with their point of view are identical to those of the SES when disagreed with i.e. stonewalling and a refusal to engage. We appear to have come full circle. 'Animal Farm' springs to mind Other posters appear...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Woodgreen, you said, Well said Bluemoon. I was intending to post JAMR to ask him to stop badgering people on the Forum and at the same time tell him not to respond to me or engage in any of my future postings. You are posting in a public forum and refer to me in the 3rd person as if this is way to t...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Bluemoon, you said, Well thank you JAMR for your post above, in particular for the quote from the book I recommended and your comments on it at the end of your post. I rest my case, and as I said I no longer intend to engage with you. Your case needs more support than an assertion and a good that im...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Bluemoon, you said, I am not going to respond to your version of things and await Daffy's decision on how this forum should be used if he has any comments. OK I don't believe that you have a benign motive in your 'discussions' and like Concernedmum do not intend to engage with you JAMR anymore. It l...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Bluemoon, you said, This is not correct. The ONLY issue on this particular forum is the SES/SoP (and whatever other names they call themselves and their linked childrens schools around the world to hide who they really are and their very close links). If you just want to discuss groups in general pe...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Bluemoon, you said, JAMR wrote the above post mostly about racism. This looks like you are seeing a red herring under every bed? My response was to comments about racism, as well as sexism, noting that you also had comments about the racist aspect, and it was one in which you jumped to an invalid co...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

Bluegreen, you said, I guess when I was talking about racism, I was not meaning liking or disliking black people or their culture, but the fear or attitudes born of ignorance and inexperience. You can become familiar with them and even feel engulfed by them (if you are in a minority) and decide that...

Re: David Boddy on boys only schools - TES Connect article

JAMR, I am sure it's just as important for all our life and education to have physical classes as much as reading, writing, maths etc etc. We all need all sorts of things to help us grow up and get our brains working as well as our hearts and rest of our bodies. This is essential for boys and girls...
