My tutors in Parts 2,3 and 4 were women, and all had male assistants. Right now, there are, um.... 4, maybe 5 female tutors at the Bris school who have male assistants. Half single or divorced, half married (the women tutors). well, that is progressive news, but it doesn't match what FT or I have s...

Stanton. are you saying you are a woman? Because I had assumed from your posts & your username you were male. mypoint is not that men don't ever assist, but that the SES worldview will not accomodate men in the helpmate role to a leading woman.

the Head of the NYC school for many years was a woman. - Joy Dillingham. really FT? well that does amaze me -- was she married or single? Because if she was married woman, then her husband would have been the Senior Tutor, right? In my (admittedly short) time w/ the NY school, I never once saw a fe...

The governors appointed a committee of the governors to make recommendations to the governing body. So they've all asked some of them to make recommendations to all of them. I don't think appointing a disciplinary action committee to make recommendations to the governing board is such a wacko idea,...

The SES's attitude towards Women has never been fully explained to me, so I can't really comment Well, Bella, a current adult student at the Brisbane SES school has described it thus: Yup, women obeying men (specifically their father or husband) is suggested as the ideal. The father or husband is s...

Snowman, any idea who will be responsible for determining the appropriate disciplinary action for the former teacher/current school head? Does the NZ school have a governing body?

summary "Sex Before Marriage" thread

I've gone through the "Sex Before Marriage" thread and tried to pull out quotes from people who have direct experience of SES/St James teaching regarding this subject. The thread devolves into slanging matches in some early pages, but overall I found it a fascinating discussion of some extremely cou...

The Governors have posted their decision about what disciplinary action to take with three teachers complained against. It?s at http://www.iirep.com/page13.htm I do find it just a jaw dropper that the AUTHOR of the original statement from the governors in response to Townend's report was...Roger Pin...

Making the connection clear between SES and St James schools for the benefit of parents has been a long-standing aim of many on this board. I notice you don?t say it is an aim of current St James headteachers, governors, or the senior SES membership. Stanton, I haven?t missed that you?ve personally...

cult, midcult, cultish, or just a social/spiritual org?

Here's a link to a Boston-based blogger, hosting something called "One Smoot Short of a Bridge" (a smoot apparently is "a unit of measure used to mark off Harvard Bridge.") you can post a comment at http://1smootshort.blogspot.com/2006/01/school-of-practical-philosophy.html here's a sample...

Stanton, You must have known where to look. If I were a prospective parent, studying up on schools, I would certainly pay very close attention to the description of the spiritual education that school would provide, and I would expect ANY affiliation with an adult organization to be listed. There is...

Stanton, Yes, http://www.stjamesschools.co.uk has an "About Us" tab and if you click on "History" underneath it the School of Economic Science is mentioned, with a link. HOWEVER, once you connect to the Junior school section of the website there is not a single mention, anywhere, of the SES affiliat...
