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.

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

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.

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

Re JAMR's above post. 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. 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. Best ...

JAMR wrote: Most issues here are about issues with groups, in your case it is very strongly the SES. As you can see I have no issue discussing the SES as a group as well as attitudes of those that fight against the SES. This is not correct. The ONLY issue on this particular forum is the SES/SoP (and...

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

JAMR wrote the above post mostly about racism. I would like to make a point that this Forum is entitled 'General discussions on SES'. I appreciate that various issues come up related to SES but I do wonder JAMR what your interest is in posting long involved musings on various subjects which seem to ...

JAMR wrote: My experience of al ranges of racial mixed schools did nnor operate remotely like this. In a predominantly white school, there was no issue with a low number of black kids, but it became an issue when the school became mostly black.

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

I think you are right Woodgreen the quote above was most likely the actress Jane Horrocks. This further quote from her must be in the St James brochure, see link below: “My son is thriving at St James Senior Boys. The schools focus on a philosophy that looks beyond the self-seeking values of the mod...

Steiner Schools have come up before on this forum, I have copied and pasted a quote I found from the link below that Bluegreen posted in 2009: http://counterknowledge.com/2009/01/ (Just checked this link and its broken I'm afraid) “Anthroposophy’s entire spiritual doctrine is founded on the root rac...

Re: Another Guru in Deep Trouble

I just wanted to add that a book that I found very helpful in understanding the importance of the feminine is 'The return of the feminine and the world soul' by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee. A description of the book can been viewed at this link: http://www.workingwithoneness.org/the-feminine/book-descript...
