An academy in the UK county of Cornwall has banned teachers from using red ink. From now on there will be a new grading system using green and purple pens only. Why? Because, as everyone knows, red is the color of rage, anger, and punishment.
Our daughter, age 5, suddenly announced just before school that she needed to take a clean tee shirt to class. She told us the teacher was going to iron an anti-drug message on it.
My wife frantically swept through our daughter’s room, finding nothing usable except one tee shirt that already had something printed on one side. She sent it off to school with our daughter.
