Mr. Worley shows he’s got…courage.

It’s not often we find ourselves applauding members of the educational establishment. Anarchists reject authoritarian and hierarchical approaches to education. Children can learn loads of useful, interesting and fun stuff at school. But at their worst, the places crush individuality and imagination. One of their functions, after all, is to train our kids to respect the state and capitalist values, and not to question the system when things go wrong.
So imagine our surprise to find that our neighbour Mr. Worley, Head Teacher of Sycamore Primary School in St. Ann’s, is setting up an after school football club called “Balls to Poverty.” Our sentiments exactly! Maybe he’d like some anarchists on his board of governers.”
