Brian Jacks (remember him from Superstars?) was a PE teacher at my school. He was a bit of a peado I reckon. John Salako was also at my school although a couple of years below me and Jerome Flynn (of Robson and Jerome fame) was a year or so above me. He also played cricket for IDE Hill and I bowled him first ball........if of course anyone is interested

At the school where I was educated the teachers always referred to students by their surnames not their christian names.Don't know if this was the way in those days or it was just certain schools which adopted such a practice.

That formality should always be there and It's just a symptom of what went wrong in education.

Essentially left wing politics.

Education is one of the clearest examples of O’Sullivan’s Law.

For those who aren't aware O’Sullivan’s Law states that any organization or enterprise that is not expressly right wing will become left wing over time.

At my school it was the same or possibly "you boy come here" which always me feel guilty although I wasn't always.

History teacher was Doc Elliot, very military type but also quite strange. In his favour he was an excellent teacher.

First lesson in Big school was straight into formality with a bump. It was straight out of Whizz for Atomms. Surnames all round, gowns, masters instead of teachers, call them all Sir and it was Latin. cćcilius est pater. Metella est mater. Quintus est filius.

of corse from then on it was an unremiting round of lat hist algy geom div eng peotry some boring pla by shakspere and then lat agane amo amas amat oh and fr how could i forget wot is the imperfect subjunk of avoir eh molesworth come on boy it never end chiz.

Now I design databases so I suppose it must have prepared me for the atommick age in some way.

No doubt that gives you a sense of normalisation.
