London, England (AHN) - A British secondary school is breaking ground by allowing its students to curse at their teachers. The catch? It cannot be done more than five times a lesson.
A count of how many times the F-word is used will be kept on a blackboard. If a class goes over the limit, it will be "spoken to" at the end of the lesson.
The controversial policy, which the school hopes will improve the behavior of pupils, was lambasted by parents' groups yesterday, warning it would backfire.
Parents were notified of the plan, which starts when the school term begins next week, in a letter from the Weavers School in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.
What more can I say.
