Rampant Commercialisation Of Schools, Pt 50...

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd share this example of the commercialisation of schools via the 'gift' of 'learning resources' by the corporates to primary schools. This one was homework for six year olds at a school in Sheffield....

There was a 3rd sheet with pics of supermarket faves like the one above, but you get the idea......

Skinner: Look around, Lisa. That grant money could do a lot of

good.

Chalmers: Don't you think those youngsters deserve a regulation

tetherball?

[the scene switches to Milhouse and Nelson playing

tetherball, only the ball is really a cinderblock, and

what it's tethered to is less of a pole and more of a

thin, crooked piece of metal. Nelson hits the 'ball',

which swings around and hits Milhouse in the face,

breaking his glasses]

Skinner: We can buy =real= periodic tables instead of these

promotional ones from Oscar Meyer.

Krabappel: Who can tell me the atomic weight of bolognium?

Martin: Ooh ... delicious?

Krabappel: Correct. I would also accept snacktacular.

That's nothing!

You should see the sh1t they are being fed about drowning polar bears.

I would rather they be subject to constant advertisement than outright brainwashed and turned into state drones.

Apart from the marmite there's nothing on that sheet that is evenly remotely healthy ...

I would rather that they used non brand stuff ...

(Or use apples and oranges...

an apple weights 120g and an orange weights 100g - etc...)

We do not need people brain washed into obesity.

Although, none of it is particularly unhealthy either :rolleyes:

Unless you eat it all in a single sitting

If you ignore the fact that they are more or less all refined sugar.

Have you seen how much salt is in that stuff?

I remember as a child aged about 10, many years ago being taken to a procter and gamble factory a school trip. looking back it felt like the brands were being forced on our semiconscious, the first real experience of the subtleness of advertising I will never forget....we were all given a bottle of washing-up-liquid to take home to give to our mums. :blink:

I never really understood how it was any worse than, say, Speedy Gonzalez (full of racial stereotypes).

Thankfully the do-gooders haven't banned him yet because he's on the latest (virgin?) ads for super fast broadband.

I googled up the history, and it wasnt based on a black character at all, but on US kids making home-made dolls and using black material for the faces. they were called gollies, and thats what they remained.

Im not sure where the wog bit came in, but I guess thats what the racialism crowd were complaining about.

all seemed a storm in a teacup to me, and Robertsons never withdrew the product, although they did remove the Golden Shred Logo from the Gollies chest.

I had a few and they were really nice badges...great quality.
