noj makes a really good point (especially when agreeing that Gavin can **** off)

it's hard to see BT doing it for purely altruistic reasons given the way the whole pandemic has been exploited by certain parties (businesses, individuals, politicians, celebrities, the Angling trust.... ) Reading the story it does seem that Gavin has made another head in the sand decision that screws over disadvantaged students but that would come as no surprise to me given his track record.

the whole 'give them a laptop' approach reminds me of the 'Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' when the aliens say that the plans to destroy earth have been there for us to read on a distant planet for ages...

Maybe Gavin came from a house with a suitable quiet space to work in. maybe he had his own bedroom. maybe he wasn't fighting for use of a single laptop with 4 other siblings. There are so many factors that government just seem to be ignorant of.

It sounds churlish to complain about it, but it's another poorly executed plan that doesn't address the gaps in learning opportunity for the most deprived kids in the country.

If anything, it emphasises the gap that has been created by successive government policy and that schools have consistently tried to reduce. One of the key elements of any Ofsted inspection is 'closing the gap' between PP (pupil premium i.e. disadvantaged) students and non PP. Schools spend a lot of time trying to fix a deeply rooted social inequality.

who knows why he said no? maybe his shares are in Virgin broadband instead...

the laptop provision is a good thing in theory - but in practice, for many families, it's like putting a plaster on a cut when they really need a cast for their broken leg.

Worst Education minister ever - and bear in mind that includes Gove... (who can also **** off)

edit - tinhead - well played Mrs Tinhead
although it's not the weekly mass testing that Gavin and Boris promised on our behalf. We've about 1500 kids - how many days is it going to take to test them each week and who's teaching / TA supporting the classes while staff are doing it...? Yeah, I know, I'm a drama queen...

They were offering vouchers for 6 or 12 months I think. So people who for whatever reason donít have the internet get connected and after that free period BT get 1000s stitched up in a contract.
Iím with Mal, **** Gavin.. but these Ďstoriesí really need to be approached with an open mind. The corporations are as crooked as the cabinet and BT knew they would come out smelling of roses regardless of the offer being taken up or not.

Mal what do you make of your Bezzy mate Gav turning down BTs offer to supply cheap broadband for children that donít have it so they can learn online easily?

Keyworker kids tested negative today Mal. Good thing is they don't make a fuss about it, they just get on and do it. they aren't drama queens
I can't see why more kids can't get tested, go back and get the school opened.

Tinhead is the one running off in the distance , Wayne is the one beating a cow up in a nearby field because he misheard Tinhead tell him i'll whack this one you whack the other !

We could start a dedicated Tit for Tat thread.

...but it might only get visits from disappointed cockneys looking for berets and trilbies.
