The elephant in the language classroom
Peter Smith, a contributor for Edutopia, writes: "At an impressionable age, I was sent to a boarding school run by ex-servicemen on strict Victorian principles and the rules of cricket. Corporal punishment and bullying were rife, but the cane was a lesser threat if you were a good cricketer and got good exam grades. You could also reduce the bullying hazard by conforming to accepted behaviors such as Elvis Presley impersonations and participation in the swapping of James Bond literature."
