They can learn that just as well in any group of kids - in a local youth group, or football club, or down at the rec.

I've known people leave school at 16 or 18 and know nothing except perhaps their times tables and where Burkina Faso is and what the repeal of the corn laws was all about (beats me).

Thank you.
