Staying with the schools and education theme, here’s an encouraging item of news for you, More than 4,500 crimes in Kent and East Sussex schools were recorded by police in 14 months, figures obtained under Freedom of Information laws have shown.
The BBC reports offences included wounding, theft, arson, drug-taking, vandalism and harassment.
One school Bexhill High School, a specialist technology college, has 1,600 students and had the highest number of reported crimes since January 2005 among South East schools.
Head teacher Mike Conn said the school was not "crime-ridden".
If it’s not, then I’d hate to see what a really “crime-ridden” school is like.
