Educating Yorkshire
« on: November 07, 2019, 09:30:44 am »
Recently been doing a lot of reading and research about what it's like to teach in the UK. Came across this series about a school in northern England (Yorkshire) and thought it was worth a share, bladdy interesting if you ask me  ;D

Yeah I saw it. The prevalence of caked makeup and extreme eyebrow plucking among both male and female students was truly shocking.

I just thought it was interesting to see how schools are run in the UK compared to my experiences in Korea. Obviously can't draw too many conclusions from a documentary about a single school, but as rowdy and difficult as some of the students seemed, classes didn't seem too bad.
