Example text

I nearly disappeared in cynicism and despair. Feminism and the wilderness saved me. At the deepest level, this coming home enables me to see that I am not in the world on pain of good behaviour: I don’t have to prove myself to anyone, or to meet their expectations to be allowed in. I don’t have to believe that the price of access is to disguise most of what I am, to measure up to the gatekeeper’s code. Liberation comes in feeling that code to be irrelevant. I distinguish that from emancipation, which is the ending of the code altogether, and includes liberation.

The abstract individual of classic liberal theory, who is distinguishable only by his preferences, seems to have a new lease of life in the idealized child and the idealized student of educational policy-making. It is a kind of smoothing out that is needed to fit everyone into a format of standards, a uniform trajectory within uniform systems, marked by zero tolerance and best practice. The talk in Britain is of examinations (baseline assessments, SATs, GCSEs – O, A/S, A – NVQs)1 and of competencies, benchmarks and performance indicators.

To be fair, they weren’t. They just messed about. The teachers couldn’t control the people that were disruptive. All the classes seemed to be pretty much ridiculous and farcical. The teachers would say, ‘This is your homework. ’ I was lucky that I was friends with Wendy, not straight away, in about the third year. She was quite conscientious also. The English teacher I had at secondary school was really bad. In my final year English, Wendy and I would do all the work and we would sit there for weeks with nothing to do waiting for everyone to catch up.
