We recognise that children do not necessarily achieve success first time. . . . But I recognise that we can’t just strike a word from the dictionary. — PAT spokesperson
This politically correct speech thing has really gotten out of hand. Our children do not need to be misled by terms such as “deferred success,’ which imply that she may get it right the next time. She may not. How long shall success be deferred, and do you really think the child will not catch on? Children aren’t stupid, at least not until they’ve been through the public education system. This will just make them even dumber.
