Pete (@mr_van_w) highlights the lack of flexibility and possible victim blaming of school uniforms. John (@jfcatto) worries that exam stress may be completely unnecessary and pose little benefit to teaching and learning at a whole. Then Pete leaves everyone on a downer with a new study showing the worryingly high rate of teacher suicide.

    Just listed to this episode and had a thought. I wonder what the girl's school attitude is about hijabs? It seems the same mentality. We are afraid that you might fall victim to some inappropriate behaviour, so we are making you dree a particular way. You are right when labelling it victim blaming. I am concerned about the implications of placing the responsibility for others' actions at the feet of what a girl wears. What are the further implications for those girls if they are sexually mistreated?
