‘My secondary school was very shocked I had chosen this career pathway as they thought it would be much safer to go down core subjects like maths, English and science, as there are more job opportunities.’
– Katie, 16
We are conditioned to value the education we receive
If our household income justifies the input.
We are expected to understand that education is a weapon
If we select the correct ammunition.
Cold, hard facts may provide substantial weight
But the case that holds them will never expand.
Refuge can be found in the calm of the theatre
Until the swell insists that we are safer in the storm.
