Today in food tech, my yr7 child and his class were told by their teacher:

Cows caused climate change due to methane.

Farmers dump excess manure in rivers.

Transporting animals for slaughter is a major emitter of co2.

A field of cows produces less food than a field of wheat.

Dairying farming uses all the water and causes draught.

I'm kidding you not. This is a rural secondary school in mid Lincolnshire. Could someone link me to the thread on non-biased school resources. Obviously, the school is about to get s strongly worded letter.

No doubt currently being advised by Defra.

If the teacher is worried about anything going into rivers, how about a mention of drug residues from water companies!!!

Do teachers follow a national curriculum or are they now allowed to make things up as they go along putting their own misguided slant into pupils?

They get their lesson planning resources from Twinkl.
https://www.twinkl.co.uk/
Anti-livestock-farming teachers have very cleverly put their lesson plans on there. Fair play to them, it's a good tactic. There have been calls on here for the last two years or more for the NFU to get pro-livestock-farming teachers resources on Twinkl. Hasn't happened to my knowledge. Clearly too busy keeping the NFU education fb page up to date. One post in the last 9 months.

We are completely and utterly incompetent. Any bad sh!t taught to the nations kids is our fault, no-one elses.

This has to be a spoof thread? Teachers surely understand the need to learn about something properly before teaching it?

How can any single teacher possibly do that ? Across the vast range of subject matter. They go to where the resources are, just the same as we do when we want a template pest control plan, H and S poster, whatever.

Surely if you're a maths teacher you understand maths, same applies to a geography teacher or a physics teacher. They can't just regurgitate a template...can they?

I mean none of it is rocket science? Teachers are surely experts at learning about stuff and then being able to present it to others?

We are where we are. Teachers are up to their necks in everything from ofsted to covid. They are going to get their teaching aids from online resources such as Twinkl. We can either huff and puff about that, or we can get some resources of our own on there. But that involves our national bodies being marginally better than useless.

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
