Paranoia, Abuse & The Shifting Culture Of Teaching

- Public anxiety about child sexual abuse has led to a shift in the relationship between children and their teachers. Although the incidence of teachers abusing children in their care is rare, one or two highly publicised cases have had far-reaching consequences for teachers, and generated much confusion and worry amongst teachers, parents and children. See... Touchy Subject [1]

Lindsay Perigo: Jesus Got Nothing On Me

- Today's being the last show before the Easter break, I thought I'd do a sequel to my chat to God the other day - a retake of the Sermon on the Mount, since here too, I figure I can improve on the original. See... Lindsay Perigo: A (Revised) Sermon From The Mount [1]
