Giving lessons

How will giving £500 to every school for children to give to charity "encourage a culture of giving among children"? Giving involves the sacrifice of personal consumption, how will these children "lose"? Who will audit the charities and funds?

Such lessons should really be an introduction to the benefits of the welfare state and central government. It interferes in every aspect of life and has a penchant for extreme waste without responsibility.

i agree. how pointless. And of all the areas in our schools that need attention, lessons in charity support sure isnt top of the list right now & is surely something our schools can and do already handle adequately.

Hopefully the children will feel a sense of stinging sacrifice when their tax-paying parents smack them arse!
