Teachers are now marking corrections to pupils’ work with pink pens because the colour red is deemed ‘too aggressive’.
Some headteachers are implementing this madcap marking scheme in order to avoid kids feeling like failures when confronted by a sea of red ink.
This new system isn’t alone – another trial uses SIX different colours of pens to mark work, with teachers blaming Ofsted guidance.
We hardly need more evidence of the mollycoddling infecting our schools. Between the Blob and their PC overlords at Ofsted, today’s school kids are being killed by kindness.
