The Kids Are Alright ?

It's been a long time since police lived in the communities they serve. Most policemen commute, at last partly to avoid hassle from anti-social elements. Looks like teachers may be following.

"A teacher from Wiltshire has moved home twice to escape pupils abusing her in the street and attacking her house.

David Michel from the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers, said: "There is no other option for teachers faced with this than to live outside the catchment area.

"It has been going on in cities and towns for a long time, but the fact that it is spreading to the countryside is very worrying."

If only young people had the vote they'd be so much more responsible.
