On 21st May 2014 I showed some photographs of numbers on a fence outside a primary school in Hyde. Originally the numbers 1 to 9 were on the fence, but by May 2014 it had been reduced to the numbers 1 to 5 and I queried whether this showed that educational standards were slipping. This is a photograph I took of the fence recently.
So now we're down to the numbers 1 to 3 and the dumbing down of our childrens' education seems to be getting worse and worse. I fully expect to pass this fence in a few weeks' time and find just a huge number '1'.
