Found an old primary school workbook of Tom’s. School was not his very best thing.
He summed up school as –
S.ix C.rual H.ours O.f O.ur L.ives !!
M.ental A.buse T.o H.umans !
H.alf O.f M.y E.nergy W.asted O.n R.andom K.nowledge !
. . . and ended with a heartfelt plaintive broadcast question; I suspect not really expecting an answer –
In The Name Of Jesus, Why Does School Exist!?
