I’ve just had a new student transfer into my class. She spent some of term one at Hoodrat, but I never got to know her, so I texted my old colleague the Creator to get the low-down.
Apparently, she is still on Hoodrat’s roll; this despite the fact that she enrolled in - and has been attending – another school for all of the second term, having left Hoodrat months ago.
Now, that’s not just inefficiency – there are specific legal guidelines to stop that sort of carryon from going unnoticed; and a fairly significant government agency that follows up on this kind of thing.
For it to happen would require either a frighteningly corrupt attempt to grub another few dollars of funding from the Ministry, or an inconceivable, almost aggressive incompetence on the part of my old employers.
I’m pretty sure it’s the latter, but I don't know if that makes it better or worse...
