Won't Somebody Please Think of the Children?!

The Ombudsman for Children has reportedly called for students to be given a role in the development of new codes of behaviour for schools.

The Ombudsman Emily Logan has reportedly claimed that the lack of consultation with children when drawing up school rules contravenes the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Government's own children's strategy.

Wow, this is the nanny state - literally! I think this is crazy. How about we try being adults and lay down the law? Also, can we have the Ombudsman consult somebody before coming out with such stupid statements?
