Stet Character Building

Red ink is being banned in primary British schools because, “The red pen has negative connotations and can be seen as a negative approach to improving pupils’ work.” Since writing negative remarks in a different colored ink would invoke the same connotations as the red pen, maybe these sensitive little pricks should get gold stars and cookies when they do well and smiley faces when they do poorly. Under this system, the line between right and wrong will be blurred enough so the only thing kids will learn is that it is socially acceptable to be stupid because it makes people smile.
