When Northpod Law is off the air, this feed automatically redirects to Northpod's sister show, the UK Criminal Law Blog Podcast. UK Criminal Law Blog Podcast UKCLBP is a podcast by Dan, Lyndon and Sara - barristers who run the UK Criminal Law Blog. The podcast discusses and explains current cases and topics relevant to the criminal law, in language accessible to those not legally trained. Far too often the media don’t get the facts right about criminal cases meaning that far too often do the public not understand the 'how' and 'why'. We’re three barristers who are trying to change that by discussing current cases and topics in everyday English, to make the law more accessible to all. Our long-standing and well-respected blog can be found at www.ukcriminallawblog.com NorthPod Law is a podcast that reviews the week's legal stories and news with a particular focus on how they affect the legal profession and the justice system of England & Wales. This show runs for six weeks and then takes a six week break throughout the year. It is hosted by barristers Benjamin Knight, Kirstin Beswick and Jonathan Holt. Each week, they will be joined by other lawyers and legal experts and, together, they will cast an eye over that week's legal twists and turns. Northpod Law is now back for an 11th series starting 10th January 2014. ** Note to broadcast media producers: Our presenters are available for comment on legal matters in the public eye by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org - this address is monitored 24/7 **

But this seemingly bitter and reductive slogan is actually quite clever. When taken literally, "school sucks" is perhaps the most accurate and astute synopsis of the system I've ever heard. Here's why... 1. The twelve-year process of an American public education has a dramatic effect on the mind of a child. When we first enter school at age six, many of our best personal attributes are already in place. We are curious, innovative, unique, creative and hopeful in ways that we will rarely be able to replicate throughout the rest of our lives. But over time, school sucks those essential attributes out of too many of us...and replaces them with predictability, obedience and apathy. 2. The public school system sucks off the productive capacity of hard-working people. The system is coercively funded through taxation. In other words, whether public education succeeds or fails (spoiler alert: it fails) at providing real education to the public, the cost goes up every year. There are no refunds. The END of Public Education? 1. END: It's over, irrelevant, useless, needs to be done away with. Does more harm than good. 2. END: (As in means to an end) We'll also explore the true intentions behind the system, which have very little to do with real education. There is substantial evidence that its failure to educate is no accident. Above all, this is a show about what one might do about these problems...
