When I was eleven years old, there was a test in the UK, called the “Eleven Plus” which determined whether you would be sent to a Grammar School, a Technical School or a Secondary Modern School.
That was the way it was.
Since I loved Art and was not good at Maths, in Primary School, it was a surprise that I was sent to the Technical School.
It just happened.
And these stories in rainbow shades from light to dark, tell something of what happened there:
The English Teacher
The Maths Teacher
The Physics Teacher
The Sixth Form Maths Teacher
The Woodwork Teacher
The French Teacher
The Music Teacher
The PE Teacher
Hmm, which did you choose first?
