After the decision to allow 16 and 17 years olds to vote in the referendum for independence, Alex Salmond has also decided to give nursery school pupils a seat on the board of governors. This will give them the opportunity to decide school policy based on who promises them the most deep fried chocolate buttons.
'These three year olds should have the right to decide how their teachers can create a healthy balance between play and learning, and on what day they make potato prints' Mr Salmond told us. 'Let's be honest. there's nothing unusual about having someone with a very low IQ and a mental age of three dictating education policy. Look at Michael Gove.'
Sam Tiler, age 3 years and 7 months and who's brother is in year 2 explained his input into his school so far. 'On Thurnesday, we now have to jump like frogs to the sky and run in circles and call the teacher poohead' he told us whist spinning himself in the curtains. 'We will also make sure that the teacher to pupil ratio are held at acceptable levels ensuring enough one-to-one time whilst still maintaining a positive group learning environment' he continued before adding 'I've just done a wee-wee'.
