First topic message reminder :

There are roughly 100,000 children who are in care in the UK with roughly 50,000 of those children being in care because they suffered neglect or abuse whilst at home.

It's by no means a given, but children who spend time in the care system are less likely than other children to achieve academic success.

When they leave primary school, 43% of children in care will have reached the national curriculum test level expected for their age - compared with 74% of all children.

Almost 35% of children in care leave school with no GCSEs. Only 13.2% of children in care obtain five good GCSEs - compared with 57.9% of all children.

Only 6% of care leavers go to university - compared with 38% of all young people

And things get worse for care leavers when looking at crime statistics. Less than 1% of the population have ever been in care yet over 33% of the prison population have been in care at some stage in their life.

Is enough being done to give children in care the opportunities that they need in life to succeed? What more could be done to help children in care be successful at school and help prevent them from entering prison?

Still can't just let it go can you.

You should count the distance in miles between Bradford and London and give thanks I aint just around the corner pus.
It's only a couple of hundred...feel free to call up and make yourself known if you're THAT upset about things

You could hang around Centenary Square and talk to people, that way it wouldn't take long for news of the stupid southern frigstick talking nonsense but convincing himself he knows what he's talking about to reach me and we can hook up if you fancy it.

You might find me delightful company... on the other hand I will probably still think you're a plank but will have happily disabused you of any notions about how tough you think you are in the meantime.

Keyboard gangsta no1

Lets say we bury the hatchet because its pointless. I'm all for being the bigger man.

but if you can't resist being a KB warrior then carry on I know what you're issue is with me anyway the real issue.

Let me know when that happens dear chap

As for the real issue I have with you, I think most people on here are cripplingly aware that it's because of the utter bollox you spout. Would n't mind if any of it was tongue in cheek but you genuinely seem to believe the cack you're coming out with.

I'll call it quits but reserve the right to take issue with some of the guff you write

Be a love and tell what the real reason is then. Are you suggesting there's a racial element to my posts?
