    Making education fun isn’t linked to the amount of money spent. Its about the content of the curriculum and the enthusiasm of teachers. You’re right though that education should be enjoyable

    I can remember enjoying some lessons when I was at school, others were boring and some I simply didn’t understand or like. That was in the olden days and I thought schools were now happy places to learn in. I was in a school recently where a class were dressed in period costume as they were in the middle of a project set in Victorian times and were thoroughly enjoying themselves.

    Maybe your teachers need to lighten up, or go on a course to show them how to make their lessons more interesting and amusing for their students. Or perhaps they already do that but the pupils are not up for it because they’re looking forward to the October break! I couldn’t say because I don’t know what school you’re from, but I don’t think money alone could make school more interesting and amusing.
