Easter holiday – George Orwell 07.04.20
Looking for critical quotes looking at both sides of the argument in reference to a Childs expectations and memories of schooling. In George Orwell’s such such were the joys, a short story about his childhood in the British boarding school system.
“No one can look back on his schooldays and say with truth that they were altogether unhappy.” (Orwell. Pg 20. 1947)
“The business of being out for a walk, coming across something of fascinating interest and then being dragged away from it by a yell from the master, like a dog jerked onwards by the leash, is an important feature of school life, and helps to build up the conviction, so strong in many children, that the things you most want to do are always unattainable.” (Orwell. Pg 21 1947)
