    Default Madonna & Guy Ritchie - arguing over Rocco's education

    Madonna And Guy Ritchie Disagree About Rocco's Education


    In what is sure to be a divorce extraodinaire, Madonna and Guy Ritchie continue to disagree on a number of matters concerning where their children will live and how they'll be educated.

    Guy is especially concerned about his biological son Rocco.

    According to reports at In Touch magazine the estranged couple is now feuding over Rocco's spiritual upbringing.

    Madonna is set on teaching the child only Kabbalah while Ritchie feels he should be exposed to other Religons.

    The source told the magazine, "Guy is 100% done with Kabbalah. He doesn't want his son only exposed to one religon, especially one that he no longer believes in."

    Guy Ritchie is currently filming Sherlock Holmes in the U.K. and hasn't participated in any Kabbalah ceremonies since announcing he was getting a divorce. Both parties are adamant on how they feel Rocco should be exposed to Religon.

    Madonna and Guy have two other children, Madonna's daughter Lourdes from a prior relationship and adopted son David Banda.

    This translates in to where his will be educated. As far as I am aware although there are specifically Jewish schools (both public & private) in the UK, I haven't heard of any that ONLY teach kaballah (although I'm prepared to be wrong). I suspect that this is one in NY/LA..... and that Madge wants him to go there....

    They must have appreciated her contribution for a while though. But thankfully they dont think money is EVERYTHING.

    There are some Jewish schools in London but I don't know of any that adhere to Kaballah, since Jews feel it's a study reserved for old guys who have studied the Torah for many, many years. I'd think they'd put the kid in a good private school, of which there are tons in London. But then he might learn to think and question, which probably isn't good when you're shoving your cult down his throat. And didn't Madge buck against her father's hard-core Catholicism? Can't she see that the same thing will probably happen with her own kids?

    Madge and Guy should do the kids a favour and send them to some plain old secular schools. Really, a public education would be agood investment, to make sure the kids don't grow up weird.

    But, really, as a former pupil of public schools, selective schools, private schools and religious schools, I got my best education at school from the high-quality public schools I attneded. Private and religious educational facilities are a waste of time and a drain on resources.

    It depends on where you live. In London I would not send my kid to a public school. No fucking way.

    That's true, but most of the private schools and religious schools are a waste of space: more concerned with what you and your family can do for the school than how they can properly educate your child.

    Are all the public schools in London really that bad?

    Absolutely not. They arent called ''public'' schools anyway

    I resent hearing people who know nothing of British education systems making such broad statements.

    The comprehensive schools across the UK are very very good. I've seen both sides of the fence and paying for an education means nothing, especially in London. I've found that the pupils in private schools are receiving nothing more than a pupil in a comprehensive. FACT.

    I know they aren't called public schools in the UK, but it's what they're called pretty much everywhere else - being ethnocentric in this arena would have been confusing for everyone else.

    But just because people don't know much about the schools in London doesn't necessarily mean that they know nothing about the education system in the UK. For example, I'm no expert about the schools in Perth, but I still know a lot about the Australian education system (which is similar, in many ways, although not identical, to the one in the UK).

    But frankly, if I had the choice of sending my child to a very good public ("private" in the UK) school or an expensive private ("public" in the UK) school, I'd pick the public school. I attended a very highly regarded private school, and it was an absolute waste of time and money.

    You can resent all you want but the fact is that I have educated my heathens in London so I know what I'm talking about. I lived in a very nice area of London and the local state schools, unless they were C of E, were absolute crap. Actually, the C of E weren't that great either. Most people go private for this very reason. And private schools give you a hell of a lot more than the local primary and yes, that is a FACT. I don't know about the rest of the UK and I don't really care. I speak from experience so get off your high horse.

    Anyway, Madge and Ritchie can't send their kids to a local state school. They'd be bullied mercilessly and it would also be a security risk. A private school is far more able to protect the kids.

    TBH - having dealt with some of the people that administrate these things, I wouldn't send my kids to a private school at all in London or no.... Think Baby P but inepter....

    Thats funny, because there are any number of schools that are comprehensive that are in Special Measures - i.e. are completely failing; or are in Schools Causing Concern. Yes, there are good state schools, but equally there are good private schools are well. However, there are MANY that are not.

    Private schools are judged on different standards (and don't have Special Measures); and have their own curriculum and don't have to adhere to the national curriculum; so it's comparing apples with oranges.

    Maybe you should find out what you're talking about before posting your opinion as FACT.

    for example
    SCHOOLS IN OFSTED SPECIAL MEASURES OR WITH A NOTICE TO IMPROVE Accountable Cabinet Member: Councillor Sandra Clark
    Milton Keynes figures - out of 49 schools 13 are "satisfactory" and 7 are failing.

    Plus.....

    Government policies to tackle school failure have been steadily successful. Since 1997, over 1,400 schools, which required special measures, have been successfully turned round and a further 200 have been closed. 51 schools closed have been given a Fresh Start with a new school opening on the same site.
    At the end of the 1997/98 academic year there were 515 schools in special measures but this figure had fallen to 254 at the end of the spring term 2008.

    Anyhow - they'll send their child to a private school - probably one that specialises in spotting & assisting dyslexic kids as Guy is so bad. The debate over whether it'll be n the UK or US will continue...
