You Can Now Study For A GCSE In 'Jade Goody!'
A new GCSE course will see the study of celebrated thicky
and Queen of Ignorance, Jade Goody. And yes, you did
read that right!
The former dental nurse became famous for being a complete-and-utter
dimwit during her 2002 stay in the BB House, having thought
that East Angular (Anglia) was abroad, managed to confuse
the country Rio de Janeiro with footy player Rio Ferdinand,
and invented plenty of new words like wirelophone, Portuganese
However, kids won't actually be learning from the
stupid former celebrity, who made millions-of-pounds after
leaving the UK's most famous house but had a huge fall from
grace when she returned during CBB5 in January 2007.
Rather, the media portfolio unit of the GCSE run by the Oxford,
Cambridge and RSA board will ask students to compare how BBC
News and a newspaper of their choice covered the International
race-row caused by Jade, which got so out-of-hand that the
current Prime Minister had to apologise to India for her behaviour.
For, second time around – and appearing as a media-savvy
and affluent celebrity rather than a mouthy girl from a Bermondsey
council estate – Jade's bullying behaviour and racist
comments aimed at eventual Winner Shilpa Shetty shocked the
nation, resulting in over 40,000 complaints to TV watchdog
About the fact that young students will be studying such
a controversial role-model, Ofsted's former Chief Inspector
of Schools Chris Woodhead said, "Media studies has always
been nonsense, now it has degenerated into farce," before
dubbing Jade neither interesting or worthwhile enough for
students to be concentrating on.
A year-and-a-half on, we're not sure if Jade deserves a bit
of slack now, but we have to say that when we think of notable
people to study for GSCEs the names Shakespeare, Einstein,
Darwin, Newton and Brunel spring to mind...
...what IS the world coming-to when the name 'Goody'
gets added to that list?!
