Doric to be banned from Aberdeen Schools
Shock news that the Doric dialect is to be banned from being spoken by pupils and teachers across the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire schools
Doric Phrases are saddened to hear that our beloved Doric dialect will soon not be permitted to be spoken in classes throughout Grampian. Education chiefs have made this radical decision after much consultation between teachers, their representatives at the National Union for Teachers (NUT) and the heads of education at Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Councils. The decision was made due to the growing multicultural population of the North East and the need for everyone to understand each other in class.
One angry teacher, who did not wish to be named, told us:
Fit a chick, ah hiv vrocht in Aiberdeen fur years athoot ony ane nae unerstaning me.
Supply teacher, Olaf Sproil, from the Netherlands, also disagrees with the decision:
Michty me! Fit a stooshie aboot naething. Aabody kens how tae spik Doric. Tis a sharny decision.
Parents are in uproar about the decision and shall be setting up a meeting with representatives from each Parent Council of schools across the region along with local Councillors. Their joint aim is to overturn the decision and keep our proud heritage. It is hoped that the meeting will take place at midday on the 1st April.
