Knives in school

Did anyone else notice there was an announcement yesterday that metal detectors were to be installed to prevent knives being taken into schools and, today, there was an announcement that cooking will be a compulsory school subject. What will they cook? Jelly and blancmange?

More seriously, most boys carried at least penknives when I was at school and I had to carry either a jack-knife or a sheath-knife when I was in Scout uniform. Like most boys, I got into fights from time to time, but I never drew my knife or had one drawn against me.
