440. Stephjoy Girls School
Girls were missing from the school and the media speaks of use of corporal punishment. It is clear that the schools use of mock exams and the use of an odd system where the schools unlike Danish school not focus as putting as many through the schooling based on quantity rather than quality pushes the students too hard.
Focus needs to on the social heritage of the students. There is not something called fulfilling their potential. Children from working class families often tend to have shorter education than parents with a more academically background. No boarding school can make a difference in that fact.
When they try as hard as they did at Stephjoy Girls School, they only create unhappy students and then it is no longer fun to be there as a teenager.
The school closed in 2015 due to a fire which struck a dormitory. Investigation showed lack of standard regarding fire regulations.
