READER'S LETTER: What might a potential future employer think about Spalding Grammar School bag ban boy?

By Spalding Today Letters

I don’t know anything about the relative merits of various bag sizes at Spalding Grammar School, but I do wonder if Jacob Ford considers what a potential future employer or other person involved with furthering his career might think on reading the article 'Student excluded after 'silent protest' over controversial bags policy'.

For instance, Jacob says he submitted a 3,300 word document on his views. It doesn’t take so many words to set out salient facts and state a preferred view, so does Jacob have difficulty expressing himself effectively?

And might that be the driver behind the circus he engaged in with the variety of weird containers he took to school? For all I know, Jacob may be an intelligent person, but he seems to enjoy presenting himself as disruptive and immature. Perhaps he should take a few lessons on how to gain self-insight and how best to influence a situation he doesn’t like.
