There seems to be a problem with the education system in Madrid. I am very sorry to report this, but the evidence has come in.
Here's how I know. We went off to yet another government office today in the quest for the children's citizenship papers. This, we thought, was nearly the final hurdle, indeed, for Eldest it was meant to be the last one.
But it seems, Madrid failed to learn one of those 'all I need to know I learned in kindergarten' rules. That would be sharing. Seems the papers have to go to Madrid to be looked at and they have to write it down. Inscribir-la.
This is where the other educational problem seems to have appeared. It seems that in Madrid they can only write very veeeerrrrrrrrryyyyy sloooooooowwwwwwwlllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyy. It is going to take them a year to write down her name.
Something is going to have to be done with the education system in this country.
Really, it is a crying shame.
