Troops in classrooms! Of all the Tory wet dreams coming true at the moment, surely this is among those that will mean the most to them. A childhood is basically deprived if it doesn’t at some point feature a memorable encounter with someone displaying the lingering effects of post-traumatic stress. Remember dumbbell guy (“Die, die, die!”)? Multiply the stress he was already under by a couple of tours of military service, and we can look forward to many more similar exciting incidents in schools—which, as this pioneering project established, can go uninvestigated for a splendidly long time.

(Does anyone come through childhood WITHOUT post-traumatic stress?)

Possibly not, but the experience is certainly enlivened by being exposed to someone else's at close quarters. The generations of people who were lucky enough to be taught by fragile and unpredictable ex-military types are these days too old to influence government policy, which is possibly why this bright idea has been put forward.

Anyway, Andy McNab reckons there's no such thing as post-traumatic stress, so it'll probably all be fine.
