Knight School changes U.K. town

UPI News Service, 11/13/2005 

The town of Spilsby, England, has taken a page out of medieval history and formed a Knight School for its youth to teach manners and values.

Police Sgt. Gary Brown created the school after he learned that 9-year-old children vandalized a church and a cemetery of war dead.

Brown formed the Knight School to instill a chivalrous code of courtesy, respect and pride for those age 6 to 8, the Sunday Telegraph reported.

More than 130 children have been "knighted" from the school and Brown has set local community projects to keep the children and teens busy.

Since the Knight School started, the streets are clean, anti-social behavior and crime rates have been halved, Brown said. Children now offer seniors a seat on the bus.

"Instilling a sense of personal pride, of mannerly and compassionate behavior and of respect for oneself and for others in a child, I believe, is the way to becoming happier and more responsible as they enter young adulthood," Brown said.
