Brits want manners to be taught in school.

London, October 15 ( ANI ): Three in four people in Britain believe good manners should be taught in school as part of the national curriculum, a new survey has found.

A survey by supermarket Waitrose found that good manners are becoming a thing of the past with 72 per cent of those polled saying people have become more rude over the last decade.

It used to be the teaching of the three Rs that was considered the foundation of a good school education, but the poll found that today most people would prefer the four Rs - reading, writing, arithmetic and respect, the Telegraph reported.

The poll was conducted to mark the launch of the book How Rude! Modern Manners Defined, which will be published on Tuesday. ( ANI )
