Not that I've got experience of these teaching unions though. But as far as I can see from the union I'm mixed up with (oh yes you might have guessed it) it's full of people that actually seem to care about the welfare of other people rather than having the 'I'm alright Jack' attitude of Certain Other Organisations. Can't have people like that teaching our children. I'd much prefer ex-soldiers or something sensible like that (and they're good at the corporal punishment too, and can shout loudly. What more do you need to be a teacher, surely. Don't know how good their Latin is, mind).

(thank you for your encouraging words Nigel. We can stand on top of a barrow and threaten them with tomatoes if they get too serious)


Not really, I made the comment advisedly and in full command of the facts thanks.

I did guess it btw! Don't really get your all or nothing stance that if you're against the selfishness of some unions (more an example of the I'm alright jack mentality surely?) When everyone else is making huge concessions yet they throw their toys out the pram causing more suffering to the rest of us; that you're a nasty person with an I'm alright Jack mentality.

I merely highlighted the inescapable fact that since the predominance of these views in teachers and guidelines we've seen a huge deterioration in moral standards, politeness, and educational standards despite the fact that we get record exam results year on year yet employers are saying many are unemployable as they don't have a sufficient grasp of numeracy or literacy.

Could teachers just be teaching them to succeed in exams to skew the results in their favour? Surely not?!

So we'll just accept failure and not try to do anything to improve the dire state we're in cos those nasty tories aren't good people that fit in with our views.
