'You only need to worry if you are CRAP at your job!'
Yeh and Mr and Mrs Doodlebug were the only ones who got killed in the blitz - it had their name written on it.
if you haven't seen much of life you shouldn't talk so authoritatively. I only have been in large numbers of schools because, I had to leave teaching when my wife got disabled. The average teacher who takes care of his end of things has a very limited view from his classroom.
The carnage from the whole raft of reforms that started with the national curriculum and took in OFSTED was immense. Not to mention the sheer waste of financial resources.
teaching is a funny business. the bloke taking four kids for 'A' level is of higher status than the genius of cunning who manages to motivate a class of 40 sociopaths. And when they need an inspector its invariably the blokes who have dodged the column with 'difficult' classes by working in posh schools that get chosen.
frequently the guy who has worked in a difficult schools is judged to be only worthy of such lowly duties as teaching the lower classes.
