There's a point to be made about that, Peace.

I think there may be considerable differences between UK school governors and US or Canadian school boards.

Lts and Jonm are I think talking about the British setup, and they are absolutely right in saying that the majority of our school governors are prepared to fight for what is best for the pupils.

Also, they tend not to involve thmselves in certain peripheral issues which in the US at least tend to be very contentious.
