Telling it like it is
on 19 November 2006
I spent several highly stressful and completely pointless years teaching in the UK system before, thank God, returning to International School education. Like Frank here, I was stunned that the fourth largest economy in the world was educating its children in a manner more suited to the occupational therapy wing of a South American prison. Why don't any of the photocopiers ever work? Why spend millions on computers and then omit to employ any trained staff to maintain them? Why are staffrooms in such a neglected state that they would cause strike action at a Ukrainian pig farm? Why spend thousands of man hours writing, distributing and training in various disciplinary policies which are then perpetually ignored? I could go on for pages. Buy this book, make everyone you know read it and then post it to your MP.
