Thanks Tom. Maybe he should go back to a career in journalism in Scotland. He is very good at waffling about things he knows nothing about; inciting unrest and spreading falsehood. Back to Scotland mate … you’re upsetting my equilibrium.

As most of you know, four of the band went to school together. It was a great school that specialised in art from the age of 11. Not the. Usual survival-of-the-fittest, lord of the flies culture you find in most school playgrounds.

But even there Michael gove would have been mercilessly bullied. I imagine he has always had a face that begs people to slap it !!

And it's well known that people who were bullied when they were young crave positions of power. When they get there (police, politicians, journalists etc) they put there revenge plots into action. Hatched over years of sitting lonely In Their bedrooms, patiently waiting for the day they can get their own back on all the better looking, more popular, cleverer people who made his life such a misery.

In other words, victims of bullying sometimes become bullies themselves, and they are the worst.

And that's how gove runs his department. He has attack dogs waiting to pounce on any expert that criticises his nutty policies. One vocal professor was the victim of an anonymous campaign on twitter that suggested the professor had mental problems (goves department famously plays the man rather than the ball). Gove dismisses the opinion of experts, but goves only qualifications to be education secretary is. . . . . . . . . . He was once a journalist working for Murdoch.

No wonder he wants to deregulate the teaching profession so that schools can use unqualified teachers, he's out of his depth with the ones that ARE qualified.

He certainly is reaping vengeance against the teaching profession!!!

That would be an absolute disaster and the staff turnover would be phenomenal. Even qualified, long standing teachers are leaving the profession due to the pressure.

Hope you got to take a little time off this week somewhere. Every teacher has my total respect. After running my own private small school for 21 years I now T.A. and cover teach in lower school. Last year the NQT I worked with had a nervous breakdown at the end of the year. I often see teachers in tears, as the pressure becomes too great. I am not actually paid through the holidays which makes my wage a pittance for qualifications and 30+ yrs experience ( £9000 PA) Most teachers teach for the desire to help others but it isn't a profession that is respected by many now days . I am desperately seeking an alternative career.

Agreed, we don,t want him back!

I have the utmost respect for teachers as it seems they have no back up from anyone in positions of authority.
Keep up the good Work!

Well maybe that's the luxury of being a deputy head! How many hours of teaching does he do? How many parents does he have to meet in the course of a year? How many lessons does he have to plan? How many books does he have to mark? How many resources does he have to prepare? How many after school clubs does he run? How many students does he mentor?

In my view a deputy head teacher’s role is completely different to that of a teacher. The only similarities are that we have the same holidays. I am not undermining the role of deputy or head teachers but in the context of my thread I was stating a fact that most teachers work way beyond their working day in order to manage all that is required of us. Ultimately we want our students to be successfully adults with good prospects for the future.
