Teacher Unions are the same the world over. They all¬†believe¬†that their education sectors are “national treasures” despite results and¬†empirical¬†evidence to the contrary.
Every now and then a¬†politician¬†comes along to challenge them and they become public enemy number one for daring to challenge the status quo.
Michael Gove was ridiculed by the president of the National Association of Head Teachers, who compared him to a hyperactive personal trainer.
“At times it feels as though we are at the whim of some kind of fanatical personal trainer, constantly urging us all to go faster, faster, higher and higher on a constant treadmill,” Bernadette Hunter told delegates attending the organisation’s annual conference in Birmingham.¬†
Ms Hunter said that the Government’s education policies were “damaging schools and negatively affecting pupils’ lives.”
She added that the state education system was a “national treasure worth fighting for.”
Our own teacher unions think our education system is the world’s best and national treasure too…they oppose every single thing proposed no matter the government.
Look at Berna dette Hunter’s comments…she clearly believes that they are doing just fine thank you very much and there is no need to improve. Typical union thinking…representing the mediocre and forcing it on the rest of us.
