There'd be a queue a mile long

A secondary schoolteacher in the UK has become the first to be struck off for life for incompetence.

Nisar Ahmed was found to lack the “basic skills” of anyone entering the teaching profession by a General Teaching Council (GTC) disciplinary panel which believed he was incapable of ever improving.

The queue here if this was ever implemented would start with the head of the PPTA and NZEI and have a very, very long tail.

Hell half my teachers would have “qualified” as lacking basic skills of anyone entering the teaching profession, most being cowards and bullies hiding in the schooling system. Some are even principals now and heads of department.

I had teachers that rarely turned up for class, and when they did abused us all for being thickies. Ones who skited that they could kick a rugby ball over the goal posts in gumboots from halfway, but strangely couldn’t teach accounting. One who would cane the whole class first class of the year to teach us all what would happen of we crossed him (He was also an ex-Speaker’s brother). One who sung in the Dorian Choir, had a body like a half sucked throatie and the demeanor of a creepy little man and a penchant for caning below the shorts or around the kidneys. One who used us as slave labour at his house when we were on detention. One who wrote on my school reportA splendid exam result achieved with little obvious effort” and who was a PPTA agitator and constantly abused me for my fathers politics and who tried desperately to scale my results so I wouldn’t be the top of the class. One who used to throw chalk dusters or chunks of chalk at us and make some hold it in their mouth, dusty side down as a punishment.

My memories of teachers are far from fond. Some are still there in the system with all their latent nastiness. The only saving grace is that they can no longer send for the cane. Instead they will be bullying and destroying through their words.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
