Dealing with Teachers

it is hard yeards dealing with teachers, they are like weeds, no sooner you knock them down they sprout back up seemingly more virulent:

MICHAEL GOVE, the Education Secretary, wants to make it easier to sack poor teachers – but he may need to take a long-term view. I once asked the late, great Sir Alec Clegg, chief education officer of the West Riding of Yorkshire, how he dealt with bad teachers. There was a long pause. “What I say is this,” he replied at last. “While there’s death, there’s hope.”

    as a teacher afte having worked in many other professions it is a pretty constant job-where it helps to have diversity. I cannot believe how many knock the proffession but wouldn’t last in the position a day. Anyone keen to swap for a day?

      You will find that those on the right are very big on attacking teachers but could never do the job, wouldnt know how to do the job or do it for the pay that is offered. Put that with the lies Key tells about teachers and there you have the position of the right on the amazing people who work in teaching in NZ.
