Actual conversation: Head: ‘Shuaib,we’ve got an excellent teaching and learning idea. Drum roll... we’re going to start marking in pink as ‘pink makes you think’. Me: ‘But what evidence is there that pink improves student progress?’. Head: ‘But pink makes you think 😉’ Me: 🤦‍♂️

This is not fake news. This is an actual tea bag company having to explain their position because one single politician tweeted a photo of their product & the abuse they then received. I mean wow beyond words.

The same old crack pots have come out of the woodwork again then! 🙄 Didn't you only post that as a joke anyway? I think it shows how devoid of humour some people are on social media.

Hearing loads of stories of mocksteds happening, including mock 90 minute phone-calls the day before and deep-dives ahoy. Just appalling.

SOS - Save Old Sarum Feb 24
Photos taken today. More storm damage to Hangar 3, almost on an exponential rate now. This is a Grade-II* listed structure, built in 1917. How can it be left in this state? Very sad to share these photos but without awareness, nothing will happen. Please share.

SOS - Save Old Sarum Feb 25
RAF Old Sarum, an aerial photo taken looking east, September 1918. Many aeroplanes are evident as the base was a Training Depot Station. The airfield site and the hangars have changed very little since it's inception, now let's ensure its preservation for future generations.

No. Its poor leadership, suffocating accountability, excessive workload that are the cause of people leaving.
