The BBC certainly knows how to shoot itself in the foot with a Howitzer.

Why do so many ‘friends’ of keep giving interviews to the media etc about how “troubled” she was?🤔 If she was so troubled, maybe they should have tried to help her when she was alive, instead of making money sharing her personal demons now she is not. So sad 😔

When I wrote about this in TES some time ago, a number of secondary heads did not express that view. They were very proud of the quality of schooling they were providing and believed more and more parents were too.

I suspect many heads of those schools wil disagree. The argument for and defence of comprehensive schooling is always political and never educational. It’s never about delivering high quality schooling. Literally ‘for the many.’

The educational challenge politics should concern itself with is creating new alternative schools that parents, teachers and even kids don’t perceive as second best to grammars. Grammar schools were never the problem - old style secondary moderns were.

McCarthyist style naming, presumably in the hope of shaming, is fast becoming a favourite ploy by some Edutwits.

Worth reading before the next time you hear anyone extolling the virtues of ‘AI.’

His link between austerity and teachers leaving before 5 years is also deceitful nonsense. Teachers have been leaving at these high levels both in the US and here, for decades.

And far too often the training that is available is generic pedagogy when it needs to be subject specialism. There is a huge imbalance between the two.

“After a decade of punishing austerity, a third of teachers leave the classroom within five years because of low pay, long hours and excessive workload.” A high proportion of teachers have left within 5 years, here and in the US, for as long as I can remember. Worthy guff.

Judging by most social media - "digital literacy" is an oxymoron.

Love the theme tune to BBC’s but would they do something about the geography. Breakfast on Parliament Hill, chambers in Lincolns Inn but picking their kids up from Dulwich College. Wow they are speedy!

There really is no virtue signaller like an educator is there. They wear their self righteousness like a drag queen in one of Princess Di’s hand me downs.

This is exactly what’s happening. It’s a gruesome circus. “The cancellation of one’s ability to earn a livelihood is the modern equivalent of a public execution. In this way, the desire to scrub from public life alleged sinners has a medieval quality to it.”

Dear As former (fairly) senior cop with 30 years service behind me I feel obliged to point out that if you think the inaction of your officers at the university today is increasing public confidence in the police service you are in the wrong job!

Subject scholarship is the poor relative of all school reform efforts.
