I have always supported teachers and admire the work they do. Anyone who has spent time in a classroom understands teachers earn every penny they get and more, so can I put that one to bed. I have learnt a lot today by the number of comments placed on this Blog, some by those who admit to being teachers, have been rude , personal and offensive. I would not dream of writing about a person I did not know in such a manner. You have every right to disagree and I respect that. I was actually trying to get freedom for schools to make decisions themselves not be hampered by health and safety regulations in certain emergency situations.
