It has been a roller coaster ride since I last posted. That is if the coaster only goes one way and is controlled by a Tory idiot called Gove. I find the disestablishment of our public education system deeply depressing and all the more so for the 19th century model they are putting in its place. The old system wasn’t perfect and too much dumbing down had taken place but that is a function of politics not those in schools. We also have an ex- head for a chief inspector whose view of headship is so out of kilter with my observations and experience, why would I want to do his version of the job? Football management without the financial rewards.
