Robert Halfon, Higher Education Minister has come up with a nifty wheeze. Mary Bousted said When asked if it would be a good idea to have retired teachers working in schools given older people are more at risk of dying if they contract coronavirus, Mr Halfon cited the example of the retired doctors and nurses who had successfully returned to support the NHS. As we know, some of these retired medics died prematurely. Maybe if they'd treated teachers better, some of them would still be working in mainstream schools. I note there's no pay. I note that few recent graduates (the other group he's thinking to ask) have the independent means to work for free. As for me, I will be continuing to work with the disadvantaged children I already work with.
