Patience, old bean! We aren't all strapped to a computer all day you know, and anyway, this Olympics isn't going to watch itself! To summarise... I am of the view that excellent, professionally skilled teaching is disproportionately advantageous to less advantaged students. Therefore, it helps to narrow the achievement gap between rich and poor, and is likely to raise levels of equality and promote social justice. You, however, don't believe this - you think that teaching is a simple, exam-focused activity, and I suspect that this is reflective of the types of school you have taught in (although I could be wrong of course). From assessing my opinions, you have deemed that I am an infantile Marxist, and you have proceeded to claim that, because I would (and did) send my child to the local comprehensive, irrespective of its reputation, I am some sort of morally disreputable intellectual coward (admit it - you think I'm one of the 'dense' ones don't you?). I reply, with a growing sense of weariness borne of repetition, that I don't think that choice of school for one's child is adequate grounds for making rather unpleasant judgements about a person's moral fibre, even, and I say this in the spirit of magnanimity, if they choose to send their child off to boarding school aged 6.
