Perhaps it's time for a mass petition from teachers in that Authority to submit a mass petition to their councillors? If it could be organised so that the petitions were only sent if at least (say) 50% of staff in a school had signed, I don't imagine I would have any difficulty in supporting such a move. If, of course I were to be working in the affected Authority. They surely couldn't sack all of <strike>us</strike> them????
