What has that got to do with what we are discussing? Why suddenly use that as an attack on me just because I'm trying to engage in a civilised discussion with you? And do you think after 35 years in education - 20 in a school - I have any illusions about just how badly children can behave? If you were at Jordanhill during my time, that means I have at least three times your experience – do you think everyone has managed to keep it all hidden from me in all that time? I find your personalisation thoroughly demeaning and insulting. You have just alienated someone who was attempting to build bridges. I hope that isn't how you routinely respond to your pupils.
