There you go again: ask the teachers. Teachers are not a homogeneous group. Which teachers? The majority who are collegiate and proactive and want to work with parents, pupils, SMT and "experts"? Or the tiny minority who want to simply moan and whine and blame everyone else and lash out all the time and offer nothing constructive? You know for someone who bleets continuously about being "attacked" for their views and wanting to help it seems that when people raise concerns about their situation all you want to do is tell them that they are a bunch of whiners, (well the ones that see things form a different perspective than you) Face facts teachers are very rarely consulted. The only body who has ever asked for my opinion and taken it on board are my union!
