After few glasses of wine I am even replying to my posts! Anyway I wrote to Ronnie Smith and laid bare my anguish over the sellout of Supply Teachers. His one line response was that if I felt that I was being victimised then I should consult my ttrade union (ouch!). (Someone else who doesn't like some home truths!) Just wondered how you might persuade me to join the EIS and become active as a Supply Teacher - once I've been scraped up off the floor!
