"the English are a mongrel race with a mongrel language" she screeched at us, with one eye on the English students in the class. This strange person was a Primary School educator, who had been given the job to teach Secondary PGCE students, some of whom she hated due to the location of their birth. The fun didn't stop there. Strap in for this one. She did the following 1) Sent letters to the placement schools full of malicious and untrue remarks about a few of the trainees. This meant that the first few days of each placement, were very weird for the trainees, who had no idea that their character and integrity had been trashed 100% 2) Failed the essays of the trainees whom she had been glaring out,,.. mostly for being English... or just existing, we didn't know. 3) Her feedback was full of phrases like "and there you are … droning on" and "you're never going to be anything but tedious and pathetic are you?" Followed by an imitation of your voice and "I'm a celebrity get me outa here" as if that was something that a PGCE trainee would say. 4) Her lack of knowledge about the subject at Secondary level, didn't seem to bother her or bother the authorities either.... so rather than learn to do our job, we got a lot of Welsh nationalist propaganda, and some enthusiastic stories about drug taking in the seventies too.... Oh, an where to get magic mushrooms amid the countryside. 5) she was very keen on the occult and hated Christians. Eventually, I heard that the University replaced her, but I also heard that the anti-English racism went on for many years, but doesn't exist now.
