    So what do we think? Groundhog Day on Thursday? Government making 11th hour changes to the results? Teachers estimated being ignored yet again as teachers’ professionalism has been undermined by all governments for so many years now? I can’t wait.

    Teachers had a chance to prove their professionalism and submitted record breaking results.

    Probably - I'm really hoping my better students are not penalized too much.

    Almost definitely.

    I think a u-turn on CAGs is out of the question though - if they do it for GCSE, logic dictates they'd have to follow suit on A-levels. Although 'logic' and this government are not exactly mutual entities.

    Still no news about next week. This really is a very uncaring attitude shown by those in charge...

    Well we were warned about this kind of thing by ‘poor’ Dom a long time ago.

    Boris Johnson’s new senior adviser and a key architect of Brexit gave his damning view on Conservative MPs at a conference in 2017, where he said:

    “People think, and by the way I think most people are right: ‘The Tory party is run by people who basically don’t care about people like me.’

    “That is what most people in the country have thought about the Tory party for decades. I know a lot of Tory MPs and I am sad to say the public is basically correct. Tory MPs largely do not care about these poorer people. They don’t care about the NHS. And the public has kind of cottoned on to that.”

    The complete lack of empathy and understanding shown by the government is just astonishing.

    .....their concern is getting the kids back into school - that's it.

    ...and they are going to start an advertising campaign next week - can you imagine.

    What do you think the slogan will be (because there must be a slogan"

    How about

    "Come on in - the school's lovely".

    "An apple a day keeps the virus away"

    or

    "Please go back and save my sorry a**e"

    you will be safe

    more importantly though, your parents can get back to work...

    Dreading the whole start to school. It’s normal to have sleepless nights the days before for all teachers regardless of the many years of teaching, but this year it’s on a new level! I’m primary but I can’t begin to imagine the logistical nightmare of you guys in secondary. Williamson’s advertising campaign is simply his (Dominic’s) pathetic attempt at diverting media attention from the results fiasco!

    "Going back to school is as easy as ABC - All Back to Class"

    (+ Boris Johnson banging his fists, shouting the slogan. "I absolutely insist we have a moral obligation to send our children All Back to Class")

    ... in reality: "ABC = All Blame the Conservatives"

    This says what we already know.
    Slogan (origin)
    The word slogan is derived from slogorn which was an Anglicisation of the Scottish Gaelic and Irish sluagh-ghairm (sluagh "army", "host" + gairm "cry").
