    Nicky Morgan posted on Mumsnet and was savaged - the link is on Education News.
    What if Mumsnet actually has more influence than the nation's teachers?
    Food for thought.

    Can that woman open her mouth (or her laptop) without putting her foot in it?

    Does NM actually believe the stuff she writes?

    Would you ask Radio4 More or Less to check all your statistics?

    Popcorn, anyone?

    If the Conservatives actually do value teachers and their skills/training, then why are academies free to employ unqualified teachers? It's nonsense

    The comments are overwhelmingly negative - as they should be!

    Complete and utter rubbish. You ought to be ashamed of yourself for peddling this as an improvement for children's educations.

    30 pages of comments... the challenge?... to find someone positive about the changes.

    Quite, @Flere-Imsaho . All mums on Mumsnet have been to school themselves. They are experts. We only teach. We are not experts. Ms Morgan can't see wood for the trees- she's been a little stupid...

    Teachers' Standard 8:4:
    A teacher must:
    take responsibility for improving teaching through appropriate professional development, responding to advice and feedback from colleagues

    Practice as you preach, Nicki.

    We need to get everyone on board to make a difference, not just teachers.

    Any who has or might have children or grandchildren now or in the near future.

    What about the teaching unions? Might they be able to help?:D

    Joint parents/teachers action?

    True but let's be honest, these are the same Mums who see us a lazy, on holiday all the time and abusing kids if we sanction them for throwing bricks at us. Morgan might get a kicking on this one thread but there are oh so many others she could start where these fickle mothers would praise her and support her to the hilt.

    I was serious. Mumsnet is HUGE. Advertisers and politicians use it to gauge public opinion. Nobody can turn around and say they only object because of worries about their jobs, the way people do with teachers. I said somewhere else that opposition to this has to include everyone, not just teachers.
