System implosion imminent I think! Russell & co have had 8 years to tell us what CfE is all about and they still have not managed to do that. If a teacher had a class for 8 years and had not managed to teach them anything over that period they would no doubt be sacked. The fact the Leadership Class in Scottish Education is prepared to engage in serious brinkmanship with teachers over CfE should be of very great concern to parents. Above all it indicates a very serious flaw at the heart of the Scottish Education System, i.e. who runs it. Scottish Education should fundamentally be run by TEACHERS, and not ignorant Politicians, self-seeking Directors of Education, bullying Inspectors and the like. They are the NUMPTIES that have got us to the point of potential meltdown.
