My son's school have tried to rush them through an extra (and to my mind pointless) vocational GCSE this year, in year 11. Needless to say there hasn't really been enough time to do it properly, so now they're offering one day in the Easter holidays as an intervention session. I really don't think teachers should be asked to do this and I really want my son to focus on his other far more important subjects, and also have a proper break from school. But the poor old teacher is going to have to be in school anyway, unless no one takes up the offer, I suppose! It feels unsupportive to say no thanks, but I strongly disagree with the endless panicking because there hasn't been time to do the GCSE that the school and the school alone thought would be a good thing. Would it be really irresponsible not to send him? The teacher has been great so I want to do what's best for her really. And I'm pretty sure that isn't coming into school for a day!
