On a thread in the Science forums about Compulsory Field Trips students who do not go were described as a 'pain in the bum' and 'never the high flyers'. I saw red and pointed out the harsh economic climate out there and that I could not afford to send my children as a supply teacher on field courses any more and how when unemployed the general consensus amongst Daily Mail readers was that if I am unemployed I am feckless and workshy. After all 'everyone' seems to agree that we all have a wonderful time on benefits. The complacent 'teacher' that answered described my slightly forceful posting as a rant. I see what I said as the unfortunate truth. Anyone else come across examples of 'I'm all right Jack' complacency? By the way I don't apologise for anything I posted.
