A new HT at a local Secondary school has made some public comments and claims effectively denigrading other local schools. I don’t work at either the school itself, or any of it’s local ‘competitors’, but am infuriated by the HT’s entirely ‘competitive’ comments, and would genuinely like to challenge him / hold him to account (especially given his supposed core values of ‘respect’, ‘collaboration’, etc. Unlike local teaching colleagues, I’m safe from his influence. I want to be professional but ‘rigorous’ in my criticism. What’s an appropriate way to challenge his (publically recorded) statements? I’ve never written to a local newspaper to raise the issue (s) but am considering this as an option. Another option would be to write to their Chair of Governors (but I would be unlikely to get a response, and it wouldn’t be publically visible. What options are there?
