Anyone who frequents the TES early years forum knows full well that they are NOT ALONE in their analysis of the early years scenario. The ridiculous bureaucracy of the previous years is precisely WHY the coalition government set up its early years review. That does not mean they will necessarily draw the most sensible conclusions from the review - but it does mean that everyone is in a really STRONG position to stand their ground. In other words, this is a COLLECTIVE scenario - and not one where you should be leaving your PROFESSION and giving up on your LIVELIHOOD as individuals. STAND STRONG.
