Let's ask the Chinese to set up a 'Re-education' camp for all our learn'ed Professors.

    So, a new addition to the seemingly endless stream of dumber-than-dumb pearls of wisdom (based on new research, of course) emerges. Sue O'Brien thinks potential new teachers need honest and impartial advice. Last week we had Professor Twiselton blessing us all with her observations that teachers need more variety. A few weeks before that Professor Allen told a waiting world that more / better CPD was the answer to all our problems.

    No mention of workload, behaviour, salary, working hours, the McDonaldisation of the profession, the stress, violence against teachers etc etc etc etc. Nope. Just endless nonsense.

    Now there are a lot of things I don't like or agree with, when discussing the Chinese re-education camps for the masses in a particular group and a lot of what they get up to is downright distasteful at best. But with a bit of tweaking, they might be suitable for all the staff in our University Education Research departments.

    So, I would suggest sending them all to a camp in say the Gobi desert, not for long, about five years should do the trick, followed by a stint in a real, actual school for a year, doing the job that teachers actually do, warts and all.

    Then they can comment.

    Maybe they should now try teaching if they think they are up to it . Teaching has turned into a football. :p:p:p
