I was fascinated to hear the report on my local BBC radio station this morning that Mr Gove wants to speed up capability proceedings in order to enable head teachers to get rid of failing staff at greater speed. The response from the local NUT spokes person was to say that he thought this was playing into the hands of bullying management. Then the report ended. I waited and waited but there didn't seem to be the aftermath of shock and horror I expected. There was no response from the local authority, Mr Gove certainly didn't respond, the presenter didn't seem to pick up on it... nor did the people calling into the show. I wonder why no one was shocked by the statement from a teaching union that there was bullying within school management in the first place!!!
