    Right now all teachers are on holiday pretending they aren't teachers...

    ...but in the course of that, lots of them must be remembering they are parents!

    Perhaps... not me! The Dau-Be did go to an Academy... her mother is most surprised how much I don't like them as she bought into the Tory spin [and previous Labour spin] about them.

    I'll share the link, but I've already signed the petition. :)

    I really hope not.

    It's too easy to lapse back into apathy after an initial burst of enthusiasm/anger.

    I think it could be the start of something more than just the petition.
    Parents Defending Education - a rebrand already! - could be a banner to unite behind that Nicky Morgan etc. can't just dismiss as blobby, negative, lighthouse teachers.

    Lighthouse teachers? Beacons of common sense, warning of the dangers lying ahead...

    I'm sure no other interpretation could be applied.
