    Sir Michael Wilshaw, star of Homes Under the Hammer in which his other life as a property developer was revealed on the TV when we saw how he did up a tiny terrace house to make a handsome profit, yesterday warned headteachers not to take part in TV reality shows:

    Generous answer: Perhaps he's forgotten he did that show.

    Ungenerous answer: @~#$ &$%^# :mad:

    I really want to know why he thinks they give a "distorted view of education" . Is it because they make the daily grind look too good or does he feel the daily grind /behaviour makes it look too bad.

    Personally I think the 'Educating....' Series is far too cosy and nice to be a real reflection of schools today.

    On the other hand if he is suggesting that head teachers should not be trying to be medja stars or be furthering their (consultancy) careers through these shows then I'm with him.

    But the politest thing I can say about him (without getting banned). Is that he really is on another planet. (Other phrases would include the words 'rectum' 'own' 'up' 'far' 'so' etc)

    So it seems that 'hypocrisy' is another word absent from the Wilshavian mini-universe? :rolleyes:

    A career in politics surely beckons. Any Rotten Boroughs holding by-elections any time soon?

    What I dodn't understand is why thoese series seem to concentrate on secondary.What of FE or primary. I am sure there is a nice cosy primary academy near you.
