@Anonymity I have every sympathy. I really get how frustrating it is to feel like the only one who sees the problem and is prepared to do something about it yet realises you need the support of (unwilling) others in order to not end up as the scapegoat. You've kind of answered my question actually. I did wonder whether the majority of those coming into teaching now are already too institutionalised to question/act independently, as everything is so micromanaged/fear-based now. Which is a shame in itself. To those of you who feel you are helping your colleagues and children by being compliant, I will say that you are just supporting a system which is stifling and unhealthy at the very least. Short term pain for long term gain, for everyone. I can tell you this would not be happening in France. Solidarité, anyone?
