What's people opinions?
I'll let you know when I come down.
Oh, sorry. That was a former bank chairman and methodist minister, wasn't it?
I've just taken some paracetamol - does that count ?
Only if you snorted them.
I don't get the point of the article. Are we meant to be scandalised that teachers might not be perfect?
What a rubbish article. He quotes an alleged drug dealer and a landlord as his sources and leaps to the bizarre conclusion that teachers might need to be drug tested.
Give him a good dose of a substance that rhymes with Niagara. He needs it.
Shock horror - teachers are people and some have undesirable habits
Article author describes himself as "A school teacher who runs an educational maths website and blog... www.atstudycloud.co.uk" then finishes the piece with "School teacher, blogger & operates a maths online resource for 5 to 11year old children (www.atstudycloud.co.uk)".
So, his controverial article is in no way intended to draw traffic towards his maths online resource for 5 to 11 year old children at www.atstudycloud.co.uk then - that's good to know.

I don't take drugs and my

That report isn't worth the LSD impregnated paper it's written on
So one teacher, in one area of London, was thought by his neighbour, who has never said more than hello, to be smoking a bit of dodgy stuff. It's a giant leap from there to suggesting that all teachers should be randomly tested for drug use!
Sports stars are tested because drugs help them cheat. I don't imagine many have tested positive for dope and banned because they are supposed to be a role model. The analogy is madness!
Don't laugh - mandatory drug tests are the norm in the US
They'd never find the money to do it here - and to be fair there would be very, very few positive tests.
What about Colorado, where dope is legal?
I blame jude.
Not sure about individual states
I'm told many flat surfaces in the members's WCs in Westminster would fail a drugs test.
