This thread seems full of heightened emotions! Reading it over it does seem that some Ta's feel that they are toogood to do admin! I generally do my own, as well as displays but my TA (and yes I do say 'my' and I know for a fact this does not offend her) is Blimmin brilliant and always willing to assist in any capacity I need. I have total respect for her and the work she does, would never treat her as a dogsbody but the fact is, even though most of us do, there are certain tasks that teachers were officially freed from doing. Well they still need doing. TA's are there to support learning and preparing displays and copying resources is all part of that. I was a TA and had an admin slot timetabled in. I think the role is different in secondary and for those attached to a child rather than class or yeargroup.
