    It used to be an exciting place, with rucks galore as people who cared about little ones argued the toss.. Now it's all about baselines, etc. What a shame.

    Data data data data.......no room for unique individuals growing and developing at their own pace any more.

    It's a shame that the EY forum is viewed as such a minority interest.

    The primary forum is not much better.all about desperation for ideas, superb lesson observation plans and phonics.

    I haven't been on for years, it got too depressing for the reasons mentioned as did teaching in EYs in some schools.

    Being retired and doing supply teaching in Early Years is still a happy experience, but I feel for the regular teachers.

    I can't speak for all subject forums as I don't visit many of them, but the D&T forum died the death after the site change. Prior to the change, it was fairly lively, but pretty much all there is now is one or two posters per month asking "Is there anyone there?"

    You'd find more chances of discussion taking place on TES Australia, and that's saying something.

    I wouldn't mind being paid a pension to moderate that site, I can tell you that for nothing.
