The government is sailing the teaching profession into the rocks

    Teaching has become such an awful job and workplaces such hellholes that nobody is going to want to do it.
    People who work in other industries seem to have a much healthier work/life balance, are happier and have as much if not more money.
    No one is going to want to work in education the way it is going unless they do not have a life and are people whose personalities fit with the vile industry it has become. Treating people like dirt does not work.
    I want to personally see it collapse, to demonstrate that the horrible, cut throat, sneaky industry that it is is not working.
    Even in the private sector the morals and general human decency is better than how teachers are treated by fellow colleagues and senior management with naming and shaming, job insecurity, constantly watching you back or what you say for fear of being stitched up, judgemental face fitting and politics at the expense of respect for intellect.
    Do not do it. Leave!

    One significant flaw with your logic is that it denies the role of (English state school) teachers themselves in the process. A denial evident both in your headline and in the contents of your article.

    No need for a crazed kamikaze pilot in Elizabeth House ( "old currency") given the propensity of the local oarsmen and steersmen for malevolence towards their fellow professionals (sic) and rock-steering of the-boat-itself.
