    Someone might like to ask "Is this why you're making it compulsory?"

    Why don't you consult qualified teachers before making your proposals? Are you scared that they won't support your plans?

    Why, if you value teachers so much (cough) do you think we only deserve a 1% rise when MPs ,who do not understand anything about educating children, want 10?
    Why do you not listen to the teachers, children and mental health professionals who have much more expertise?

    I can't stand watching QT - it makes my blood boil. So what happened with Nicky? Was she challenged? Could she answer the questions?

    Same here, but I made an exception last night.
    IMO Nicky Morgan was terrible, and unable to justify 'academisation'

    The papers today seem to be focussing on her response to cuts to disability benefits.Not a lot on academies.

    If you want to subject yourself to her hopeless response, it is in the link below from about 34 mins

    I sat through morgan's appearance on question time and it was clear to me she had been briefed to downplay Osbo's disastrous cut to disabled benefits. On academisation what annoyed me was her assertion that academies were far superior to local authority schools with no evidence to back it up. An out and out porky pie!!

    Nicky, dear. Would you mind if I observed you teaching my class so I can learn from your superior wisdom and experience of educational brilliance? Last thing on any Friday afternoon is a good time for me. Thanks.
