I just want a bit of a rant really, and also to canvass opinion. Some of the people in my department are quite selfish and lazy, it's starting to really annoy me. People don't want to try new ways of doing things 'because it's easier' to do it another way, even if that's not the best way for the kids. We've been discussing time tables for next year and some staff were basically demanding certain classes; one member of staff refused to teach Y13 Lit because she only likes the Y12 texts, another demanded a Set 1 because she has had a Set 4 this year. The HOD just lets everybody get what they want but I think it's awful. We're also doing Lit texts the kids find really boring and dry because certain members of staff like them. We are there for the kids and who teaches what should be based on where people can make the biggest difference and improvements. I totally agree that it's unfair for the same people to have bottom set all the time etc. but I think demanding and throwing a strop til you get your own way is unncessary.
