I don't know where the head got the idea that offices are paperless. From a 1970's edition of Tomorrow's World perhaps, which is probably the nearest she's ever got to an office. There aren't many offices that are really paperless. Ours doesn't store anything on paper, but nearly everything starts off as paper and is scanned in. Everyone chooses to make notes on paper. With a pen. Paperless doesn't mean there's no paper, paradoxically. A better way to reduce paper would be to go back to boring old (accurate and well written and reusable) textbooks rather than scrappy photocopied worksheets. I find it really hard to take in things from a screen compared to a book.
