Yet another nail in the coffin of chrisWoodhead's reputation

    I had thought that the reputation of "the nubile Bristol Vith formers' favourite teacher" could not be further tarnished.

    Then I read the following:

    How could a perceptive, apparently all-knowing, teaching & schooling guru of his national and international repute possibly have failed to guarantee, in a school of which he was Chairman of Governors, a professional environment where it was impossible to perpetrate this wilderness of abuse?

    Perhaps his complacent comment, as reported in this article, gives us some clue?

    Woodhead was simply a placeman, there to carry out the government's bidding.

    He certainly bestrode the world of English (state) education like a colossus for at least a decade, whatever his provenance.
