I've now got a link to the petition on the right hand side of my page under the book adverts. Here's the code for it.
Feel free to send it to anyone who does a blog, or webpage or has the ear of Tony Blair. Try the newspapers or the TES (not sure how much they like me though)
I've also emailed the Ratemyteachers site suggesting that they might improve their image by putting a link up. You never know, they might go for it. (Thanks for that suggestion, 'Whacko')
There's been some debate about the wording of the petition. To be honest, I don't really think it's that important. My aim is simply to draw attention to the scale of the discipline problems we face in State Schools (of which the Government is in denial and the public are largely unaware.) We can worry about the details later.
This isn't a staff meeting so let's not endlessly debate. Let's just get on with it and do what we can.
ps. A robin on the calendar today! One point to HPB.
