As usual the new school year kicks off with that special brand of agony- the Training Day. Emails from various parts of the Country have confirmed that the usual culprits are alive and well- ie The Five Hats and The Five R's along with a couple of horror stories involving women from the Council with short hair, large earrings and funny shoes.
I spoke to a friend who works in IT and asked what his lot would do if they were treated to any of these delights. He just looked at me with a puzzled expression and said:
"Just walk out- what do you think we'd do? Our time's valuable, we don't work in the Public Sector."
It's a forlorn hope but I wish that more teachers would stand up and do likewise.
