In response to a recent enquiry by someone who wants to put them up on his Staffroom Wall (Don't! It will only end in tears...), here's a list of them:
Chalk's First Law: "In any meeting, it is not possible to make a suggestion so ridiculous that it will not be taken seriously and earnestly debated"
Chalk's Second Law: "The frequency of 'buzzwords' and jargon in a person's speech is inversely proportional to their general competence"
Chalk's Third Law: "No new idea in teaching has ever worked"
Chalk's Fourth Law: "No situation is ever resolved to the satisfaction of all parties concerned"
Chalk's Fifth Law: "Pay no attention to what 'Research' has shown or what an 'Academic' has announced. It is invariably nonsense."
Chalk's Sixth Law: "Always judge on appearance. You will never be Politically Correct, but you will also never be wrong."
Chalk's Seventh Law: "The IQ of the teachers at a given school is proportional to the IQ of the pupils at that school."
