Double standard

Tes Editorial

Can the hacks and others who foamed at the mouth over teachers who went to Ascot explain why they do not get similarly exercised about corporate hospitality? Why is there no outrage at the corporate boxes at Wimbledon, Glyndebourne and other "working" days for corporate fat cats? This must cost the country and consumers a fortune.

Remember these staff paid for their own tickets. I am sure that they work harder than overpaid fat cats and the hacks at the Sun. More schools should take a leaf out of Westborough's book.
