Ms Anne Thrope appals yet compels

I find Ms Anne Thrope offensive and insulting. This week's has been the final straw. I do not wish to read the words "fucking" and "shit" on the first page of what is supposed to be a quality publication. Considering that Ms Thrope is an English teacher I would have thought that she had sufficient vocabulary to avoid using such offensive terms.

In addition, as a senior marker for an exam board, I find her comments offensive. In my experience, rogue examiners are weeded out by the team leaders well before results day and these papers are completely remarked. I spend a week every July doing exactly that.
