I absolutely agree with the letter on Ms Anne Thrope included in your 25 November edition.
I read TESS for professional reasons - I disseminate relevant and interesting news items to staff within Skills Development Scotland to support their work with schools and colleges - and for pleasure.
The only writer I avoid is the very negative Ms Thrope. Her sarcastic, anglocentric tone and general inability to include anything helpful or positive in her articles frustrates me. I hope you will take the letter- writer's advice and replace this weak link with something of value.
