An audience that bit back

19th August 2005 at 01:00
Thank you very much for publishing Julie Greenhough's piece last week. My memory runs back to an event over 16 years ago when secondary heads were gathered for a similar outing.

At the end of two painful days, a senior headteacher (once my boss) asked two questions of the showmen: "when did you last teach?" and "what are you being paid for this?"

Yet it still goes on. Glad to be out of it.
