* We all know of NASUWT leader Chris Keates' long vendetta against governors. What we don't know is why she has taken against us.

We keep the best interests of the pupils at heart; we try to do a sometimes impossible job - and yes, we're not perfect so occasionally we fail. Now she wants to send us to jail (TES, August 4). Will hanging and flogging be next, I wonder?
