Cast your votes for this year's education heroes and villains

22nd November 2002 at 00:00
FORGET Popstars: The Rivals or even who is the greatest Briton: the competition where your vote really counts is deciding who are this year's TES education heroes and villains. Is Estelle Morris, almost sanctified for her resignation as education secretary, a hero? Or was she a villain, kowtowing to Downing Street and, as she admitted herself, not up to the job?

Where does Chris Woodhead now feature? The newly-styled Professor Woodhead - the title comes from the private University of Buckingham - was once famously voted both hero and villain in a radio competition. And how does Sir William Stubbs, the former chairman of the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority, fare against Mike Tomlinson, the former chief inspector drafted in to sort out of the A-level fiasco? For full list and how to vote go to from Tuesday.
