Channel your TV enthusiasm
There is, of course, nothing wrong with entertaining teachers at the same time as helping them further their careers, which the channel also aims to do. God knows, teachers need entertaining as well as to be entertaining on occasion. But everything will hinge on the quality of the programmes if teachers are expected to tune in. That will determine whether they are inspired enough to make time to switch on. Who knows, perhaps in the future ministers may not be worrying about whether children are watching too much television, but about whether teachers are watching enough.
