Credit where due

1st December 2000 at 00:00
I WOULD like to comment on "Super-lecturers push up pass rates" in FE Focus 17 November.

Last year I taught on the GCSE maths course at Derby Tertiary College, Wilmorton. Much of the work was carried out by hourly-paid lecturers at he lowest end of the pay scale. There was no input from any of the learning directors.

A more appropriate heading might have been "Pass rates are inversely proportional to pay rates".
