Dear Leader

28th July 2006 at 01:00
I note proposals to abolish the title "head" and replace it with principal, with a view to attracting business leaders who are not qualified as teachers to run schools. This simply does not go far enough. In future heads should be called the Dear Leader, paving the way for Mr Blair to engage his passion for education when he steps down as PM.
