Ted Wragg's Last Word column must be the highlight of the week for many teachers with its brilliant, humorous, incisive wit.
I hope he is right about the demise of the macho style of management in schools and elsewhere (TES, November 3). In my experience this style is still alive and well but Ted gies me the hope that it is in terminal decline.
Sadly, I think parents are attracted to schools where macho management pervades. However, in all sorts of subtle ways our "customers" - the pupils - get a poorer service as a result.
