Fictional teachers are so unreal
I had hopes of Paul Francis's Love and Chalkdust (Friday magazine,July 21), which is at least written by an ex-teacher. The pupils in the book are livelier and wittier than any I've met, and some of the teachers are recognisable human beings, but the management are a varied bunch of idiots.
Is it too much to hope for a serious, positive public representation of our profession?
