"Teachers forced to work for bad heads" would have been a more appropriate TES headline for the front-page story on August 31.
I am an MBA-qualified business practitioner who, after 30 years in international industry and for altruistic reasons, quit my job to teach the next generation of managers. My recent experience is that, both during and since my PGCE placement, I have encountered headteachers and heads of college departments who possess very poor ability in people management, impoverished organisational skills and little vision.
It's time for some "heads" to go back to school if they wish to recruit and retain the best performers.
