I had a dream for a moment...;Letter

WHAT a start to the summer holidays! "pound;40,000 wage on offer to all teachers" (TES, July 24).

But it couldn't really be, could it? For the catch, read to the end of the article. It says: "Headteachers would be expected to appraise teachers' work I" Combine this with the news that teachers and lecturers account for one-fifth of calls to the National Workplace Bullying Advice Line (more than any other profession) and that most victims are talented teachers. The bullies are most often heads. Sounds like Catch 22 but I had a dream for a moment ...
