It's a domestic

It's official. Ann Hill has revealed, exclusively to The TES Scotland, of course, that when she quit the Scottish School Board Association it was not of her own making.

It was a decision taken "by what I might refer to as a clique and by one man in particular".

Could this be the revelation we have all been waiting for - the outers outed?

Alas, she added: "Of course, I am referring to my four children and my husband David."

With possibly one eye on past travails and another on a hope she may spend more time in her garden, Hill commented: "It will be a relief to work for a committee of one and, just like the first six years of working with SSBA, I don't expect to get paid for it."
