Naughty words were beneath your teacher

4th March 2011 at 00:00

Regarding Ms Anne Thrope's article of 18 February ("Experts top my wankometer", TES Magazine), is this the sort of language that we want used in The TES? With all the wonderfully expressive words that we can use in the English language, I was disappointed in those chosen for the title and in the final paragraph by a representative of the teaching profession.
