Not such bullshit

26th June 2009 at 01:00

Us local authority folk have been playing bullshit bingo at meetings held by the Training and Development Agency for Schools for years (Letters, June 19). When you're enmeshed in a TDA-generated cloud of deliverables and toolkits (a sheet of paper with a list of outstandingly banal questions) conflicting information is battering you from all sides, and your personal "will to live" graph is dipping into the negative, bingo has sometimes been the only way to keep sane.
