AS a retired teacher it was with an increasing sense of concern that I read the attacks on the National Union of Teachers for taking the action it did to bring Education Secretary David Blunkett to book.

My cause for concern is the lack of morality underpinning thir arguments. They are clearly saying "you are welcome to break the law provided that you pay me some money". Is it any wonder that so many youngsters are confused about their own standards?
