Staffroom cynics lap up the news
It's good to know that The TES still has the power to bring hilarity to the staffroom on Fridays. I present the following quotes from last week's edition:
"Non-words like 'zort' and 'koob' will be included alongside real words to ensure children are reading, rather than just memorising" - page 6.
"I want to be realistic, but I want to see everybody leave school with at least a grade C in English and maths" - page 10.
"As a headteacher the most important thing I have to think about is exams" - page 23.
In the days of Ted Wragg you could always rely on The TES back page to provide a few good guffaws. Nowadays most of the biggest laughs come from the inside pages.
Keep up the good work.
