Stop worrying immediately;Letter

27th March 1998 at 00:00
Mike Baker (Another Voice, TES, March 13) was absolutely spot-on in recommending that teachers should "stop worrying and cut some corners".

The only point on which I would take issue with him is his rather laid-back concluding paragraph when he suggests that teachers should take his message with a pinch of salt.

No such thing. They should take his advice seriously and implement it immediately.
