Such a cheek to make ICT man butt of the joke

28th January 2011 at 00:00

Regarding your article "The mother of invention" in the TES ICT Guide (January 7), I must bring to your attention the stereotypical photograph you used to portray ICT staff in schools.

The article was excellent and offered good, sound advice on making school budgets go that little further. However, was it necessary to show a member of school ICT personnel crouched under a table with his butt showing?

You only have to visit the schools I work for to see smartly dressed ICT staff working professionally.
