If there's one thing guaranteed to generate endless discussion at the General Teaching Council for Scotland, it's what to do in October when members take to the road to meet the profession. This year it's Glasgow, on October 3.
The trouble is they seldom do meet the profession, since turnout is rather on the, er, thin side. The result is thatGTC members end up having an amiable chat among themselves.
"I'd rather hear other people's views rather than my own because, frankly, I'm scunnered with them," Wolseley Brown, a primary teacher member, told the last council meeting. "I endorse what Wolseley has said," fellow member Dorothy Finlay replied, just a shade ambiguously.
