The thousand-plus teachers who turned up at the Tapestry event in Glasgow last Friday (page 6) chose their day well. Michael O'Neill, director of education in North Lanarkshire, pointed out that Graham Donaldson and seven of his colleagues from HMIE were also there.

"It's a good day to be out of school, I would say," he quipped.

"I know where I'd rather be teaching," O'Neill commented.
