From Twitter

Our feature on bullying in the staffroom ("Pecking order", 30 August) clearly struck a chord with many readers and sparked a heated debate on Twitter. Some were happy that the subject was being discussed, others called for better reporting and a few felt that new teachers should show more backbone.

Fab article - perhaps a rethink on reporting and supporting is required to let teachers focus on what they're good at.


Maybe teachers should get some life experience before they role (sic) straight out of uni into a job #pathetic


Having life experience does not make you automatically a good teacher or professional.


I find that some teachers I work with who have come from a "business" background don't have much empathy.
