EDUCATION ACTION ZONES. "I think it's a super idea if it means we see more money. But if it just means more talking and more ideas then we can do without it."

Chris Lindup, Merrywood school, Bristol


I had to do a probationary year myself and I found it very useful for consolidating aspects of classroom practice, such as maintaining discipline. "

Nicola Peters, Bowland County high school, Lancashire


"The threat locally is greater than any from the Government. We do not even know if grammars will be fighting alone or whether we are being expected to fall en masse."

Dr Martin Haworth, Wallington county grammar school, Surrey "I am not losing any sleep over it, but I am concerned about the future. We do not know what conversations are going on in shadowy corners. We cannot be complacent. "

Elspeth Insch, King Edward V1 school, Handsworth, Birmingham
