Will the real Mr MacIver please stand up

"Should we not be looking at countries like Finland, which is moving towards a situation where all teachers do not have just one degree but also a masters degree?" Mr MacIver asked (TESS, April 28, 2006).

"Mr MacIver went so far as to suggest that the university route to becoming a chartered teacher might be dropped" (TESS, October 6, 2006).

The same Mr MacIver?
