Women in the boardroom

2nd August 2013 at 01:00

During a long and undistinguished teaching career, it never occured to me that I might now be deemed to be in the forefront of educational change ("A woman's place is in the boardroom", 19 July).

In my lessons, girls tended to be just as disruptive as boys. Admittedly, they did not need too much encouragement from me.
