Lighten up a little, will you?
Stop! Enough is enough. I have been an avid reader of TESS for more than 25 years. It has informed my teaching career, kept me up to date with the latest developments and, perhaps most importantly, made me smile.
Alas, the joy has gone. We all know these are difficult times in education, and I am certainly no apologist for the government. But please can you find something uplifting to write about? Week after week, it’s recruitment crisis, poor pay, workload, stress, funding, the problems of curriculum reform. Make something up if you have to – don’t worry about integrity, no one else does any more. Just make us smile.
