Virtually foolproof solutions;Letter

I NOTE with interest three articles on consecutive pages of The TES of December 10, one on stress, one on governor shortages, and the other on hologram teachers. Clearly the inference one gains from such close juxtaposition is that the solution to the first two problems can be provided by the third article's subject!

For example, virtual co-opted governors can be engaged to join a school's finance committee to manage the virtual budget. Or virtual supply teachers (who can teach virtually anything) can take over classes during staff absences, allowing teachers the unusual luxury of actually recovering from illness before they return to the classroom.
