We all want to see the back of bad teachers

The Campaign for State Education believes that those who educate our children should be educated and professionally trained to the highest possible standard.

That this is far from being the situation in the UK is self-evident, but it is completely naive to suggest that "ruthless" heads can effectively identify and get rid of all the sow's ears and replace them with potential silk purses.
