Ythanside No credit for A level teachers (25) RE: No credit for A level teachers 18 Aug 07

Bonzo3legs, in one posting you refer to 'this hideous Labour government!!!' and, in another, say that your father retired in 1989 because 'He could see the way things were going!!'.

In 1981, the Tory Minister for Education, Keith Joseph was asked why Thatcher's government had awarded the Police force a substantial (and un-asked for) pay rise while refusing to listen to requests from the NUT for a pay review. His dismissive retort,'We pay for what we value.' is perhaps what allowed your father, and thousands of other teachers, to see precisely the way things were going under the Tories.

BTW, I think that school teachers are, for the most part, doing a grand job.
