As a teacher, I'm sick and tired of MPs , business leaders etc.- who have never taught in their lives- spouting about education.Too much credence is given to their views and we are expected to change teaching methods and the curriculum to suit their current "fad".It is making me feel increasingly frustrated and angry.

I believe that dyslexia does indeed exist, and have met many young people with dyslexia who have had to work very very hard to achieve their full potential.The problem has been overdiagnosis. A great number of parents are too quick to label their child "dyslexic" when they are in fact underachieving for other reasons.I don't even want to get started on that one!(They can usually find some organisation to give them the diagnosis they want - and usually for a fee.) I have known parents demand that their child be given a label, as if that will make everything better.It is a greatly overused word.

Unfortunately this means that schools are trying to spread their resources too thin, and the genuinely dyslexic children may find they do not get all the help they need.This idiot is doing those children a great disservice and he should be made to apologise to them .

Sorry to sound so bitter and twisted, but it's about time someone asked a few teachers what they think.

People who work in the field of educational have to be qualified. Those who work with dyslexics and dyslexia similarly. In other words, they need to become knowledgable and to some degree 'expert' to be able to practise. I wonder what qualifications Graham Stringer has had to achieve to become an MP?

Being able to talk from various places - and not always from his mouth!
