Speaking of which Why can't teacher training days take part during pupils holidays?
We're told teachers work through these anyway, right?

So essentially she is teaching a load of buffoons who don't want to learn. And wants more money so she can continue to watch them fail because it's pretty difficult to teach people who don't want to learn. Accepted (well, not the bit of giving this clown more money...). But if we got the members of One Direction in to teach them pop songs they'd all be wide eyed and eager. And they need to learn all about the great Scargill.
Gove is well and truly knackered if he thinks he can change education one iota (Greek by the way, probably not something this teacher would want recognised) if this is the cream of British teaching talent.

The gist of the poem is that it is nothing to do with teaching kids about Arthur Scargill - it is the people the government have allowed to come in to either teach, administer local schools or make decisions on educational policy that lack the qualifications and/or experience to do so.

It expresses the sentiment either rightly or wrongly that people who don't really understand the needs of education are making the system harder for teachers to actually work and do their jobs effectively then blaming the teachers for the poor standards that the restrictions are contributing to.

Thanks. So she doesn't want more money or a better pension then? What is she proposing to do to improve the education of our children?

By the way, I would never blame teachers for poor standards. They need to be part of the solution. But all I see is teachers talking about their pay and pensions. Which, at the end of the day, is all this diatribe is about.

In the rant she certainly claimed that her pension was being 'taken away' - imagine how pleased she will be when she learns the truth - despite the benefits being slightly reduced she will still be getting a huge taxpayer subsidy and will still have a pension that is the envy of 95% of private sector workers.

Who knows, she might be happy enough to write a poem about it...

Sounds like she'd be happy as a well paid babysitter, less interest in improving the education of her charges ... but it is all just a bit of fun, so we shouldn't read too much into it.
