Scottish teachers will not be blackmailed by London
It has been almost 8 months since London set its war dogs, hell hounds and
spin doctors lose on the education system. They have set out to keep
teachers pay low, hours longs and burden them with extra unpaid work. They
(London) have tried to foist half-baked exams on us. They have NOT listened to
the teachers and now they'll pay the price along with Scotlands school children
Scottish parents need to matters into their own hands, demand the extra cash that
Scottish schools need and insist that London keeps its meddling
, lying tongue OUT of Scottish internal affairs.
The Scottish school system isn't perfect, but the stupid and backward thinking
ideas the USA delegates brought to the millennium education forum are a sad joke.
US education is a pitiful mess, standards are lower than many of Scotlands
Make sure that as parents YOU tell your MP/MSP what YOU want. London has no business
