to think this head has just realised being a head isn't as easy as she thought?

Sadly I suspect this was inevitable. What a massive waste of time and resources.

Love how she's tge one getting tge heat. There are lots of jobs where you don't have to do tge job to be tge boss

Teaching, for example, isn't one of them.

I know the school very very very well. And am I surprised? <tries to arrange face into surprised shape, gives up>

Ditto ClayDavis. What a ridiculous situation. The Headteacher at the school I work in is absolutely fantastic but she works 7 days a week. On school days she is at work from 7am till at least 6.30 and most weeks she has meetings till much later. At the weekend she works several hours a day. We are so lucky to have her, I would not do the job for double the money.

Bring a head is all about directing teaching and learning. She isn't a teacher, she knows fuck all about either.

Bet the sponsors are very pleased.

Is she the one that was on telly when offered the job saying ooh, no I'll be absolutely fine. It's a brill idea.

I'm sure you are right, Loves. But this particular job was never going to be one of them. As much as I think she has been used as a scape goat she is not entirely blameless. She knew as well as anybody else what she was getting herself into and how it was likely to turn out.

Ooooh, Kim who is it? Name names...

September's barely bloody out. That must be the quickest departure ever. Poor love.

I shouldn't laugh...

Why not Something? I am as is everyone else I think. What is it they say about pride coming before a fall?

ClayDavis Wed 09-Oct-13 23:34:39

Education Secretary. She's now overqualified for that position.

BoundandRebound Wed 09-Oct-13 23:36:55

I am speechless

SomethingOnce Thu 10-Oct-13 00:55:49

Because I felt a bit mean for laughing.

Don't worry, I'm over it now grin

No, she's just climbing the ladder for other positions and her brief stint as head will be explained away, as it has been, by the explanation that her intention was to merely set everything up before heading into admin where her probable wacky theories can go into education policy without having to go through the inconvenient stage of actually trying them out in a real classroom setting first. It's nothing new. Me, cynical?

I could have no respect for a head who had not done their time on the coalface. How can they really understand what my job entails if they haven't done it?

I think what is so disturbing is the fact it'll have no impact on her probably stellar career and she'll become head of education policy somewhere or other, and in fact she'll say she was "successful at setting up a free school" rather than acknowledging it was all a bit of a failure really.

I don't think her career should be mothballed, far from it, but these sort of people always come out smelling of roses don't they?
