WHAT a disaster! How long are teachers (The Yorkshire Post, May 6) to be subjected to the crazy whims of Government ministers?
I write following your report of the resignation of Bramley headteacher Maria Townsend after a 30-year career.
It has long been my belief that every new broom in government feels the need to prove herself or himself with some extravagant clean sweep.
Let those who have already proved themselves through long experience guide the Government and not the other way round.
What this country needs is a generation of children who are both self-confident and self-disciplined, and this will only be achieved when parents and teachers are enabled to work together, something which the constant tsunami of so-called reforms and initiatives does nothing to foster.
Or wait, could this latest loss to the profession be the catalyst needed to unite everyone who cares about our children’s future?
