blame the teachers - those commie bastards!

A busy day in education journalism today - although, some of this scribble is not worth the paper it's printed on ... (thanks Mr Bantick, you now join your teacher bashing colleagues, Andrew Bolt and Dr Connelly, at the top of the "self-professed expert list" - those who leave teaching, but won't leave teachers alone). You should all be ashamed of yourselves for

The muse is standing outside the classroom (Christopher Bantick)

Thank goodness for some clear sighted and measured writing that attempts to see teaching for the intensely complex and political game it has always been. We need more people writing like Chris Wheat and less spouting bulldust like Chis Bantick.

It is no coincidence that we are in an election year and the battlelines are being vividly drawn along education grounds. My fear is that Mark Latham will be drawn into John Howard's game and loose sight of the real issues and the button pushing he seems to be attempting.

Ah, you've gotta lauf ...

What if Melbourne Grammer went west? (Chris Wheat)
