Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Stop the search

The Tories believe that the way to tackle discipline in the classroom is for teachers to have the right to search students for knives. I am a teacher - I don't want to search my kids. It would be far more likely to lead to confrontation and I would be far more at risk of being stabbed by attempting it. What if I found a gun? As a teacher, should I be expected to empty the cartridges? I'd rather teach history, as I do currently. This smacks of opportunism, and of Cameron's desire to appeal to the bring back flogging brigade, rather than any real attempt to introduce a workable solution. If The Conservatives were serious they would consult the teaching unions, who defend teachers who have been attacked by students. And they would click on this link.

It's the inequality, stupid

Who should I vote for?
