WHY MICHAEL GOVE IS A TWAT
- by a disgruntled teenager
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 reasons he’s a twat
1 2 3 4 5 more reasons
1 2 3 you get the drill by now
1 2 3 4 (wow the twatishness count is getting really high now)
and just for fun… (x)
TL;DR?? Don’t have time for all the links??
Here’s a video with a nice summary
(and you really need to listen to this because SERIOUSLY. What a patronising git.)
Graveney School became Graveney academy last year (detaching it from local government responsibility) after a vote held by the chairs of the parent teacher association.
Basically in becoming an academy the school gains more power - deciding salaries etc. It basically enforces a more steep hierarchy amongst the teaching staff (which is wrong for so many reasons but let’s glance over this)
The people that seeked to gain from the move (well, according to letters home - the pupils and staff as we become independent from that mean old IMPORTANT CHECK ON WHAT THE FUCK THE SCHOOL IS DOING, nemesis the local council) were the people in administration in the school. Headteacher(s) etc. and well, the Parent teacher association.
So basically what we’ve got so far is that the PTA are voting on something that would vastly increase the powers of the PTA…
(can you tell where this is going?)
Oh so surprisingly, the vote was unanimous. And so academy status was granted, and so was born the school that no longer gave a shit.
(o and quite interestingly we have a headteacher and a principal - there was an article in the local paper about a “school that wouldn’t be named” in wandsworth where both the headteacher and principal were on 6 figure salaries. That was fun)
In short, Gove has born this era of greed among the very few (super surprisingly Gove visited our school and is in good correspondence with our headteacher /ugh) and for the vast majority alienated a shit ton of great teachers.
