I just want to take the time out to appreciate this poet. I am not a fan of poetry, not in the slightest however, this…well this is just powerful. Okay, this has no relevence to grammar but she is right. Mr Gove just needs to take a step back and understand the bigger picture. I’m a fourteen year old school girl, who stumbled across this, yet I find peace in everything she says, knowing that someone understands how I feel, and can portray it in such a way that is frankly moving. This woman, deserves so much respect and has truly earnt mine in five minutes.
Great comment – very clear and perceptive. Teachers really have their backs against the wall and deserve our wholehearted support, in their efforts to do a good job for their pupils, in spite of this education-wrecking government.
