Magical Masters

New teachers to follow masters programme | Special Reports | "Teachers in the first five years of their careers will be expected to take the new masters in teaching and learning qualification, the schools secretary announced today."

Good job holding a piece of paper will magically make every teacher a better teacher, huh? Good job teachers have lots of spare time to do this. Good job they're not already under pressure. Good job that achieving meaningless statistics like 'all teachers have got Masters' has been demonstrated to improve the experience of students within the education system. Good job it's been shown that no-one learned anything in thousands of years of evolution since 100% of teachers didn't have Masters degrees...


Why is learning not considered learning unless there's something with a fancy stamp on it being handed out??

  1. This piece of paper - will it mean accreditation? Will it recognise how good someone might be? I don't see how you might question it!
