Teacher politics

Lobbydog just spotted Katharine Birbalsingh, the teacher who lost her job after speaking at Tory conference, wandering into a meeting room at Portcullis House.

I saw her speak in Birmingham and it had to be said she talked a lot of sense, if a little too brutally for the tastes of her peers.

Now that she has some public status, and having lost her job standing by her principles, I wonder if the Tories will bring her in as some sort of teaching advisor/champion.

It’s the kind of thing Cameron would do. I just hope she knows what she’s getting herself into.

She’s already been on the sharp end of what happens when a person gets too involved in politics. Getting yet closer to the Tories now, and becoming actively and publicly involved, may spell the end of her teaching career.

Being pro-Labour did sod all for her career. The teaching profession has benn prostituted for many years by its unpleasant relationship with their socialist pimps.
