  2. Mr. Forbes you smile and opine about a subject that you clearly do not understand. Do you really think that the problem is the unions??? Tell me sir have you ever seen Super Nanny??? The problem comes from the home. We teachers do the best we can with whoever arrives. These children are not Tabla Rasa. If too many arrive with the results of poor parenting, how is that the teacher’s or union’s fault?
    Mr Forbes, stick to your day job; and leave education to the stalwarts who actually do the job. As opposed to the cherry pickers who only teach the “nice” children in your ideological fantasy world…
