    When did they manage before, or is this more rubbish pulled from your rear. You just make up stuff to go along.

    If having large class sizes doesnr affect teaching why is it Private Schools keep smaller class sizss around 20 per pupil?

    List these state schools, then list the percentage on over 6 figures then contrast it Acadsmies.

    You live in a warped world.

    The RWR on here are so bitter and morally bankrupt they blame the schools for the cuts, dismiss private Academies siphoning off money because in their world those suffering are lefties.

    You sound very Marxist with that approach because he highlighted like you have the conundrum at the heart capitalism.
    Workers vs owners of capital.

    So you are against companies from profiting? You sound very socialist. Or is it you object when its exploiting cheap labour but then as a RW that means regulations which you are against - what is it again, yeah Free Markets.

    So the NHS is an example of organisation exploiting low cost labour? In the same breath RW on here moan about highly paid NHS staff. You lot tie yourselves up in knots.

    What is your industry?

    So you dont like legal competition? I thought the correct response should be find a new job, thats free market capitalism. So why dont you change Industry / job?

    Finally the RWR kids argument another circular RW argument. RW want more uk born people to work, so uk born parents need to have kids. But they cant afford to have kids witjout Gov help. But then Gov help is welfare which RW abhore. So now we need people to replace retiring workers, bring in new skills but we dont have enough uk born people so what do we do? We bring in foreigners but wait on RW hate them the most.

    RW government in eastern Europe like Hungary have addressed this problem by offering more free childcare and state support for increasing the birth rate.

    A RW is the easiest con.

    My students are one to one and are always accompanied by their tutor. Just recently I have been getting students that are two to one - two tutors, one student! My maximum class size is two so there are often twice as many tutors on the premises than there are students! There seems to be no shortage of funding for that category of student.

    When I was at school, back in the 70's classes were well over 25, possibly closer to 30. The thing is, when does it come unmanageable for a teacher, 28,29? because there is not a lot of difference between 29 & 30. Why not just take away the extra children and make another class ? If you have 29 classes with 30 pupils, each class having to have an assistant, that's 29 extra employees, just take one pupil from each class to make another class of 29, get rid of the assistants and get 1 more teacher, or do you think they will struggle with 29, and if so, how many is manageable, 15,20, 5 ?

    I am not concerned about percentages, I just stated the FACT that state school heads are on 6 figure salaries, as for a list, well I doub't that without a freedom of information request that one will be available, but numerous articles state the fact.
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/educati...ead-teachers-earning-six-figure-salaries.html
    https://www.teachingtimes.com/articles/heads-salaries.htm
    Theses are old figures, so more will be over £100k

    No, a real world.

    Genuine question here, how many kids were in your classes at school, and would you, or any of your peers have disrespected the teacher in any way ?

    I think our class size was 28. In my day, if I or any of my peers had disrespected a teacher, I'm pretty sure we would have had our ****ing heads knocked off of our shoulders if not by the teacher, certainly by our parents.

    Your analysis forgets that mainstream schools now routinely take pupils with learning, physical and behavourial difficulties. But like all things with austerity they dont get the extra funding.

    Also teachers are seen as the route to give children education on such things as LGBT, terrorism etc etc.

    They are also seen as a source of cheap replacement labour for minor school maintenance/cleaning jobs.

    So given that you said, and I quote: "When I close up, they go home and NOBODY can make me keep students past my closing time."

    If the people taking them home are late, you still kick them out if it is after your 'closing time'?

    Or do you keep them there until the people picking them up arrive?

    Edit: just seen your later post...

    So nothing like school at all, as you previously claimed :rolleyes:

    As well as the fact that you are talking about a one or two students, not hundreds or thousands!
