FOR anyone who missed the brilliant Chris McGovern firing on all cylinders on Julia Hartley-Brewer’s TalkRADIO show on Monday morning, the link is below.
He is rightly scathing of the actions of the National Education Union – the main teachers’ union – that have led to the poorest children suffering most from their determination to keep schools closed. As he has been in his recent posts on TCW, which you can read here and here.
As one listener to the programme wrote to Chris: ‘I really fear for the teaching profession with the new National Education Union. With the two biggest unions having amalgamated, one sees the Left-wing influence spanning over more teachers. It’s not that teachers themselves are tremendous Lefties, but the heads of all unions do tend to be that way inclined.’
And, of course, we fear for the swathes of left-behind children too. The teachers’ union needed to be called out publicly. Chris did. I am sure listeners were cheering Chris on from their beds and their kitchen tables!
