    BSF Topic

    Sorry but why is the BSF topic buried so deep in edugeek that you seriously have to look for it to find it and it isn't even on a sticky..

    This is a very very serious topic and it is going to affect most of our lives and maybe this site too as if there are no independant ICT Tech's and Managers who will support the site ?

    The Topic should be up front and on its own above technical as that is how serious i think it is..

    There also needs to be a poll

    Edugeek members need to find out how they can survive the BSF rollout and what action they need to take to keep thier jobs secure

    Good plan. This is certainly the most pressing issue that members face.
    any chance to move over existing (search bsf) threads?

    Nope .. today is today ... and when tomorrow becomes today, then today will be yesterday ...

    And we will all be sat round a camp fire singing folk songs and eating knitted tofu sandwiches.

    I'll give *him* a nudge ... but he has been busy recently ...

    Re: BSF Topic

    Hi

    This is the reply I recieved from my MP in regards to the topic posted on the BSF forum.

    I am tempted to ask for him to proceed and see what happens???

    What do you think?? (see below)

    Alex


    Dear Alex Knight,

    Thanks for your message. Yes I have seen John Pugh's EDM and agree with much
    of its thrust. But I have, I'm afraid, a fundamental objection to
    EDM's.....there is NEVER an "early day" so the only function EDMs perform is
    to garner support and waste Parliamentary paper.

    May I therefore suggest whjat could be a more fruitful approach. You
    obviously feel strongly about this issue. I dare say other educationalists
    do. I would be happy to apply for an Adjournment Debate in either
    Westminster Hall or the main Chamber in order that these matters could be
    debated and a Ministerial reply received. There is no guarantee of obtianing
    such a debate, but I have managed to secure five of them in the past year.

    If you would like me try please let me know.

    With best wishes

    Ian Liddell-Grainger

    Re: BSF Topic

    Would it be possible to raise this topic from the bottom of the General Chat lost somewhere in the middle of the forum....... to the prominence it deserves for something of such a serious nature that affects us all.

    Like above Technical ;-)

    Yes it is ok, as I thin it is about time peple became aware that the local authorities are going to potentially waste a lot of money on these so calles 'initiatives'. Public tax money I hasten to add.

    this topic is still in unseen the depts of Edugeek's forum...

    In fact a discussion on this years Xmas Gatherings has more importance than the BSF Steamroller and PfS taking over ICT in schools and making a whole lot of us unemployed...

    Glad the priorities are in order...
