    When Musharaff started speaking fluently with the music on and you could see the disbelief in his teacher's face that it had actually worked and he'd actually achieved what none of his speech therapists or support workers had managed in a decade? Yeah, it got emotional...

    How Educating Yorkshire helped me find my voice | Musharaf Asghar | Comment is free | theguardian.com

    I saw suggestions on twitter last night that perhaps Michael Gove should watch Educating Yorkshire......

    Speaking of Gove, how's this for a typically understated Yorkshire opinion: Educating Yorkshire's Mr Mitchell: 'I'm not a massive fan of Michael Gove' | Television & radio | theguardian.com
    "not a massive fan" doesn't quite convey the quantity of bile I regularly see on my Facebook feed for our Pob in Cabinet.

    As for the school, I think the youthfulness of the SLT is a big plus for them, Mr Mitchell clearly realises that somethings will have to be relaxed for that school due to its location and socioeconomic state IE the high number of FSM. The uniform clearly isn't 100% perfect you can see that in all episodes yet I haven't seen too many blazing arguements over it, a few comments but that is it when I think about where I have worked and uniform it shows how other priorities are higher such as getting grades. The style of teaching show by many in the program is also modern and in some ways how my maths teacher taught me GCSE maths well over 10 years ago and how ahead of his time he was and show that not ever child responds with "I'm gonna sue you" for telling them they will fail or to get off there lazy backside and get on with some work.

    Full marks to him and his team it is a good way of working and I am sure there is many bad times for them and students but with that group of staff it will work well for them
