    O FFS... they behave worse than the kids... and to think they think they're the only professionals in schools...

    How about "3 technicians are known as worth 12 teachers"...

    Indeed. So what is the collective noun for a group of teachers anyway?

    What they don't realise is that we can block their access to that site which scuppers their efforts in locating work during work time

    Its no wonder we're not highly regarded when they post complete rubbish consisting of grammital errors does make you laugh.

    Awww it’s nice to see the condescending arrogant attitude in writing.

    How about "3 or more technicians found together are known as worth the salary of one teacher"


    Sorry bad day :-)




    @ localzuk: Get in there :-)

    I would say 'pocosin' but the reference is far to obscure for the average teacher to figure out (although some people here might work it out) and it would be a waste of a post on the TES forums.

    Hmmm...

    1. An overpaid of teachers?
    2. A mess of teachers?
    3. An annoyance of teachers?
    4. A farce of teachers?

    A 'Strike'?
    A 'Stumped'?
    A 'Fantastic employment package but I'll complain about it anyway even though I have no other experiance to compare it against'?

    I shall stop now. An interrupted night sleep makes me grumpy.

    This?

    <botany> A bog that has formed in a shallow, undrained depression, the surrounding land being somewhat elevated, the vegetation predominantly evergreen shrubs or small trees. Pocosins vary greatly in size.

    I like the last part
