The Chief Inspector of Schools in England and Wales, Sir Michael Wilshaw, has said that maths teacher Jeremy Forrest is exactly the type of best-in-class teacher he was referring to when he made his recent controversial comments on rewarding hard work and going the extra mile.
'He’s hard working and most definitely not out of the gate at 3pm. In fact, he was on a ferry at 7am, and in my book that shows commitment,' said Wilshaw.
Teacher Maggie Jones said: ‘I’ve just spent the weekend preparing an inspirational lesson plan and marking coursework for my GCSE students, but Forrest has set the bar too high. I feel inadequate and useless. I’ve decided to cancel my holiday to Rhyl because on my performance related pay it’s come down to a choice of a wet week in Wales or a meal on the table.’
