Under a Labour government teachers would need to take out annual breakdown cover in order to work in English state schools pledged Shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt
Mr. Hunt said the emotional stress and strain put upon teachers by current Education Secretary Michael Gove had reached a tipping point and it was now undermining their ability to teach.
Hunt said breakdown cover for teachers would include ‘home start’ whereby a qualified mechanic would come round to your house get you out of bed, shower you, brush your teeth and then make breakfast.
‘Roadside recovery’ would assist teachers suffering a mental break down on their way into work and a trained assistant could comfort any part-time staff found sobbing outside the school gates.
Teachers unable to continue their journey would be found a supply teacher to take their place.
If the roadside mechanic is unable to get any member of staff up and running again they will be put on the back of a low-loader and either delivered to the nearest A&E or taken back home
Germ of an idea here.
Anybody want to add or run with it?
I'm heading out.
I have an urgent appointment with the shop assistant at Sheppey's Cider Farm near Taunton and I daren't be late.
