And therein is the crux of the problem, when you are in you are in, no accountability whatsoever, any issues its the disgruntled parents issue or the incapable child.

Teachers are inspected every day of the week by parents.

What a stupid comment that is. Do parents then decide the salary increase of the teacher, do parent give the teacher formal coaching conversations or disciplinary if required? Sure school principals cannot even address poor performance levels.

Milltown, you ask for a definition of a poor teacher. It's the same as a poor welder, a poor mechanic etc. Disinterested , no pride in their work, lack of attention to detail, poor communication skills, poor organisational skills. Bottom line = poor results. The difference is the poor welder has repercussions.

Nothing stupid about it. Do you have opinions on teachers who would have taught you or family? Would you have shared those views with others? Teachers are aware that their performances are discussed routinely by parents and are judged accordingly.

And if they are deemed inadequate what are the consequences, genuine question.

Donít know any teacher deemed inadequate. Any teachers I know or have worked with are working to the required standard. The problem we all have  are some disgruntled parents who canít accept that their children are finding it difficult to reach the expected standard for their age despite the best efforts of the teacher and any learning support that are in place. Emphasis on some parents. The vast majority of parents are appreciative of the efforts that are being made for their child. Itís just a few and of course itís everybodyís fault that their child is not reaching the level that they would like them to.

Coalisland thirds have pulled out of Division 3, they've handed walkovers to all remaining opponents. Still down to play Drumquin in the 1st Round of the JFC.

There's a new one, you can only lose a job through gross misconduct, teaching must be one long cushy number until early retirement, then back in subbing to top up the big pension.

Ok so how do you lose your job? And who decides that? If I turn up every day work and go home is that ok?

Utd at sixís and sevenís so whatever system the managers trying to play they havenít a clue how to carry out instructionsÖ Iíve yet to see a decent argument for playing the ball from kick outs inside the rectangle!

It looks daft

Do they though? The poor welder takes up a job welding somewhere elseÖ

Iím not sure what repercussions you are looking? Flogging?  Sack them and then what? Do we have plenty of spare teachers out there?
Yes. It was reported a few years ago that we are training an excess of teachers.

Whatís the drop off rate? As in how many train up and eventually leave?

Youíll have to have excess to cover for sick, retirement, leavers, and so on.

In any job youíll only lose it for gross misconduct.. so define gross misconduct in teaching?

My sister in law blamed the school for her kids not doing well always giving off about them, my daughters went to the same school and it was brilliant, her two kids unfortunately didnít want to be there or do any work, but it was the schools fault!!

I get the feeling disgruntled parents always believe wee Johnny was a good kid

I always thought Ten Haag wouldnít be there long. Maybe gone  at  end o the season , or probably before then . Having said that , there is only so much a  manager can Do.  The performance s are atrocious, the players bar 1 or 2, are pathetic . 

Southgate will be in  after the World Cup.

There was good money on that bet. Did you have a few quid on it?

No  but I might do

The timing is right though . Canít see TH being there long , and Southgate will have taken that lot as far as he  can (hopefully dumped out early in Qatar )....... While i do feel Southgate is overrated , he will get the team set  up well , albeit negative and defensive . But  thatís what has been lacking in  recent seasons , a strong back 4 , a solid Gk and  hardworking players/system .

Those United players couldnít run  out of your road . Lazy arsed  big heads . Weíve seen the results the likes of Brighton get with hardworking players , chasing, closing down  etc.  Thereís a lot of be said for  a team like that
