In this episode, I am talking about what I have termed a disingenuous system.
I talk about the fact that our school system is a system that knows deep down that the ills of society cannot be managed by schools and their leaders. I talk about the fact that it is a system that knows that modern British life is overwhelming for us all. I also talk about the fact that it is a system that knows that the stakes are too high for mere mortals and that that there is no pipeline to fill the posts being left in droves or those being fired for not meeting its standards.
I question the fact that it is a system that insists on celebrating the strong and venerating 'those that can' while looking on at those that flounder and ‘fail' like mortals like they are the problem.
