Teachers who’d be one of the gang – they still don’t get it

He’s in Sixth Form now and starting to see those who teach him for what they are.

The jokers who try to be so cute, they just become irritating.

The subtle bullies who harbour grudges just as fervently as any 14-year-old, apparently trained in every facet of child protection save for the blatantly obvious: that bad youngsters who’ve changed deserve some carrot to go with the stick.

Then there are the would-be cool cats, who think their disorganisation points to the child within instead of just an utter lack of professionalism.

This comes completely unprompted from his lips: “It’s the teachers who expect discipline but are fair with it: they’re the ones who get the best out of me.”

We might have to talk about ‘Year 12’  rather than ‘Sixth Form’ these days but it’s good to know that the important details remain timeless and imperishable.

Beware, as always, of the school teacher who would be ‘your mate’.
