the one they drove out

I have posted before about Moorlands Primary School in west Reading, a school I do not know and have never visited, and that was why I posted about it.  All I knew was stories in the local media that the head teacher was not liked, not wanted by the parents, most of which came from anonymous briefings to the Reading Evening Post, which of course was happy to copy them out.  The inevitable happened and the teacher was driven out, apparently she is now on long-term sick leave, so there is a good use of human resources.  Not.  But we learn today from His Master's Voice that a part-time executive head has now been appointed.  So that's all right then.  And there is a statement from the chair of the school's governing body.  Malcolm Powers.  I believe it is he.  Regional Director of the Labour Party, South-East.

Well done Malc.  Get rid of the girlies, eh?

ummm... sounds like there was a plan there all along. How did Malc get on the board so quickly and become chair?. In July, the name of the chair of governors was a Mr Brant according to the local rag. the Powers of Powers hey! Sounds like others are running the joint right under the noses of the local coalition. Sorry can't help it Jane, the word "stitch up" keeps coming to mind.
