Archbishop Cramner reports that Miss Snuffy has had to to down her blog; not only that, she has now been "sent home" by her school.
Why? What was her crime?
She spoke out at the Conservative Conference, repeating her blog themes about how the state education system fails the poorest and most disadvantaged in our society.
Naturally, this has gone down like a cup of cold sick with the Lefty scum who "run" our education system in general, and Snuffy's employers in particular.
This is a great pity.
Having had a few drinks with Katherine on a couple of occasions, I can testify to the fact that she is not only an intelligent and thoroughly nice person—she is also a dedicated and passionate teacher.
If something like this had happened in the private sector, I would urge everyone to boycott the company that she worked for until she was reinstated: unfortunately, people are unable to boycott the state schools to which they are assigned.
Which is just one reason why the free schools—and the choice, competition and, most importantly, improved standards that go with them—cannot come soon enough.
