Teacher is sick of attacks

I am a regular reader of this newspaper and always look forward to the letters page.

However, as a teacher I am getting sick to the back teeth of Richard West and his vitriolic and ill-informed attacks on teachers.

Just for the record, teachers had nothing to do with the decision to shut schools on December 8, just as we have no say in closures for any other reason.

I work very hard in a difficult job and find this continuous teacher bashing totally unacceptable.

I don’t know what has led to Mr West’s bad feeling, but his letters are nothing short of offensive bullying. I know everyone has a right to express their opinions and views, but surely by now everyone who reads TheSouthern is aware of Mr West’s opinions – must we keep being subjected to them?
