December 01, 2010 1:11 PM

"People may complain about spelling and grammar but these days we sit at a computer which works out much of that for you. Are those skills really as important as they used to be?"

A clear example of the need to free schools from the stranglehold of the deluded unions and the bureaucracies they represent, if more were needed.The quality of teacher training in Scotland was criticised yesterday.
