Hi there, I hope you're enjoying the summer holidays and having better weather than we are in Scotland. 1 day sunshine, 6 days rain, rain, rain! You'd think we'd all be used to it by now...
There's been much debate raging over the internet this last week following reports that a teacher from Australia lost her voice trying to control a classroom of special needs children and is now suing the government for damages. Of course none of us were there and only the people who were present will ever really know what happened, but it seems to me that no-one wins in any situation like this. Least of all the children.
I'd love to know what your views are on this hot topic.
Please also let me know if there's anything specific you'd like me to focus any future articles on.
Here's the link to the latest article from the Special Education site at BellaOnline.com.
