Teachers take money and run

Teachers are on the radio going on about a wonderful new idea: courses teaching children how to deal with bullies and mobbing. They are enthusiastically waxing lyrical about this and it all sounds very fine and valuable and furry, and you’d never dream that what they are really talking about is making the child responsible for its own safety at school whilst eagerly shirking that responsibility themselves. They carry on taking the paycheque though.
