Professional Wednesday

The day of the week that fills me with dread.
Not the kids (mostly), not the staff, but the PD.
The time of the week when we at Nuova Lazio High sit down and discuss new and better ways of teaching.
To quote John Cleese in Clockwise:
"It's not the despair, I can handle the despair. It's the hope I can't stand"

Maybe it'll be cancelled so we can do our reports?
Which is worse?
Well possibly this title I saw in Scoop.

School Choice Report Equals Bad Choice What does it mean?

and then in the article itself:

"It proposes giving the bottom 20 percent and the top 5 percent of students the choice to become a so-called “client of a learning broker mentor” attached to a specific institution or professional association. "

I have absolutely no idea what they're raving on about.

It must have been written by an educationalist.


  1. We have professional development on a Wednesday as well, it seems I can't escape the pain no matter where I go. Although that said it is not as closely monitored and we have a lot of time to do our own "self directed professional learning" for things that suit our areas, which is not too painful.

  2. Sometimes it passes beyond pain, towards a numb acceptance.
    You are so lucky in your "self directed professional learning".

  3. You were right to be concerned. PD on Wednesday could not have come at a worst time. It was relevant but it was also tedious and overlong and underwrought. You need to step up old-timer and become a DP to let these louts know what we need and do not need!

  4. OLD-TIMER!!!!
    You young whippersnapper.
    Anyway, I tried for the DPs job 3 years ago. Ringo was chosen from a short list of 3.
