Spare The Rod, Spoil The Teacher

As a hater of all forms of government, I'd normally have sympathy with a group of professionals forced to deal with prescriptive diktats from distant civil servants, but there's two things stopping me where teachers are concerned.

Firstly, I was educated during the supposed Golden Age of the 1980s, back before the national curriculum and SATS, when teachers were at liberty to, like, do some stuff about... y'know, other stuff. Or something. Secondly, I have noticed that no matter how grindingly grinding the treadmill gets, there's always time for garbage like this or this.
