Since the Olympics is a national even so lets have some national input - instead of using serving soldiers who are busy enough, simply conscript all teachers for the period of the games - let them give up part of heir nice long summer break for the good of the nation...

After all it can't be that hard to train them up, given that G4S were recruiting all and sundry to do the job!

Grow up. Look upon covering G4S as early resettlement.

You don't see many ex teachers as Security mongs, you see planty of ex Squaddies.

No less daft an idea than what they're actually doing.

Very well thought out, amazing plan...

Unfortunately quite a few friends who are teachers have already volunteered to do other stuff at the Olympics. Mrs1GM's best friend is a tennis nut and will be spending her summer hols at Wimbledon and she is in heaven. Other we know who teach sports are very heavily involved. Not such a stupid idea but if they were going to be involved they would be already.

Ah! Massive Wah alert just gone off?

I do love how everybody whinges about teachers holidays (during which, most of them spend a lot of time working bloody hard planning and marking), but are quite happy to use them as a free daycare service for their devil spawn as soon as school is back in session.

Also, the school year isn't even finished yet. Goon.

Eh aye I don't begrudge the lengthy holiday period teachers enjoy just because I chose a different career path that gets me potentially spammed for treats like Op. Olympics but I doubt many of them graft away creating lesson plans etc for the new term :)

Superb! Just sent our lass a text (she's a Teaching Assistant) to wind the teachers up.
"On the news this morning, teachers to be called up to cover security at the olympics during the school holiday."

If my kids' work hasn't been marked by the end of a school year I would really like to know why - not much point in it being returned in September when they are into a new year or even new school.

The only marking likely to be done is exam marking where teachers are earning extra money.

Since when has meeting your legal obligation to send your kids to a school (you have helped pay for) been classed as using teachers as a free daycare facility?

Some teachers need to get over their over-blown sense of superiority and get off their self-righteous high horses.

That said, the OP's suggestion is clearly barking, what use is a security guard who won't start work until 9 o'clock and has to knock off by 10 to 4?

My red bold - And a lot of Squaddies too. You are not God's gift to creation and you do not have a superior work ethic to every civvie. In fact you would struggle to do most most civvy jobs, just as theyd struggle to do yours.

My blue bold - More use than one that can't speak English and doesn't show at all

Timeto stop slagging teachers off. We all make our own career choices. Loooking back maybe choosing to be outnumbered as a male Primary School teacher, just about guaranteed to get a Headship and surrounded by aged 25 to 45 skirt for 39 weeks a year would have been a good one.

That said as the son of a Comprehensive Deputy Head Teacher I can assure you that they do not spend their holidays doing lesson plans and my dad was always home before Blue Peter started too.

If I was a teacher I'd be costing the school a fortune replacing shelving in the stationary cupboard.
God, I had a permanent hard on over some of my teachers and still wank my self red raw thinking about them to this day.

Being a teacher must be a lot better than running round a hot sweaty kitchen/field/shit, blood and puke covered hospital/chav mong infested sink estate.....especially with totty on tap.....

Sod it, I might go whole hog and train to be a male dancer, even more and much hotter totty and zero competition as all the other blokes are usually gay! (dancers are as mad as a box of snakes though)

I have four in the family and as much as I like giving 'those that cant do' as much stick as possible they do work a hell of a lot during the summer holidays both in the school and at home. It's very VERY flexible work though and sticking fancy paper to walls and planning lessons isn't exactly preparing an anti armour ambush so I'll not cry for them.

Nobody here says they are God's gift so calm down before you have a coronary. If you don't like soldier's opinions then why are you on this website? Do one.

Are you trying to come on to me? My point was that there is a general train of thought on a soldiers website that follows the general line that soldier-good, everyone else-bad. Why are you surprised by that?
