National Union of Teachers delegates in Brighton have been working dilligently, intellectually, and cooperatively to carve out their planning and priorities for the year to come. Important (real) motions have been passed about continued industrial action, child poverty, the peace process in the Middle East, conditions for older women in teaching, and sixth form funding (among others).
I thought, though, that it might be fun to dream up a few satirical "NUT Motions to Make a Difference," add a bit of well- intentioned satire, and smile.
So, in that spirit, my first "NUT Motion to Make a Difference":
Hot and Cold Water
"Conference instructs the executive to
1. Oppose separate hot/cold taps in washrooms, in which water comes out molten lava hot or ice cold, but never properly warm.
2. Begin transitioning all separate taps to functional, single taps in which hot water can be combined with cold to make warm, like the rest of the developed world."
Any others you can add? Please leave a comment below!
