Thank goodness for that!

I'm really pleased to see this happening. Teachers hide behind an artificial power distance which inhibits the maturity of the interactions in the school and often leaves people with hang ups about people in authority for many years. This very week I attended an event at my son's school and I'm happy to bet that I wasn't the only person in the audience who felt patronised by people far younger (and less qualified) introducing themselves as "Mr" or "Miss" without any regard to forenames and their audience.
