Oh Carol



Had she lived my dear friend Carol Adams would have been 62 today. We used to chuckle at the soppy words of Neil Sedaka's song as we wondered around Hackney as teenagers. When we met many years later she told me of her plans to upgrade the status of teachers through the creation of the General Teaching Council of which she was the first Chief Executive. Sadly one the first and most destructive acts of our horrendous coalition government was to announce the closure of the GTC.
