True - we get about 6 weeks.
(Teachers actually get about half the holidays of the pupils, as we do curriculum planning, assessment and general preparation etc for the rest).

I'm going to see how it pans out during the next couple of months and then - talking of holidays - I might just take a nice lifelong vacation from the teaching/social care/mental health/surrogate parenting.

Goodness knows, I've had piss easy admin jobs before that pay 9/10ths of a teacher's wage. They're looking very enticing now - and not least because I'm 41 years old and teaching, to be absolutely honest, is a data-driven, micro-managed mug's game for people in their 20s and 30s.

TL:DR, bollocks to teaching other people's violent brats.
i was joking really.
as a parent i respect teachers and the job they do. my sons education relied on a two way respect between him and the teachers, if they dont respect you, they're never going to listen and learn fully. if parents domt instill respect in to their children they cant complain when their kids fail every exam.

Capital letters and punctuation. That's what's missing.

There is a difference even though they're tuned the same. Gear4music do one (which looks nice actually) which is marketed as a baritone guitar/bass vi hybrid. Strings are 14-68, whereas on my revelation I have 24-84, which is quite a big difference obviously, skewing it more to the 'bass' end of things.
