Secondary school head says he’s been told to manage future infections ‘in school’
A popular school principal has stated publicly that the Department for Education (DfE) not to bother reporting coronavirus infections – and to simply ‘manage [them] in schools.
Will Teece, who made a ‘huge impact’ at his previous school in Lincolnshire, according to local press, before moving in the summer to his new school in Leicestershire, tweeted details of his conversation with the DfE:
Mr Teece is one of many teachers and school staff being told to keep quiet about the situation in their school and manage it themselves, as the Tories continue to try to mask the consequences of their determination not to re-close schools.
That determination to keep open the engine room of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic makes a sham – and a scam – of the Tories token attempts to look like they are trying to suppress the spread of the virus.
