The Daily Telegraph (p10) carries a letter from Terry Waite, the former Beirut hostage, that was originally published in the 'Nursing Standard'. In it, he complains that teachers have been given the impression that they are not really important, even though it is in society's interest to cherish them, along with nurses. He goes on to say that it may not have been deliberate policy to undermine them but the result has been damaging.

He is quoted: 'It's all very well and sometimes necessary to cut costs. But it seems totally crazy that a wasteful administrative system has been created which increases paperwork and frustrates professionals.'
