A Failure?

Recently, the Professional Association of Teachers (PAT) had their annual conference in Buxton. Lix Beattie, a teacher retired after teaching for 37 years, called for the word ‘failure’ to be banned and replaced with the term ‘deferred success.’

Evidently, when the motion came up at the conference, she had but five supporters.

Oh yeah, and the newspapers all over England talking about her.
