State schools

This was a quick education-themed cartoon that I posted yesterday evening. I say quick, because I only spent a bit over an hour from pencil-on-paper to putting it on Twitter.

This was a quick education-themed cartoon that I posted yesterday evening. I say quick, because I only spent a bit over an hour from pencil-on-paper to putting it on Twitter. Those who know how I work will recognise that this is unusual. It is, at the time of writing, the third second most popular cartoon I’ve ever done (based on Facebook stats). I didn’t expect that. Thanks to a friend on Facebook who (unwittingly) gave me the idea.

There’s not much more about the cartoon itself that needs saying. It is a subject I feel strongly about. But I’m pleased it has gone down well, because I’d like to do more drawing like this – political and/or with a point.

Meanwhile my January / February work continues. I have just finished five extra cartoons for this week’s Church Times, which is Week 2 of the ‘C of E health check’ series that I mentioned the other day, along with my usual one. This evening and tomorrow I will be beginning to look through the texts of the features for Week 3.

  1. Thank you for this one, which I had seen on FB and Twitter. It’s kept me grinning all through an interesting day with some of my fabulous but challenging students,.. Mr Gove would not last a day in their company…

  2. I absolutely LOVE this. THANK YOU for being on the teachers’ side by pointing out just one of the many idiocies in Education at the moment (I’ll leave you to determine for yourself whether I am refering to policy or politician there)!

  3. Love it. Not sure they will be so keen on the extra Latin classes, so essential to enable State school pupils to get ahead in the modern world!

  4. Huzzah, Dave finds the pointy end of his pencil!

    The vast middle class has found its voice.

    Go Go Go!
