Yes, my brother also works ion an inner-city school.

When the sister started in teaching I remember asking her whether she would like to work at Mallory Towers (old idyllic fictional school from Enid Blyton books) or the sort of c***-hole the brother worked in. She said "Mallory Towers, every time!"

After doing a training period at a posh school and one at her present one (trainee teachers in the UK do on the job training at two schools, usually selected for contrast), she did a 180 and said she preferred the one where she was making a real difference, so that's where she went.

Or as the brother puts it: "I can't imagine the complete and utter tedium of working at a school where there aren't serious problems to be solved."

Hats off to both of them, it's a tough job and I certainly couldn't do it.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
