Website winds up teachers’ union

As spotted by the ever observant Irish Eagle, and to follow up our own mention of the site in question, Ratemyteacher is causing a bit of a stir.. It seems that teaching unions are seeking legal advice about the site – “Jim Dorney, General Secretary of the TUI said the site was ‘worthless’, since anybody can log on anonymously and say whatever they like…”.. *ahem*.. while Oisin O’Reilly, vice-president of the Union of Secondary Students, sets out the case for the defence. Interestingly, perhaps, the site appears to be most popular with students in Ireland, where 7 schools have blocked access to the site.
