Transfer Window

Sometimes you sit around and let the imagination roam across the imaginary. Surprisingly, one of the ideas that often strolls across the table between one pint and the next is that of transfer windows for teachers.

Can you imagine if you coupled education league tables with teacher recruitment? Your board could authorise a transfer budget, which you could use to poach teachers from rival schools. You could have draft picks for teachers from the local academy or institute of education. Schools at the bottom of the league tables could get first pick.

Scouts would roam the classroom corridors and halls of academia for the sake of sniffing out the next master teacher. A scorer could literally put on a master class.

The more I think about it, the more interesting it sounds. But at some point, the drink runs out and we have to go back to reality. Or take a leak elsewhere.
