Do you remember the first time?


We’re not talking sexy fun here – though that did indeed go out the window in tandem for many. No, we’re talking about a hell we all thought we’d left behind in late summer – homeschooling.


Back in those halcyon days of August, as we cheerfully waved our kids back into the classroom, parents – what seemed like every parent – swore blind they’d take a bullet for their kids’ teacher. “Pay them all a million quid a month,” we yelled, as we deposited our offspring and ran in the opposite direction. “Knighthoods for every educator.” In short, we’d tried teaching on for size, and those six-week summer holidays no longer seemed a professional luxury.
