Ralph Pickles, director of Outwood Grange Academies Trust Board, said his goal was to change the culture at his academies “so that the ones who are admired are the ones who are successful and aren’t the miscreants”.An admirable goal. Who could disagree?
The comment irked Cllr Dianne Hewitt (Ed: yes, Labour, of course...) who said she found the use of the word “miscreant” unacceptable.
She said: “How we use language is important.
“How we value people is important.”*speechless*
