Parent power

There's a right stushie going on in middle class Glasgow concerning recent events at Hutchesons' Grammar School:
The governors at one of Scotland's leading private schools have been accused of gross mismanagement by disgruntled parents.

Some have been angered by the rapid departure of the deputy rector at Glasgow's Hutchesons' Grammar School, which fuelled claims he had been put in an untenable position because of a difficult relationship with the rector.

I don't know whether the "traditionalist" Sandy Strang was forced out or not but there is little doubt that the wishes of the fee-paying parents are more likely to be attended to at Hutchie's than in any state school.
