Ruston Hornsby How many mudcatters are teachers? (119* d) RE: How many mudcatters are teachers? 06 Jun 06


What I want to know is WHY do there seem to be so many teachers on the folk and traditional dance scene? What is it that attracts teachers to folk or vice versa? I'm in a morris team and about a third of them teach, and, as none of them have done anything else - i.e. they've been in the education system since they were 5 - they seem to have varying degrees of difficulty understanding about life outside of their world. This is particularly noticeable when discussing holidays - they think we all have half terms and summer holidays like they do!

Should you think I'm having an unfair pot at teachers, my late father taught and I can remember him sat at home marking work late into the evening and recall what the pressures of the job took out of him. Mind you, he liked Trad Jazz.....
