What would you like me to ask Charlie Taylor? #asktaylor
Festival of Education. Who him? Shame on you; he's been christened the Behaviour Tsar by the PR wallahs/ compliant news vendors, and is the DfE's advisor on behaviour management. Man; 'behaviour czar'- I was stuck with 'guru'. That makes him, like...an archduke or something.
This blog is a request, a simple one: what would you like me to ask him? Unlike some special advisers, he's a man of the profession; I like a lot of what he's said, to be honest, and take issue with parts, so I'll do my best to unpick and unpack the thinking behind the man who has the prestigious and prodigious ear of M-Gove.
Leave your questions in the comments below (with a name if possible), or send it to me on Twitter, and I'll line up the best ones.
PS I will be blogging and live tweeting the CRAP out of this year's festival. Possibly even during my sessions.
PPS While 'Have you ever gone full pelt with a tranny?' is indeed an excellent question, it regrettably will not make the cut, for reasons of time.

Festival of Education. Book NOW, earthlings. I'm also doing a 'workshop' on behaviour management and education in general there. What more could you ask for? Come along and say hello.
