I forgot to say, if people want to discuss this, please can they do so in another thread, because that will make it easier to count up the votes! Thanks!

3/ it depends on whether they also have investments in property that they gain a rental income from, or are owners of businesses.
i.e. exactly the same way of deciding class as I would apply to any other profession

1 and 4, with the proviso that they aren't doing it as 'a calling' while sitting on a £1m trust fund.

Obviously middle class, class isn't just simple and based on income, it's tied up with a whole host of other factors including social prestige and power, both of which teachers obviously have.

The coppers of the class room. School is capitals greatest dehumanising weapon, to shape the new layer of complient wage slave drones. Schools are just like prisons, but for kids. Their crime? Youth.

Is this supposed to be satire, Jack, or are you really this foolish?

I have also written a book of communist critique of capitalist political economy.
