131. Start calling teachers by their first names

Educate Together schools and many Gaelscoileanna have a policy where teachers are known by their first name to the pupils. It makes sense. What other profession do we use Mr and Mrs and Ms anymore? I don’t think there are any people in my life. I call my doctor by her first name; I call my dentist by his first name; the priest that I deal with, I also call by his first name. Surely, it’s time to scrap the formality. It doesn’t really achieve anything.
