This is written in response to @OldAndrewUK’s polemical apology for bad mathematics at Michaela Community School entitled “The Truth About Calculating Angle Questions“, which itself was written in response to me.

Couldn’t the home visits just be the salary of a part-time attendance officer of sorts? Would explain the costs staying the same as numbers increased if it’s being spent on a person!
