News and Support from The NASUWT
Commenting on the changes to the Staffing Regulations to allow unqualified people to teach announced today by the Department for Education, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union, said:
“Until today parents were able to send their children to school safe in the knowledge that they were entitled to be taught by a qualified teacher.
“This is no longer the case.
“Another entitlement of children and young people bites the dust at the hands of this Secretary of State.”
North Beds NASUWT asks Mr Gove, “What self-respecting head would choose to put an unqualified teacher in front of his classes?”
Well, maybe one that doesn’t understand what is vital for the good of his pupils. Or one that agrees with your ideological crusade against teachers, unions and parents, who don’t happen to agree with you.
Or one like you who doesn’t have the faintest clue about education.
