‘Chancellor blatantly peddling misinformation’ says the NASUWT

Responding to the speech by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, to the Conservative Party Conference, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union, said:

“George Osborne is clearly seeking to deflect attention from the abject failure of his economic policy by blatantly peddling misinformation to the public.

“The Chancellor’s claim that teachers need to defy their union to run an after-school club is quite frankly nonsense.

“The NASUWT action is not about stopping after-school clubs, or any other voluntary activity.

“It is about enabling teachers to get on with the job of focusing on teaching and learning, something this Government is preventing teachers from doing.”
