I couldn’t believe it

AS a retired teacher with 42 years’ experience in schools in both Scotland and England, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read a headline in a national newspaper, stating “Bad teachers should be paid less”.

I wonder if the said minister realises that the biggest headache all education departments have in Britain is finding enough teachers to recruit? it’s an almost impossible job.

So what has this brainless minister done now? I shudder to think.

I think the children of Britain deserve better than those inane comments by someone who hasn’t a clue about the problems in education.
