So now that we know that we are definitely having a Conservative majority, so they can get their policies through easily, let's look at one of the major issues that BJ has put forward - a £30,000 starting salary for NQTs and new teachers. Whilst this is great (I think), teacher recruitment isn't the issue, and large starting salaries aren't the way to fix it. Being completely naive/optimistic, say this does work - what about the rest of us in teaching? Will we get pay rises in line with the new starting salary? I just wanted to know your thoughts!
