For those contributors who have been following the continued saga of increasing privatisation of schools and the casualisation of the teaching workforce, you might want to contact your MP about this EDM that has just been tabled. Nothing will happen unless you urge your MP to consider this. The figures speak for themselves. Instead of paying the salaries of agency bosses and driving supply teachers' pay down by encouraging hundreds of agencies to compete with one another, there must be be public accountability. http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2015-16/613 The more MPs who sign up to this EDM, the more likely it is to lead to an enquiry. It's your tax money. It's in your interests that it goes into schools and not into private companies.
