Damian Hinds admitted this week that teachers’ workload is at the top of his to-do list of issues to tackle in education and hopes to carry on the work that he has started under a new prime minister. He also wants to improve the recruitment and retention of teachers: ‘Damian Hinds has said he wants to continue as education secretary under a new prime minister to finish the job of reducing teachers' workload and improving recruitment and retention in the profession The education secretary told Tes the government also needed to do more to close the attainment gap and to prepare pupils for post-Brexit Britain.’ https://www.tes.com/news/hinds-i-want-stay-and-finish-job-under-new-pm Would you be happy for Damian Hinds to stay in the job as education secretary or do you think the DfE needs a new person at the helm? What do you think of his record so far? Do you think enough is being done to tackle the problem of excessive workload? Are you convinced that councils and multi-academy trusts will take notice of Hinds' request to reduce the burden of data collection on school staff? Will the problems of workload, recruitment and retention ever be solved?
