Am I the only one who is opposed to this campaign? I certainly seem to be the only one replying to the news articles to remind everyone that there are a large number of older well qualified teachers out there who schools are refusing to employ simply because they have earned the right to be at or near the top of the pay scale. And, even worse, many of those still in school are being hounded out of the classroom on trumped up capability charges. Schools should only be allowed to consider overseas teachers after they have exhausted the supply of those in the UK. They most certainly should not be allowed to displace good teachers with cheap foreign labour. Supporting let them teach at the moment really is like turkeys voting for Christmas. Why have so many good teachers been consigned to the scrapheap, and forgotten by MPs and TES?
