Role, status and esteem of teachers

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by Bronco, Feb 5, 2011.

  1. Does anyone have any examples of pronouncements by politicians or civils servants in letters, official documents or statements on this topic? I tried to give examples of this but got it posted on the Scotland forum by mistake
    Example:- "We will be doing everything possible to increase the esteem and prestige of the teaching profession." This was in the answer given by Michael Gove in response to a question from Steve McCabe on Nov 15th - "If we recruit too many untrained and unqualified teachers does he fear that he will be presiding over the Department for Dumbing Down?"
