I agree.Complete and utter disgrace, yet nothing is being done. Those in positions of 'power' are all crowing about world class education and how the new curriculum is fit for the 21st Ct - more like fit for the bin. Supply teachers earning the same as hairdressers? (and I have nothing against hairdressers - but did they study for five years?) This may be the last nail in coffin of my, and many other teacher's careers, and that is what they want. Why employ a teacher for £30k when you can employ cover supvisors on minimum wage? Sure, there is no education taking place, but what the hey. It all looks good on the council balance sheets.
