    Dismiss Notice

Will excessive salaries become a thing of the past if academy trusts have to justify CEOs high pay?

    Oh I can answer that one for you. They do the sum total of fleck all. They posture,pout and window dress. They are full of sound of fury, signifying nothing. And theyre bleeding the taxpayer and the teachers’ pensions service bone dry.

    Think it’s the public accounts committee. (Fireguards: brought to you by Cadbury’s....)

    ...thought so!

    If, however, we try to cheat the tax man out of £100 (not that I would!) then someone would soon be on it.

    The irony that this thread is next to the one about teachers suffering a £10k pay cut since 2003. We have been told that this is all about austerity - and it's hard to argue when the country is up against a huge deficit. But the fact is that there IS money in the system (probably not enough even so) and it is being syphoned away from the frontline by individuals like the CEOs and the shady firms who are contracted to provide academy services who are only interested in reaping as much money as they can - whilst knowing that they are effectively stealing from the nation's children.

    Nepotism within SLT is rampant. They justify their existence by making life impossible for overworked teachers. How can people that suppose to help can destroy others so easily??

    Watch The Apprentice - one became the president of America and the other became a Lord in the UK.

    Show me the job description and person specification for their CEO role and that’ll answer the question. Also, what qualifications do you need to became president of prime minister of any country?

    I can't remember where I heard this but I thought it was rather good.

    Bill Clinton proved you don't need morals to be president.

    George W Bush proved you don't need an IQ to be president.

    Trump proved you don't need a president.

    I have long thought salaries for people at the top are ridiculous! I'm not sure what our CEO does. In two years, I haven't seen them. If I decide to remain in teaching after maternity, I will be seeking a job in a maintained school. I have no desire to ever be part of a MAT again. We're failing children.

    I saw the DFE tweet out a civil service job for education. Overseeing 140 staff and a budget of 108 million pounds. Advising ministers and taking shedloads of accountability. Looked a massive job. Pay was £90k.

    That’s less than CEOs with one school MATs. It’s profits by another name.
