Keep up the pressure
See photos and reports of successful stalls that have engaged parents and public.
For more details on the dispute see our Edufacts on workload, pay and pensions.
Our strike in March this year forced the publication of the workload statistics which had been collected more than a year earlier. It also forced the Government to produce guidance for head teachers about the evidence demands they place on teachers and on equalities issues in pay determination. We have written to NUT representatives about how to make the best use of this guidance.
We want to enlist the support of as many parents as possible in the campaign for education. Check here for more information.
A key strand of our campaign to keep up the pressure on the Secretary of State is to communicate to politicians the concerns that teachers have.
Our pressure on politicians is having an effect. Following NUT lobbying in Watford, Richard Harrington MP - vice chair of the Conservative party - has written to Michael Gove saying that teachers have a valid point that Michael Gove’s policy lets schools hire unqualified teachers 'on the cheap’.
