In this issue

The May/June 2016 issue of the Teacher magazine is out now!

In this issue we take an in-depth look at the Government’s controversial White Paper, which plans to force all schools to become academies by 2022 and poses a significant threat to teachers’ terms and conditions. We outline the damaging proposals and suggest ways you can get involved in the fight back against this attack on education, including voting YES for strike action.

You can also read about the highlights of the NUT Conference 2016, which included a rousing speech from Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, along with all the key motions and award winners. Elsewhere the People’s Assembly march against austerity and the sixth form college strike are both covered.

The dangers of focusing on numbers and test scores at the expense of the child is addressed in our Backbeat section and the results are in as we look at the NUT survey on what teachers really think about the current state of education.

We hope you enjoy the read!
