Thicky Nicky wants to send ‘elite’ teachers to schools in coastal areas? Maybe they do need help but This Writer would have thought a far better use of them would be in the failing ‘Free Schools’ that were created as previous education secretary Michael Gove’s vanity project.
And what’s this about the “next phase” of an “education reform programme”?
Let’s have some honesty: They’re making it up as they go.
The government is planning to send 1,500 elite teachers into under-performing schools as part of measures to tackle pockets of failure in education.
As an incentive for committing to a two-year secondment, teachers will be offered a higher salary, relocation costs and future leadership roles. They will be sent to schools in coastal areas and elsewhere which struggle to recruit and retain staff.
Details of the new National Teaching Service (NTS) will be revealed by the education secretary, Nicky Morgan, in a speech on Tuesday to announce the next phase of the government’s education reform programme.
