Ofsted wrong to tamper with teachers’ pay!!!

Teachers must work harder row 
A teachers leader has criticised England’s chief inspector of schools after he said they must work extra hours if they want a pay rise.
It is not and should never be within Ofsted’s remit to tamper in teachers’ pay. I entirely agree with the teaching unions; they should stick with standards and not have their political strings pushed and pulled from above.

 Teachers vote to strike over pay

With my children at school the possibility of industrial action is worrying however I agree that teachers are being treated unfairly by the Government. What they are asking for is fair. If morale in schools is low this will clearly be reflected in teaching standards which affects us all.

Performance Related Pay for Teachers…impossible to quantify!

Here’s my take on the story that appeared on the BBC website yesterday regarding proposals to introduce performance related pay for teachers…. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-18089505

Performance related pay in the teaching profession is surely impossible to quantify?

Every lesson in every classroom on any given day presents different challenges. The variables are endless; class size, location, age, demographic. Along with that each and every cohort is unique; possibly similar or totally different from the last and the next. And how do we measure performance? Exam results? Disciplinary record? Attendance?

As well as that, performance related pay naturally introduces competition which can breed disharmony. Teachers should be paid equally and fairly.

Would love to know your opinion!
