There’s no evidence it results in better leads to schools and it is fuelling the teacher retention and recruitment crisis.”
The Nation’s Union of Instructors (NUT) stated its demands would increase funding to varsities and education, guarantee conditions and terms in most kinds of schools, and also to resume discussions on teacher contracts to permit workload to become addressed.
Acting general secretary Kevin Courtney stated: “No teacher finds taking strike action easy however the situation within our schools must be urgently addressed. School budgets are now being cut towards the bone. The result on children’s education is obvious. Class dimensions ‘re going up, subjects are now being taken off the curriculum, mainly in the Arts, while teaching posts are now being cut or otherwise changed.
“Industrial action causes disruption to children’s education, for their parents who need to take time unemployed to set up childcare as well as damages the status of the marketplace. We urge the NUT again to not proceed with this particular action and to utilize us to solve their dispute in the negotiating table rather than playing politics with children’s futures.”
