Lack of commitment to invest in Education

Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT (National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers), the largest teachers’ union in the country, had harsh words at the launch of the Conservative Party’s draft Education Manifesto. He pointed out that there is no new policy in the draft and that (the draft) is “eerily silent on any commitment to invest in education”. He called the threats which ‘regrettably’ accompanied the launch of Manifesto (subjecting teachers to unlimited observation, abandoning national pay frameworks, tearing up contracts) “unnecessary and unacceptable”.
