Apologies for the Daily Fail link- I couldn't find the article on the BBC.

Who is the mumsnetter they've quoted?!

Perhaps sacking a few failing teachers might help.

Sacking failing teachers?!

Why not its what happens in business? Pay the good teachers well, get rid of the bad.

If a teacher is thought to be failing, it is incredibly easy to get rid of them.

It's what happens in schools. Except for the paying the good teachers well...

cdtaylornats I presume you've had no contact with the upper end of primary education in the past year and therefore have absolutely no idea what's been happening with the new SATS. Rest assured, the fact that almost half of year 6 have suddenly been judged as failing is not down to poor teaching.

Unless you're being sarcastic of course.

cdtaylor this thread is in The Staffroom. Teacher bashers with ignorant views are not welcome. If you want to claim that poor teaching is responsible for 47% of children not meeting the government's new standards, start your own thread in education.

Cdtaylor - you do know that, just like in any other job, that staff who are failing will go through official procedures and will ultimately lose their job. It happens. Just because you might not read about in the the Daily Mail doesn't mean it's not happening in schools.

So, now we know that failing teachers do get sacked - how about failing government ministers???

The MNetter quote was in one of the SATS threads this weekend.

Your bias is showing.

You're aware that teachers are leaving the profession in unprecedented numbers? That training institutions are not meeting their trainee quotas? That the majority of newly trained teachers don't make it past 5 years in the profession? That there have been a number of shortage areas for years (maths, physics, MFL, chemistry...) and that this issue has not been solved by throwing thousands of pounds at so-called 'good candidates'?

Exactly where are all these 'good' teachers you are going to pay more going to come from?
