“The Secretary of State needs to take seriously the very deep concerns and anger of teachers and school leaders."
I read this quote on Twitter (which as you know I'm a huge advocate of - follow our school @Phoenix_Ashford) in the context of NASUWT and NUT announcing National Strike action in the Autumn Term.
Obviously, there are teachers out there who are very angry about what Chris Keates terms the 'relentless attack on the teaching profession.' After all, 82% of the 40% turnout voted for industrial action (for the non-Maths specialists amongst you, this equates to 32.8% of the NASUWT membership) - not an insignificant minority.
So, having read this quote, I reflected on what it was about my job that made me angry.
