Teachers threaten strike action

NUT general secretary Christine Blower said: "Occasionally saying we have the best generation of teachers we've ever had in no way compensates for the onslaught of attacks and threats to pay, pensions and working conditions."
The unions wrote to Education Secretary Michael Gove to seek urgent discussions about the "enormous threats" to teacher morale and the education system itself. They called on Mr Gove to reach agreement before the start of the next academic year if industrial action is to be averted.
Officials said teaching is now in "crisis", with growing numbers considering quitting and virtually everyone opposed to Government policies.
