From The Socialist newspaper, 7 November 2012

Teacher bashing season continues

Unfortunately the 'teacher bashing' season isn't finished yet. A salvo was launched by Ofqual last week, when most teachers were on a well-deserved break, accusing them of fiddling coursework marks.

What an absolute disgrace from an organisation that changed the grade boundaries unfairly causing disappointment and heartache for as many as 67,000 GCSE students.

When schools are faced with horrendous consequences if they fail to reach certain targets of course there is pressure on schools and teachers but to accuse teachers of fiddling is insulting.

Now is the time to re-launch the campaign to scrap league tables and floor targets and allow teachers to teach.

Jane Nellist, Coventry NUT

Teachers at Stratford Academy in east London took two days of strike action on 6 and 7 October. This followed a one-day strike the previous week.

The action is over a pay cut and bullying, anti-union management. See teachers-at-stratford-academy-strike-against-scandalous-pay-cuts for a report.
