Over 3,500 teachers to lose posts, claims TUI

And that’s just secondary teachers, according to the TUI.

Not 3500 full time equivalents , the department has removed a lot of concessions ( eg a Music teacher with 4 hours a week ) from schools with too many staff according to new ratios . The unions do not give a fiddlers about part timers and never have . Hypocrites :frowning:

The 1000 number given later in the articles is probably full time equivalents .

So what you have there is teachers sacking teachers, what about a 30% paycut for the rest of them then while we’re at it as they dont work the summer.

The TUI already tolerates that haircut for part time PLC teachers who cannot get paid for the summer .
