Gove warned on teachers’ pay

7 January: The Guardian reports that teachers unions have criticised Michael Gove’s plans for performance related pay, warning that pay rises for some could lead to pay cuts or even redundancies for others.

Brian Lightman, the [Association of School and College Leaders] general secretary, said: “While more flexibility to link pay and performance is welcome, pragmatically it will be difficult to do within the current school budget constraints. In a climate where budgets are at best static and at worst declining significantly, the corollary of paying some teachers more must be paying other teachers less, or making them redundant.”
