Stephen Twigg: If you insult teachers, it is no wonder they quit

Labour Press Release

Stephen Twigg MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to news
that the number of teachers in England's state school system fell by
10,000 and the number of teaching assistants by more than 6,000 in the
year to November, said:

"It will be of real concern to parents that teachers are leaving or being
removed from the profession in droves.

"School budgets are being cut by the biggest amount since the 1950s. This
is a triple whammy - fewer people are being attracted into the profession,
the Government is cutting teacher training places and more are leaving.
When Labour was in Government, the number of teachers increased by more
than 42,000.

"Michael Gove has lambasted teachers as the 'enemies of promise' and
'whingers'. If you insult teachers, it is no wonder they quit.

"Of course we need to raise standards, but we can only do that by taking
the profession with you, not insulting them.

"Teachers are the key to unlocking the potential of children and young
people. If we cannot convince teachers to stay in the profession, then we
will not make progress to raise the quality of learning."
