Teachers are the educators for the Nation. Teaching is a vital element within society which at its very best challenges, stimulates and ignites a passion for lifelong learning. Teachers also provide in effect many hours of child minding because when children are in school being taken care of by teaching staff, it allows parents to get on with their lives and to work. So there are many aspects which can be analysed with regards to teaching as to its essential role within society.
Now in addition the value of getting good results and even excellent results is only achievable with dedicated, professional and valued teaching staff. So my question is:
How does a 1% below inflation pay award, reward them??
