Education Reforms to Include More Power for Heads

Tuesday 3rd May 2011

The government has announced their intention to outline plans to help head teachers remove badly performing teachers quickly from their schools. This is an education reform designed to help improve the performance of schools and to boost the standard of teaching, and teachers, around the country. It can currently take up to a year to remove poor teachers and the new guideline will aim to reduce this period down to just a few months. The government wants to give head teachers more power to be able to sack under-performing teachers themselves in order to make teaching standards better. Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, said the move would give heads the ability to “manage out of the profession those people who should not be teaching”. The new measures are due later this month.
