More than 60,000 children taught by unqualified teachers
Do you know that there could be unqualified teachers teaching in your children’s school?
The Labour party has accused Theresa May of allowing more than 600,000 pupils to be taught by unqualified teachers! The number seems very high to us, can there really be that many children being taught by unqualified teachers?
According to BBC News there are 24,000 teachers without formal teaching qualifications in state schools in England which has increased by more than 60% in the last four years!
We understand in some subjects like sport and music it could be beneficial to have professionals in the field taking classes but to have so many unqualified teachers in our schools seems irresponsible.
