NASUWT: Teachers will receive reduced pay under new plan

Commentating on the School Workforce in England data released today by the Department for Education, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers' union, said:

"The statistical evidence published today gives the lie to the Secretary of State's claim that extending the pay freedoms of academy schools to all schools will result in good teachers being paid more.

"The Secretary of State's changes are resulting in considerably reduced pay for all classroom teachers."
