Following the publication of the election manifesto by the Conservative Party, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of NASUWT – The Teachers’ Union said:

“The last 14 years have seen schools and colleges underfunded, a teaching profession on its knees, record numbers of unfilled teaching vacancies, and a government that has failed to meet its own teacher training targets across almost every subject.

“It is concerning that the Conservative Party Manifesto contains no measures that will tackle these issues, no commitment to deliver the additional real terms investment our schools and colleges need, and no measures to end the workload crisis that continues to drive record numbers of teachers out of the job.

“With our schools literally crumbling, teachers and parents should be concerned that the Conservative’s Manifesto is devoid of any big ideas or proposals that will fix our broken education system. Instead, the prospect of further real-terms cuts to public spending will make the work of our schools and colleges impossible.

“We need a new government that is committed to delivering a new deal for teachers and for children’s education rather than continuing to peddle the same damaging policies of the last 14 years.”
