SAY NO TO FREEMASON SCHOOLS ACADEMIE’S

  NOVANEWS  


Will ‘Free’ schools use qualified teachers?

There is growing concern that ‘Free’ Schools will try emulate their private school friends and avoid employing trained teachers. Alasdair Smith, of the Anti Academies Alliance, thinks the government could be on dodgy ground. “I think these ministers have got the idea from their old private schools, where anyone can teach, without a formal qualification, but state-funded schools are different. The idea that free schools might not use qualified teachers would be very worrying for most parents because QTS is evidence that the teacher understands how to provide quality teaching and learning.”
