To all of my teacher friends… please do get in touch, on Linkedin, with a governor of 30 years’ experience (Nigel Cox
out of network3rd+ Senior IT Industry Executive, Business Owner and Leader in Education and Government sectors) who posted this:
“Teaching is a very easy job. Teachers progress through a structured pay process without particular supporting merit resulting in highly paid teachers who don’t really pull their weight. As a result new entrants to the career are trapped at the bottom of the scales and responsibilities by the highly paid dead people’s shoes above them. The result is a stagnant and stale profession that people leave despite their vocational commitment. TeChing had to become more of a meritocracy and less of an institution. As a former chair of governors and currrnt governor I have never encountered a profession so out of touch with the rest of the working population.”
Perhaps someone could help this Leader in Education and Government sectors with his use of accurate English here? Please do help this poor soul. If you would like to comment on his suitability to be a school governor please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
