Batman and Robin

Just a quick blog:

This article from The Sunday Times raises eyebrows but also questions.

Here is my take on it.

Assume that schools get rid of their teaching assistants. Why not pay each teacher £2k-3k more but expect them to do all the tasks that occur in schools (marking, teaching, planning, mounting displays, entering data, preparing resources).

If the teacher chooses to do all these tasks themselves then the teacher receives more pay.

However if the teacher chooses to contract out the work, they then pay an assistant to do it. This way a teacher chooses if they want to do more than "just teaching".

It's just a thought...
