Kate Green MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Education, responding to news that the Government will break its manifesto commitment to raise teacher salaries to £30,000 by 2022/23, said:
“This is a kick in the teeth for dedicated teachers who have been working incredibly hard throughout the pandemic to ensure children continue to receive their education.
“The Government claims to be working to deliver ‘world class’ education, but it’s breaking its manifesto commitment to teachers. Real terms cuts to school funding and under valuing of staff risks driving experienced teachers from our classrooms.”
