Education secretary Micheal Gove has left his post as David Cameron carried out a cabinet reshuffle.

After four years as Education secretary, Mr Gove has taken the the post of Government Chief Whip, election consigliere and “minister for the Today programme”.

His salary is said to fall from £134,565 to £98,740, and he loses full Cabinet membership.

Throughout his time in cabinet, Mr Gove has pushed through controversial reforms such as the rise and growth of free schools, along with changes to the national curriculum such as five year olds having to learn fractions.

The new Education Secretary is Nicky Morgan, who is a former corporate lawyer from Surrey and it is a big promotion for the MP, who became a Treasury minister last October and Minister for Women in April 2014.

Prime minster David Cameron however, insists that Michael Gove has been handed “one of the most important jobs” in government.

What do you think? Has Michael Gove been promoted or demoted? Will this reshuffle help strengthen our Education system?

National Union of Teachers go on strike

By NewsNo Comments

As of today (July 10), members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) are to join firefighters, civil servants, health and councils workers for a one day strike.

The strike which is taking place across England and Wales, is the biggest walkout since the coalition government came to power, with more than a million people expected to take part.

The NUT, having been in controversy with the coalition government for more than two years – about working conditions, pay and pensions – are calling on members in state schools and sixth form colleges to join them and take part in the strike.

According to a report from The Telegraph, The NUT says that teachers are made to work 60 hours a week, and are faced with the prospect of working up until the age of 68.

Staff are also left feeling melancholy with the plans the government have to axe the national teacher pay system, as the pay structure will be substituted by performance related pay.

The NUT want the strike to make Education Secretary Michael Gove tackle the workload, the pay system and retirement age for teachers.  The Telegraph also report that the NUT wants the Government to reduce the number of Ofsted inspections conducted in schools as it will give teachers more time to focus on their lessons.

What do you think about this? Will it help?
