Not only don't have the guts, but also lack the skills.

These lockdowns show just how important teachers are to daily life whether as helping our education or as glorified child minders. And yet a lot of people benefiting from the teachers don't think they deserve a pay rise or safe working conditions. Disgraceful really
Another pay rise???!! I think you will find you earn plenty.

Teachers throughout this pandemic have done nothing but show just how greedy they are and that the world revolves around them and them only!

Stop being greedy and demanding!!

teachers earn between £25,714 to £41,604 going by my google search there. Now, if you've had to deal with your own kids when homeschooling, do you think this is cheap or expensive. As I think most will find the service they offer as cheap

Yeah, like school even matters. At best it's an agency for state control and at worst a national babysitting service.

Even if they do a pointless degree, like political science or sociology, they'll leave and end up in a dead end pointless 5 to 9.

The special ones that break free are the ones that don't think the way they're taught to at school.

My wife is working full time teaching a class (key workers' and vulnerable kids) during the day, then coming home and recording video lessons and setting work to be done online for the kids who aren't in school. Her workload is nigh on doubled.

You missed 4 letters off your list of qualifications. We all know what they are (although your username sums it up). PGCE? Do you actually know what that means? If you do you'll know what an incredibly hard job it is. If you do have one I detect the whiff of failed teacher. Bitter, twisted and massive inferiority complex. Obviously couldn't hack it in a real job. 7 figure salary? Zloty or Lira?

"... have gone 100 years" I am very concerned that you, ostensibly, as a graduate of Oxford University have so many problems with the English language.
Tell me more about the conduct of teachers, but be careful with your English.

What is the easy route?
Theres a book called "Dummies guide to lazy teaching" which teaches to spend the very minimal time copying and pasting other people's work into google classrooms and then who knows what they get upto and sending every child the same feedback "great work" - doesn't really help with development. I can get my cat to do that. Removed

You destroy your own argument with your ignorance. For a piece of writing a teacher will set success criteria, point out what they must, should and could do, mark to this criteria with suggestions as to how to move the quality of the writing on.

why are teachers being allowed to get away with dossing since Mar20 on full pay? Going forward we should curtail their 13wk holidays down to the very ltd say 2 wks so our kids can try to catch up and they can be retrained by foreign teachers such as those in singapore/Japan - its more they need to be taught how to work hard and to get rid of the bad habits such as dossing picked up since mar20 Removed

Assessment is far more subjective than a written examination. If this is then subjected to a second subjective level of evaluation, the level of precision is further reduced.
Nothing to do with lying, simply introducing a second level of personal opinion, the latter conducted by someone who hasn't even met the candidate.
