Teacher retention rate decline – Mike Kane responds

Mike Kane MP, Labour’s Shadow Schools Minister, commenting on the decline in the teacher retention rate, said:

“The Tories have created a crisis in teacher recruitment retention, and new teachers are now less likely to stay in our schools than at any time in over twenty years.

“Years of real terms pay cuts and skyrocketing workload levels are driving teachers out of our schools in droves, letting down a generation of children.

“The next Labour government will ensure that every child has a good teacher, with ring-fenced funding for a real pay rise as part of a National Education Service.”
