MOT for teachers? No thank you

I've written an article on the new 'MOT for teachers', published today on the Counter Fire website. I argue the proposal - involving inspections of teacher competence every five years - is symptomatic of a wider assualt on the public sector, reflecting the effects of the neoliberal offensive in recent years.

This is an issue the teacher unions ought to treat as high priority, as it affects every teacher in the country and (as I argue) taps into some deeper issues concerning education and public service.
