Get teachers (not schools ) back to work !

There are many teachers pulling their weight and trying to teach remotely - there are quite a few who are simply enjoying time off.
More use of could be made of those teacher being currently paid 100% salary yet doing doing much - ie more classes being held by video. One to one video tutorial sessions for face to face individual contact with children.
Our council even had the nerve to allow our school to keep their in service training days - saying that the time away from teaching was still necessary ( really ?)
There is a vast expensive under utilised resource being paid for by the public purse !
More monitoring of teacher activity and approaches is needed - and pile on the praise for the cohort of teachers who are genuinely trying their best for their pupils.

Why the contribution is important

Pupils would benefit more from getting video classes and one to one tutorial time via video links.
It would tap into a vastly under-utilised expensive public resource more effectively than the current “send an email now and again to 30 pupils “ haphazard approach.

    Pure spite.

    I completely agree. Teachers are not stepping up. Most are home on a 5 month holiday whilst vulnerable children are suffering. Their online contribution is sporadic, inadequate and there is huge variation in standards. Many are keen for schools to close to protect themselves whilst every other key worker and public sector worker is putting themselves at risk and doing their job. I have teacher friends who are enjoying the extended time at home and educating their own children who will inevitably be at the top of the curve when schools do go back. Not really very fair.
