Teachers to be offered cash to stay in school
Cash incentives and a better work-life balance are part of a new attempt to solve England's teacher shortage.
Plans published on Monday by ministers will offer some young secondary teachers £5,000 in their third and fifth years in the classroom - on top of initial £20,000 training bursaries.
Rather than give top-ups to teachers, perhaps the government should consider higher base salaries instead. Either the education of our children is important and we want to attract high quality people into the teaching profession, or we do not.
