The teachers unions’ guild system must be abolished, not strengthened, Mr Clegg

2013-10-22 The Telegraph

Gabriel H Sahlgren, Centre for Market Reform of Education at the Institute of Economic Affairs and affiliated to IFN, addressed Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg in regards to the claim that all academies and free schools must hire educators with officially approved teacher qualifications. Sahlgren noted that It would further enforce teachers unions’ monopoly, but would be bad for kids. "Because of the lack of knowledge regarding what makes educators effective, the government should clearly step out of the way here."
