Glasgow facing supply teacher crisis

A LACK of supply teachers in Scotland’s biggest city is affecting attainment and exam preparation, the country’s largest teaching union has warned.

The Educational Institute of Scotland said it had “serious concerns” about the difficulty finding cover for schools in Glasgow due to controversial changes to pay and conditions.

Under working arrangements introduced in 2011, supply teachers now earn just £78 a day ­before tax, compared to about £150 before. Critics of the deal have warned that Scotland is ­facing a “classroom crisis”.
