'The public sector pay cap is just stubborn political rhetoric – we need to invest in the future generation now'
If we don’t improve teachers' salaries in order to retain and attract good staff, that's going to harm standards and leave the next generation ill-equipped for what lies ahead, writes NAHT's general secretary designate.
Our prime minister and our chancellor are both out of step with public opinion on what is a fair price to pay the people who work in our public services.
Nurses, teachers and other public servants are being paid less in real terms than they were in 2010. That’s a long time to go without a meaningful increase. And most people now think that they deserve more money.
