December 01, 2010 1:11 PM

The quality of teacher training in Scotland was criticised yesterday. Poor quality candidates are apparently making it in to the profession. In response, Tony Axon of the lecturers' union UCU said:

"People may complain about spelling and grammar but these days we sit at a computer which works out much of that for you. Are those skills really as important as they used to be?"

A clear example of the need to free schools from the stranglehold of the deluded unions and the bureaucracies they represent, if more were needed.The quality of teacher training in Scotland was criticised yesterday.
