The BBC reported that England’s £4.3 million flagship troops to teachers scheme had only managed to recruit 28 teachers, which equates at £153,571.42 per teacher! These figures were revealed in a parliamentary question, and were not part of a Department for Education release, which usually celebrate the positives of government initiatives to the hungry media world – funny that!
According to Ofsted, England’s cuddly inspection regime, Stamford Hill boys school teach their pupils that, “women’s only role is to clean and cook”. The Independent reported that the school, which charges annual fees of £2,860, was found to be prioritising the “ethos of its faith” over educational standards and not preparing children for life in modern British society.
