Populus Survey – Teacher’s performance must be linked with their pay

Education Secretary Michael Gove

According to a recent survey, many people in England agree with the fact that a teacher’s classroom performance must be considered while paying him salary. 62% of 1,723 people, polled by Populus, confirmed that Schools should be able to fix salaries of teachers according to their performance. This showed that people wanted that the teachers’ pay should be related to the quality of their job, said Education Secretary Michael Gove. Rick Nye, the strategy director of Populus said:

These findings show strong Rick Nye, the strategy director of Populus
public support for a move away from the automatic annual pay rises of the past towards performance-related pay in schools.

 

Populus-pollsIn that survey, 43% people opined that a teacher’s teaching performance determined by an annual appraisal programme should be the most important factor in deciding his/ her pay. While other 29% believed that the quality of their teaching should be judged by the children’s report cards. A small fraction of people also said that they should be paid according to the length of their service period, educational qualification of the teacher and to ensure equality with other school teachers. Almost 28% agreed with the fact that

Two teachers doing the same job in the same school, for the same length of time, should always receive the same salary packet, regardless of the outcome of their annual performance appraisal.Two teachers doing the same job in the same school, for the same length of time, should always receive the same salary packet, regardless of the outcome of their annual performance appraisal.

But the unions had a different story to tell. They said that this new change was actually about cutting teachers’ salaries and most parents wanted a national pay system to be followed by schools. In protest to the Government’s new policy of judging teachers’ pay NUT General Secretary, Christine Bloweraccording to their performance from coming September month, two teaching unions, NUT and NASUWT, planned to go on a strike in October. “Teachers have been left with no option other than to take industrial action in the face of the continuing onslaught on their pay”, said Christine Blower, general secretary of NUT.

A regional strike in October will be followed by a one-day national walkout over the issues of pay, pension and working conditions. This will again be followed by a strike in north-west England. Among NUT members, 82.5% voted for strike while 82% of NASUWT members agreed for industrious action. In the Populus poll survey, 29% supported the union’s industrious plan action while 36% were against it. Some 34% believed that teachers offered public services like police so they should be banned from striking.

Speaking at the event in central London, Education Secretary Michael Gove said that NUT and NASUWT were standing in the way of a respected profession. He also clarified that the bases of strike, these union presented, couldn’t wash the public brain and that they should call it off. He said that the decision of strike was not “harbinger of greater prestige” but showed the “defensive” image of teachers.

However, Ms. Blower, criticizing the policy, said that the government proposal was about cutting the salary of the teachers and not rewarding them for their service. She also clarified that there were already some provisions of withholding teacher’s salary for poor performance but this act, supported by majority has brought disgrace and humiliation for the teachers. She added that teachers had left with no other option but to go on a strike to enter into a meaningful negotiation with the government. Dr Mary BoustedDr Mary Bousted, general secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, accused Mr. Gove for such lewd remark and said that there was no evidence that such action could enhance teachers’ performance or have good impact on children’s education.

College Football Players Asked to Pay Attention to Education

What do you usually associate with athletes, especially footballers? Great strength, excellent stamina, teamwork, discipline and fun. Why fun? Because their job, their career is their ability to play a game that they love. But how long can this career last? Can their physical prowess sustain them and their families throughout their life? These are some of the questions that many started thinking about when the Abuja Football College players were asked to concentrate on their academic education too.

Captain Damir Miskovic | Chairman of the Abuja Football College | Chairman of HNK Rijeka and the vice-president of the Croatia Football Association

Captain Damir Miskovic, who is the Chairman of the Abuja Football College, the chairman of HNK Rijeka and the vice-president of the Croatia Football Association, said,

I want to congratulate you on the success you have just recorded. We are also so happy with the way you conducted yourselves throughout your stay in Croatia. You are indeed worthy ambassadors of Nigeria. I however want to urge you to pay serious attention to your education. You cannot play football forever. I also played football but had to stop when I got injured. We shall help you in your educational pursuit because if you can combine football with education, you will have a better future.

The Abuja Football College team of under-seventeen players have recently won an international football tournament that was held in Croatia.

Miskovic’s words have highlighted the importance of balancing both sport and academia. Many well performing players forget or don’t prepare for the fact that their professional football career would be over by the time they are in their early thirties. An unfortunate injury, on or off the field, could make these precious few years even shorter. What would they do after this if they had no academic credits to lean back on?

Since professional athletes can have a hard time balancing regular and fixed college timings and classes, a prudent choice would be distance education. Since online classes and materials can be accessed anywhere and at any time, the players could study around their football schedule and still hold a national or global educational degree. This would ensure that they would have a variety of options open to them after their retirement from their athletic career. Through the distance mode they could study business management, law, media studies, computers, etc. After studying these subjects at the undergraduate or post graduate level, sports journalism, sports management, sports tourism, sports law, coaching, talent management, physiotherapy, etc. are just some of the few career avenues they could pursue.
