Where have all the science teachers gone?
A friend of mine who happens to be a science teacher posted his CV and within an hour was contacted by more than ten agencies. He was told by all about the problems schools are facing recruiting science teachers and the drastic measures some are having to take in order to be able to deliver the curriculum. I thought the feature that I read recently regarding schools having to use unqualified staff was slightly exaggerated but it seems not. Interesting but also concerning.
