Monkey Tennis Posted December 1, 2022 Share Posted December 1, 2022 8 hours ago, virginton said: They also couldn't get away with massively differentiating between the wages of teachers in the most urgently needed or valuable subject knowledges, compared to primary school teachers (for example). Yet if the wage structure was actually aligned to the market, that would also be in place and there wouldn't be as acute a shortage of teachers in certain subjects. The wages of teachers - just like the majority of public sector roles - are entirely divorced from genuine market forces. And yet, there have been plenty bursary schemes and suchlike in place to additionally reward teachers of STEM subjects. The claim of "entirely divorced" on this flimsy basis is therefore rendered yet sillier. 8 hours ago, virginton said: The only thing that is bizarre here is your 'those people earning £30k aren't yet equipped to do their job' claim. It's above the maximum pay ceiling for many roles in the Scottish economy regardless of the amount of training and experience those workers have. Nah, still no idea what this means in relation to my initial post. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
