No surprise there, then. The ESF has announced that they have made some fairly minor adjustments to the new salary packages for teachers to take effect next September.
ESF chief executive Heather Du Quesnay said staff and parents had played a significant role in helping the foundation make changes to the proposal.
"These changes have been made in response to the cogent, well developed and evidenced arguments put to us by individual teachers, school councils and parents," she said.
Note the rather pointed mention of individual teachers. The nonsense spouted by the Association of Professional Teachers of ESF Schools, and its chairman Julian Harniess, may possibly not have been quite so "cogent, well developed or evidenced" (evidenced? is that a word). In fact, one might almost say that it was unhelpful. Oh, I did already, and he did.
