` National Teacher’s Strike takes place across ` England and Wales ‘ over Pay and Conditions ‘

#AceUKNews – BRITAIN – March 26 – A national teachers’ strike taking place across England and Wales on Wednesday is affecting 10,000 schools, including in London, Oxford city and Yorkshire, which have all been closed to their students.

The National Union of Teachers is protesting working conditions, the potential introduction of performance-related pay and pensions, with NUT deputy general secretary Kevin Courtney labelling the industrial action a ‘last resort’, criticizing Education Secretary Michael Gove’s policies for ‘exhausting and demoralizing’ teaching staff.
