Teachers demanded a 10 per cent pay rise yesterday and said they refused to take “lessons in morality” from Government ministers over money.
The National Union of Teachers(NUT) voted to campaign for a £3,000 or 10 per cent salary increase, whichever is greater, because they said they had been underpaid during the boom years.
Being teachers, you will, of course, understand your humble Devil's reply to this demand...
Apart from anything else, there is no money left: you fucks are going to be incredibly fucking lucky not to be facing a pay cut. As such, I suggest that you shut your fucking traps.
Dave Clinch, who proposed the motion, said young teachers were being forced to leave the profession because they could not afford to live, adding: “Teachers are being forced to grovel for money that’s rightfully theirs.”
No, you cunt, that money rightfully belongs to the taxpayer; it is the result of our toil, and you have fuck all right to any of it.
You certainly have fuck all right to any of my money, since I have not used, do not use—and intend to try to make damn fucking sure that I never do need to use—your services, you bunch of useless cretins.
How about we make your pay performance-related, eh? Here's a proposal: you can have a pay rise when not one single child leaves state education unable to read and write.
You fucking sort that—by, y'know, actually teaching—and we'll talk again.
In the meantime, fuck off.
UPDATE: if teachers want higher pay, The Englishman has a few suggestions...
Abolish LEAs and all rules and restrictions as to who can run a school.
Hand over the keys and deeds of every school to the governing bodies
Give 100% of the education budget to parents as vouchers for them to spend where they want to on education.
And then if junior teachers can earn £100,000 a year because they are worth it, great.
Quite so. But right now, what teachers are paid does not reflect their market value (either up or down). So, let's instigate a system which we know—from Sweden if nowhere else—actually works and improves outcomes for the kiddies (that is why we are doing this education thing, isn't it?).
Until then, and whilst it's my money their demanding, teachers can still fuck off.
