Last week’s poll: teaching the teachers

We recived 430 responses to our surey last week, with the largest group os respondents, 44 per cent, opting for the cautious choice, welcoming the government’s £67million plan to provide specialist training in maths, physics and technology to 15,000 qualified teachers, but adding that industry initatives must accompany the training. A quarter thought the plan was an essential move to improve STEM teaching standards, whole 20 per cent worrried that it wouldn’t be enough to address braoader deficiencies in STEM knowledge in scools. Only 6 per cent thought the move was unnecessary government posturing, while 5 per cent declined to pick an option.
