Bradley hypocrisy over new teachers exposed

6 November, 2007


Sinn Féin MLA Paul Butler has said that the hypocrisy of Dominic Bradley's concern over the plight of newly qualified teachers being unable to secure full time permanent teaching posts while he retains a full time teaching post and his job as an Assembly member does little to advance their cause.

Mr Butler said:

"The issue of newly qualified teachers being unable to secure full time permanent teaching posts is an important one.

"However, their situation is not helped by any politician, who on top of a job and salary as a full-time politician also retains a full time teaching position within a school. They become part of the problem because they occupy a post that if released could enable a newly qualified teacher to get on the road to a full time permanent position." ENDS
