Union launches teaching hotline
A union has opened a hotline for any teachers in Scotland to report concerns about incidents of pupil indiscipline.
Teachers will be able to report concerns by text or voicemail.
It comes amid a rolling programme of ballots, with teachers at around 200 schools involved in a dispute with the Scottish Government.
Today will also see action short of strike begin in relation to pupil indiscipline, following on from similar instructions over workload.
Chris Keates, acting general secretary of teaching union NASUWT, said: “No teacher should go to work with the expectation that they will be either verbally or physically abused, and while they are members of the NASUWT they will not.”
