National Union of Teacher's urges strikes and mass resistance in opposition to local pay
Schools face further disruption after teachers voted on Monday to stage a campaign of mass resistance, including strikes, against government plans for local pay which they warn are part of a wider agenda to fragment and privatise education.
The National Union of Teachers annual conference in Torquay heard delegates denounce the education secretary, Michael Gove, over a battery of policies including the expansion of academies, free schools and local pay, which some said would lead to a "complete destruction of state education".
