PCS press release
Commenting on concerns raised today (20) by the National Union of Teachers about potential conflicts of interest among education advisers, Public and Commercial Services union general secretary Mark Serwotka said:
"The results of the NUT's research are extremely troubling and the Department for Education needs to move swiftly to allay fears that there are any conflicts of interest in these contracts.
"We share the NUT's serious concerns about a steady deterioration of the public service ethos in the senior ranks of this department and a politicisation of important work that affects the education of all our children.
"Education secretary Michael Gove appears to have been given free rein to use his department to undermine and bypass the impartiality of civil servants to enact a dangerous political project."
