First published in 1983, Teaching Under Attack examines the nature and direction of the attack on the education service, and on the teaching profession in particular. It examines the effects of cuts on UK schools and also considers how far the activities of teachers’ unions can counteract such trends. It looks at the issue of teachers’ strikes, the use of sanctions and the relationship between the profession and central and local government. In addition, it analyses the political context in which teaching operated at the time, considers in detail teachers’ pay, conditions of service and promotion, and suggests how teachers could make the most of the system. It reviews the question of accountability and the APU and provides examples of successful professional practices at school and classroom level.
