BIRMINGHAM TEACHERS SET TO STRIKE IN DISRUPTIVE PUPIL ROW

Six teachers at a Birmingham City Council primary school are expected to announce strike action today after a row with the school's governors over a disruptive pupil, BBC Radio Four's Today Programme reported this morning.

The headteacher suspended the eight year old boy last year for disruptive behaviour, but this was overturned by the governors.

The teachers asked Birmingham for support but instead the council sent an extra teacher to the school so the boy could stay.

The dispute has become bitter, Today reports. The six teachers, all members of the National Association of Schoolmasters/Association of Women Teachers, voted on industrial action earlier this week and are expected today to call for a one day strike.
