Almost eight out of 10 schools appoint lower paid, less experienced staff because they cannot afford to pay better qualified teachers, The Independent reports (p5).

A survey of 145 primary schools and 51 secondary schools by the National Association of Head Teachers also found that six out of ten heads say they have less money this year than last, and almost a third claim the quality of education they provide is declining, partly because of increased class sizes.
