Schools could be funded partly by their results under controversial new proposals involving primary and secondary schools which meet literacy, numeracy and exam targets qualifying for extra cash, The Guardian reports (p3).
The move expected to 'enrage' main teacher unions, is one element in a wide-ranging package designed to provide a more rewarding career for teachers. It is to be set out in a green paper next month.
Nigel de Gruchy, general secretary of the National Association of School Masters and Union of Women Teachers said payment by results was ' a nonsense' which had been tried before and failed.
Mr Blunkett is expected to set out some of the themes and principles underlying the green paper at a Fabian Society conference next Thursday.
