Blair has said public sector pay growth is exceeding that in the private sector
for the first time in many years.
Financial Times reports a government shake-up will allow head teachers to
receive salaries of up to £100,000.
450,000 teachers have been awarded a 3.5 per cent pay increase to help improve
recruitment and retention in education.
annual pay growth in the public sector was at 5 per cent in the year to
November, compared with 3.6 per cent in the private sector.
the NUT claimed that the new £17,628 starting salary for teachers, a rise of 22
per cent, still falls £2,000 short of what graduates can earn in other jobs.
