More Good Teachers

By Sam Freedman, Briar Lipson, David Hargreaves

More Good Teachers demonstrates how we can recruit, retain and develop a new generation of talented, inspired and effective teachers to tackle educational inequality. It shows how we must reject the current command and control approach to recruitment, training and pay and resist calls to further ‘professionalise’ teaching in ways which only make it less appealing to the high performing graduates whom we need in our schools.

It argues instead that we should embrace methods more attuned to today’s graduates and the modern employment market.
