Politics and Economics AS level question:
Imagine you are a government minister who wishes to raise standards in teaching by attracting high quality graduates to the teaching profession. Compare and contrast the effectiveness of these policy suggestions:
a) Subject prospective teachers to tough literary and numeracy tests, and reject candidates who do not achieve a high standard.
b) Examine other professions that top quality graduates enter, and put teaching on an equal footing with these profession by increasing the salary of teachers to something more comparable.
c) Reduce government interference and constraints that restrict the ability of teachers to teach as they see fit by continually shifting the goalposts through top-down dictats.
