Forget charter schools. How about schools run by the military?
Thousands of former members of the Armed Forces wanting to become teachers will be fast tracked into the profession under a Government scheme launched today.
Ex members of the Army, Navy and Royal Air Force will be lured into teaching with bursaries, salaries during training and fast track qualification courses.
The move could see thousands of former soldiers, sailors and airmen enter classrooms each year and is the latest initiative by the Government to promote a military ethos in schools.
