NUT boss favours Manx education system

A trip around the Island's schools has been described by a major UK union leader as 'fascinating'.

Anne Swift, president of the National Union of Teachers, spoke out in support of the Manx education system for the 'all round development' it awards to pupils.

She was impressed with the flexibility and freedom of local teachers - but warned that both funding and recruitment  present major issues both at home and away.

Overall, Mrs Swift believes Manx pupils actively benefit from the style of teaching she's witnessed.
