Poor teachers will face sack sooner

Plans to make it easier for head teachers in England to sack under-performing staff are to go ahead from September, the government says.

It says poor teachers could be removed within a term instead of a year, which can be the case at present.

The education secretary, Michael Gove, says schools have been "tangled in red tape" for too long when dealing with struggling teachers.
