§ Mr. Whitaker
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will consider a scheme to weight the pay of teachers in proportion to the number of children in the class that they teach.
§ Mr. Edward Short
Any change in the teachers' salary provisions is a matter for the Burnham Committee. The salaries of head teachers and the number and size of allowances for posts of special responsibility are already related not to size of classes but to the total number of pupils in a school weighted by age.
