S1R,—The present basic salary scale for qualified teachers is £570 to £1,170.
The London Teachers' Association (NUT) at their Annual Conference unanimously passed a resolution for a scale of £780 to £1,500.
The N.U.T. Executive's resolution on salaries for the forthcoming Conference is for a scale of £775 to £1,375.
The N.A.S. official policy on salaries is to secure a basic stale of £800 to £1,500.
The A.M.A. at their Council Meeting at Margate this year demanded "substantial improvements in the salaries of teachers".
It will therefore be obvious that teachers do not share the view expressed by Mr. Exworthy (Careers Feature, March 16). I have quoted the above facts as many readers may be under the erroneous impression that Mr. Fxworthy's opinion on salaries represents official N.U.T. policy. Mr. Exworthy (although at present an N.U.T. Executive Member) is merely voicing his own opinion.
