asked the President of the Board of Education whether he will take steps to remedy the grievance which a very large number of certificated teachers feel at the Board's refusal to recognise for salary uncertificated service before becoming certificated, a concession which many local authorities have granted in the past and would probably continue to do so if the same carried grant from the Board of Education?
I do not see my way to recognise service as an uncertificated teacher before certification as certificated teacher service for the purpose of increments on the certificated teacher scale. I may, however, call the hon. Member's attention to the answer which I gave on the 5th April to the hon. Member for the Rushcliffe Division (Mr. Betterton).
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that under paragraph 2 (c) of F.S.D. 4, issued by the Board on the 26th April, 1922, a certificated man teacher, who prior to the date of certification would have been entitled to the maximum salary on the Burnham uncertificated teacher scale, is allowed to enter the Burnham certificated scale at that salary only from 1st April, 1922; and whether he will issue instructions making it clear that all service as a certificated teacher, including that prior to 1st April, 1921, shall be allowed in assessing salary receivable under the Burnham scale?
I regret that I do not understand the hon. Member's question, and would ask him to supply me with details of the particular case which he has in mind.
