I would say well done to Michael Gove for axing the General Teaching Council. The GTC was set up with no support from teachers, no campaign asking for its creation, no support fro the unions, and with no clear purpose.
The GTC is supposed to fight for teachers interests, but is no more than a chocolate fireguard. It has achieved not one thing of any note for the teaching profession and its passing will not see any mourning or sorrow from teachers.
Good riddance GTC.
