Overworked young teachers united at the weekend to attack "clueless" Tory Education Secretary Michael Gove.
A shocking 97 per cent of Britain's young teaching talent said the Con-Dem coalition was clueless about the realities of day-to-day teaching.
A conference organised by Britain's largest teaching union NASUWT at the weekend found that more than 80 per cent of delegates believed the government didn't respect or value teachers.
A Department of Education spokesman dismissed the damning evidence as "not a proper poll" and claimed Mr Gove's reforms were "helping those teaching to do their jobs even better."
But NASUWT general secretary Chris Keates said the "professional effectiveness is being undermined as a result of the cuts to education and the damaging impact of the accountability regime."
