Incompetent Scots teachers to be barred more quickly

Incompetent teachers may be barred more quickly under proposals put forward by the profession's regulatory body.
The General Teaching Council of Scotland (GTCS) wants earlier hearings for cases, and for the most serious the option of suspension from duties until a full hearing.
The GTCS started striking incompetent teachers off three years ago.
Scotland's largest teaching union, the EIS said it did not want to see cases being dealt with in a superficial way.
Drew Morrice, assistant secretary of the Educational Institute of Scotland, said: "The EIS believes that anyone with a case to answer at the GTCS is entitled to be able to make their case in full and for that to be properly considered. "We would have concerns if cases were expedited because of a public perception there is a need for a more prompt disposal of cases."
Interesting that they are trying to actually have teeth in Scotland probably due to fear of being scrapped like GTC in England for being branded as toothless.
Should GTC return to England or is this a bad thing?
