Posted November 05, 2020 08:33:48A new set of guidelines on teaching and learning will be unveiled by the UK’s board of schools later this month.
It’s a change that has already sparked debate over what should be the next generation of education professionals.
The Department for Education has already issued a statement saying it’s “working with experts to develop a new framework” that will “better define the role of the teacher and the teacher’s role”.
The new guidance says the role should be “to support the individual and their learning experience in their academic journey”.
However, some have questioned whether it should include any new roles for parents, teachers or parents’ teachers.
Critics say this could “disparage” the role teachers currently play in schools and would limit teachers’ abilities to provide support and guidance to parents.
One of the key issues in the new board will be how parents and teachers can work more closely.
“We know that parents are in a much stronger position in teaching, but there are other factors that affect that,” said Alison White, head of the Children and Young People’s Commissioner’s Office.
In the UK, parents are paid a salary of £18,000 per year and teachers are paid £14,000, but the Government says parents and educators are expected to work together in a collaborative way.
As part of the new guidance, the government will also provide parents with more information about what a “responsible parent” looks like and the responsibilities they have to their children.
Many parents are now also being told that they can now use their children’s names and social media profiles, including photos of their children, to identify them when they are in class.
Other changes include the addition of a new section on the curriculum that will teach parents and children how to work better together.
What parents are saying about the new guidelines: “I’ve never had a conversation about my children, I just feel like my kids need to be a part of it,” said Anne-Marie Coughlan, who is from Essex.
She has two children aged between 11 and 12, and said she had to tell her son’s teacher in a meeting about how he should not be talking to his mother and that he should stay in class with his other teacher.
After a long day of talking to her son, Coughlans mother told her son that she had a different way of dealing with him.
“He said, ‘I love my mom and I want to talk to her,'” she said.
Coughlan added that she felt like her son was getting the wrong message about what to do in class, and that she wanted to know more about the guidelines before signing up to send her children to school.
But she said that after having her son in class she was still not happy.
Anne-Marie said she feels “so bad for all the children that don’t know what’s going on” in her class and that her daughter was feeling frustrated and stressed because she didn’t know how to communicate with her mother.
This is a big change for her and her husband, who was also given the option of having a different child, she said, but they are both “not comfortable” with it.
They have a “very different understanding of what it is to teach children”.
“It’s not about telling them what they should be doing, it’s about how we’re going to teach them how to teach,” she said of the change.
Teachers’ union slams new guidelines as ‘shocking’The British Association of Teachers said the changes were “shocking”.
“These new guidelines, while not new, have not been carefully thought through and do not adequately reflect the changing needs of our classrooms and communities,” it said.
The British Teachers said it was concerned about the lack of guidance and support that parents were getting in terms of communicating with their children in the classroom, how to deal with them when the teachers are away, and how to support their children with homework.
A number of the recommendations include changing the wording of the guidelines to reflect how children learn in the early years, and a more inclusive approach to the role parents and parents’ teacher should play.

Changes will include new guidance on how parents can support and help their children: Parents can now send in pictures of their kids to the teacher, and they can also use social media to identify themselves.
Parent and teacher interactions will be more open and transparent, with the teacher receiving a text message whenever there’s an interaction.
An additional section on curriculum will also be published: It will explain how parents are able to provide information about their children and how they can support them
