On Thursday, members of the National Education Union (NEU) are set to strike.
The Joint General Secretary of the NEU said striking teachers are taking action for a “high moral purpose”.
Kevin Courtney told Sky News: “We sincerely regret the disruption to children’s education and parents’ work and home lives.
“We think we’re taking action for a high moral purpose to try and get the Government to invest in this generation of children.”
He added that many children face disruption from understaffed schools or underqualified teachers because “the Government have let teacher recruitment and retention fall to such perilous levels”.
