Do you back government's school reform plans?
Plans to overhaul the way teachers are trained in England and how schools are funded will be set out later as part of the government's education White Paper. How would these reforms affect you?
Education Secretary Michael Gove said he wanted to restore "the prestige, the esteem, the importance of teaching". But the Labour Party has accused Mr Gove of creating a competitive and segregated system.
As part of the plans, former troops will be offered sponsorship to retrain as teachers, and there will be new aptitude tests for the profession.
Are schools failing? What can be done to improve standards of schooling? Would you retrain as a teacher?
