Prospective teachers in England will face tougher tests in English and maths from next year before they are allowed to start training in the profession.
ITV News asked for your thoughts on these changes on Facebook. Here are some of the responses.
That's ok if they are teaching Maths and English, but does a geography teacher really need to know Pythagoras Theorem?
There is no need to make this tougher for teachers at all. A teacher is a professional after acquiring their degree.
I have always wanted to be a teacher and I got to level 4 and stepped off as knew it would not be fair on the children even if I only wanted to teach 3-5 year olds.
I could have made it but I think it's only fair the standard should be higher. I agree with the changes.
