Speaking after the vote of no confidence in Education Secretary Michael Gove and Ofsted Chief Inspector Sir Michael Wilshaw was passed, ATL general secretary Mary Bousted said:
Michael Gove and Sir Michael Wilshaw are like Blood Brothers, with a pact to suck the life and hope out of our education system and the teachers who work within it.
Dr Bousted said teachers feel demoralised and "do not see the reality of Mr Gove and Sir Michael's criticism and constant denigration in the work that they do".
"When you've tried your hardest and you keep being ignored, then, in the end, you lose confidence and that's what conference has overwhelmingly said today."
