England's two biggest teaching unions NASUWT and the National Union of Teachers, who organised today's strike, have called for "a change in the government's attitude to education".
The overwhelming majority of teachers in four regions will be on strike today.
Strike action is a last resort, teachers have been left with no choice but to demonstrate their anger and frustration in the face of their genuine concerns being dismissed and trivialised.
No teacher takes strike action lightly but the intransigence of this Education Sectary has left teachers with no choice.
We cannot stand by and watch our profession be systematically attacked and undermined. There needs to be a change in the Government's attitude to teachers and education.
Hundreds of schools are to close tomorrow as teachers strike in a long running row over over pay, pensions and workload.
Teachers across the East Midlands will be out on strike tomorrow forcing the closure of many schools.
