The government's Education Bill sets out details of how it will help teachers raise standards in schools. It includes measures to root out bad behaviour, tackle underperformance and improve the way in which schools are held to account. In addition, the Bill will strengthen teachers’ powers to deal with bad behaviour. It also gives teachers the power to search for any items that disrupt learning, like mobile phones and video cameras, and gives schools the final say in expelling violent pupils and protects teachers from pupils making false allegations.
