Kevin Brennan MP, Labour's Shadow Schools Minister, commenting on the School Workforce Census said:

"Under David Cameron and Michael Gove, there are 6,000 fewer teachers in our schools today than at the General Election. There are also 3,000 fewer qualified teachers. 

"With pupil numbers increasing and fewer teachers, this Government is undermining classroom standards. 

"They have undermined professionals and allowed unqualified teachers into classrooms. Parents don't want bigger class sizes and children taught by teachers who aren't qualified."
