Head teachers have called for pay levels for school staff and academy bosses in England to be fairer in order to stop massive pay gaps.
According to the BBC, this comes after it was revealed that the chief executive of the Harris Federation was the first in the education sector to earn £5000,000.
The Department for Education has written to 29 trusts about high pay in the past, however, the number of academy trusts called on explain pay levels were significantly small.
Bigger trusts, such as the Harris Federation, have been exempt from questioning over how much is paid to bosses and managers.
According to NAHT leader Paul Whiteman, there needs to be a national framework for state school salaries, with clear guidelines on what pay is acceptable.
He said: "This would protect lower-paid workers, and avoid gaps opening up between the lowest and highest paid people in any school, which are hard to justify in the public sector.”
