Sir Michael Wilshaw has warned of a brain drain of teachers trained in this country going to work overseas, especially as a result a worldwide boom in British-style international schools, and has called for financial incentives or ‘golden handcuffs’ to keep teachers trained here working here where they are needed most. 

Would this be a good idea?
