I really don't think they think farther than the next general election and getting themselves back into power. You've seen the clusterfuck that is the UK government at the moment. I really think it's a stretch of the most fertile imagination to judge them capable. I think teachers are being treated quite badly, sure, but it is the kids who suffer the most. They are compelled to be at school, and parents can be prosecuted if they're not. Teachers can at least choose where they physically want to be, albeit there are obvious knock-on effects of that, such as unemployment. This is really the only time to say 'won't somebody think of the children' unsarcastically.
