Britain's best headteacher just gave Rishi Sunak a lesson that the PM should listen to...

Britain's strictest headteacher has delivered a piece of advice to the Prime Minister as only a teacher can.

In a brilliant social post, Katherine Birbalsingh wrote: "Rishi Sunak isn’t insane.

"He just doesn’t know what he believes in.

"So various people around him pull him in different directions.

"He has no iron core to steady him.

"Everything sounds like a clever idea. Leaders need to know when to say NO."

The head teacher of Michaela Community School in Brent, north-west London was commenting in reply to a fellow social media user who called the Prime Minister insane for his latest education policy.

She explained brilliantly how 'leaders need to know when to say no' in order to lead the country.

It came as part of a discussion on the latest Tory policy, announced by Sunak, to return National Service to Britain.

Birbalsingh added that Sunak was using the military policy to cover up changing the way maths is taught in the UK.

Birbalsingh added: "There is little point in discussing details of a Conservative policy that won’t be taken up by Labour.

"The distraction of military service means we don’t notice Sunak’s idiotic ‘maths to 18’ Advanced British Standard - quietly advancing in the background.

"Headteachers! Watch out!"

Sunak has vowed to bring back the mandatory National Service scheme where teenagers could choose between military and volunteering work as early as September 2025.

Teens will have to enrol in the military for 12 months – or spend one weekend each month volunteering in their community.

A new Royal Commission will design the programme, with a pilot scheme opening for applications in September 2025, ahead of a national rollout by 2029.
