A union representing school principals is to ballot members in Northern Ireland about industrial action.
The National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) has said it has served legal notion of its intention to ballot members.
A spokesperson said: “The areas of dispute focus on workload, the inspection process, consultation and support for schools.”
NAHT(NI) President Geri Cameron said: “The past eight years have placed school leaders under intolerable strain. Continued industrial action by teaching staff during this time, coupled with a lack of a functioning executive for the past three years, have pushed NAHT(NI) members to their limit.
