working weeks should be cut from 52 to 45 hours, an official report by the
School Teachers Review Body says.
Government accepted the recommendation, after the report dismissed a case put
forward by unions that teachers’ hours should be limited to 35.
secretary Estelle Morris said it is important that teachers spend their time
teaching – not doing work that can be done by others.
Doug McAvoy, general secretary of the National Union of Teachers, said the
cutback on hours does not go far enough.
