Teachers ‘moonlighting’ to supplement incomes

Up
to a fifth of teachers are forced to take a second job to boost pay according
to the latest official figures.

The
Office for National Statistics has found that as many as 84,000 teachers
‘moonlight’ during their time off to help supplement earnings.

According
to a report in The Times, half of those taking extra work were involved in
related jobs, such as private tuition, while the other moonlighters took casual
bar or factory roles.
