    Default See all the English teachers are happy with their lot.

    We are constantly told here that Irish teachers are overpaid etc in comparison with England etc , but it seems that said teachers in England are very unhappy with their wages/terms/workload.

    No confidence in Gove, union says

    The two biggest teachers' unions are gathering for their annual conferences, where they will challenge the government over pay, Ofsted inspections and England's academy schools.

    The NUT and the NASUWT have already announced joint strike plans over pay, pensions and workload.

    There is also likely to be a no confidence vote in Education Secretary Michael Gove.

    The Department for Education has said it is "disappointed" by the strike.

    Mr Gove has written to the union leaders saying he would meet them for talks but that there would be no re-negotiation of planned changes to teachers' pay and pensions.

    I forgot: it's the beginning of teacher baiting season or the Easter Conference season, and it starts Monday next.

    Limit teaching to four hours a day, says union | Education | The Guardian

    Jesus wept. It's like they're doing their best to keep the Tories in.

    Teachers have called for the time they spend teaching pupils to be capped at 20 hours a week – four hours a day.

    The National Union of Teachers (NUT) passed a motion on Tuesday demanding a new working week of 20 hours' teaching time, up to 10 hours of lesson preparation and marking, and five hours of other duties, including time spent inputting data and at parents' evenings.

    Christopher Denson, a teacher from Coventry, said teachers' workload levels were totally unsustainable. "It's essential that we act to ensure that what's already NUT policy – a maximum working week of 35 hours – becomes a reality for teachers," he said.
