Nuffield Foundation publishes a report on teachers working hours

Teacher

The Nuffield Foundation has published a report into teachers working hours in England which finds that 1 in 4 teachers work more than 60 hours a week during term time. It further found that teachers in England worked 8 hours more on average per week, compared to teachers in similar industrialised OECD countries. Of interest, the report stipulates that policy initiatives aimed at reducing teachers working hours have so far failed and that more radical action is needed to tackle the issue.
