BRITISH TEACHERS SHOULD RELAX LIKE FRENCH, SAYS SURVEY

A survey conducted among 480 primary and secondary teachers under a county council in the south of England and 320 teachers in France has found that British teachers should learn to relax, reports the Times (p6).

The survey found that anxiety and dissatisfaction levels were far higher in Britain and health was worse.

The British teachers suffered from anxiety, fatigue, loss of sleep, lack of sex drive and depression. On all these the French scored better.

The finding comes as the government tries to clamp down on early retirement, and as education secretary Gillian Shephard accuses early retiring teachers of malingering.
