Congratulations to the Fieldings on becoming Britain's first job-sharing husband and wife heads in the maintained sector (TES, January 19 ).
A truly co-educational system needs co-educational heads. In their school the most senior role models are right for both genders. Furthermore, their own children benefit from having both a mum an a dad who are at home for much of the time.
Job-sharing should become a common culture in order to save workers from gross overwork, to benefit organisations by a less stressed work-force, and to open the path to gender-neutral pay and responsibility.
