I NOTE with concern that teachers are working longer hours than ever. Perhaps one reason, at least for 124 of them, is because they are required to attend Department for Education and Employment fous groups (TES, August 4, 11) where they have been able to explain to researchers the problems associated with a long-hours culture.
