With the recent revelations about the stress teachers are working under (I have an Office for Standards in Education inspection next week) and the diminishing opportunites available for early retirement, I wonder whether anyone has done a study on the life expectancy of teachers?
I would like to know how this correlates with the figures for early retirement. For example, what is the average life expectancy for a teacher retiring at: 50; 55; 60 and 65?
If such figures are available, they would make frightening reading.
