Email Teaching Scheme Under Fire
Nov 09, 2004
Sign of the times. "Teachers' unions today attacked a plan that would see staff answering email queries from their GCSE pupils outside school hours." They are concerned not only about the requirment that teachers work outside school hours but also about potentially abusive emails sent to teachers' homes. Both concerns are valid and could easily have been predicted prior to the proposal. Replacing study leave with online contact hours? Dumb idea.
