Excessive workload drives more teachers to become private tutors, study shows

The TES is reporting that more teachers are becoming private tutors…

Almost half of those teachers who make the switch blame the long hours they were asked to work, the research suggests

Almost half of those who resign to become tutors do so because of the hours that they have to work, the study suggests.
