The government has brought out this document regarding teachers' complaints that their job now involves too much data collection and ohehr paperwork.

Could this be a breakthrough that will leave teachers free to teach or is it just window-dressing? What do our ex-teachers here on gransnet think?

Window dressing.
That Education Endowment Foundation won't last above two- years or until direct funding runs out whichever comes sooner.

Agree, Retiredguy - not that we are cynical or anything.....

So a government response to teacher workload gives them another 23 pages to read.
