https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-48554814 About time this hit the headlines though I think the EIS has been a bit conservative with their 20 hr aspiration which means in effect that nothing will happen. I would have went with the OECD average of 17 hrs contact time demonstrating how grossly overworked we are compared to other industrialised nations who outperform us in terms of outcomes despite lower contact times. Employers will moan that they can't afford it, however many LAs already close their schools at Friday lunchtimes to cut costs. Why not go the whole hog and simply shut up shop on Fridays (home study day for pupils, prep day for staff), move to a 4 day teaching week, with 4 hours teaching each day for 16hrs contact time, now that's something to get excited about. To be honest, it wouldn't surprise me if outcomes improved.
