<u>THIS</u> is my main concern with the pension proposals. I am prepared to accept that I have to pay more to get less but I don't know whether I'll be fit to do this job at 67. More importantly our children deserve teachers that are fit and capable of meeting the demands of a very stressful job. Yes, there are plenty of 'young' 67 year olds but have they spent 40 plus years in a classroom and if they have do they still have the same drive and motivation to 'perform' on a daily basis. Education will suffer if the continuity of children's education is disrupted by frequent absences due to illness.
