Just like other jobs? It’s the old fallacy of “you get 13 weeks, everyone else gets 4”. For clarity. Firstly, yes teachers get 13 weeks where they don’t have to teach lessons. But forgetting about the hours teachers work, I think we can say that most teachers work a minimum of 3 out of their 13 weeks ‘holiday’ every year, so now it’s 10 weeks vs 4. But it’s not, is it. In my past life, before teaching, I started on 4 weeks holiday, but went up to 5. This is common. My other half gets six. So now it’s 10 weeks vs 6. Only it’s not, is it. Because all of the bank holidays bar one (May Day) are during teacher’s holidays. So most people get this on top of their holiday allowance. They amount to almost 2 weeks in days off. So it’s 10 weeks vs 7 or 8. That’s before we take into account the extra hours. And before we take into account that every single day of those holidays is fixed and completely outside a teacher’s control. For clarity.
