    One of the reasons my dad gave for quitting teaching when he did, is that he felt like he was watching his colleagues turn old and grey before their time, and he didn't want to go the same way. I, on the other hand, think that teachers are generally remarkably youthful looking (considering the stress of the job). Poverty, smoking, bad diet and chronic ill health tend to age people much faster than just about anything else.

    Ah but new reforms have overcome this problem... instead, any teacher of long service is now driven out on capability... so saving the younger teachers the pain of seeing 'ageing'.

    Teaching has become a bit like the film "Logan's run". You get too old and your culled. Their life before being bumped off seems preferable to teaching though...
