Teachers in England are working longer hours than those in most other developed nations despite being badly paid and feeling “undervalued” by society, according to international research. A study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development found that just a third of teachers – 35 per cent – believe they are appreciated by the general public. Pamela Sammons, professor of education at Oxford University, comments on the study.
