Troll. Possibly not, but it does illustrate how many parents do not understand the role of a teacher in the schools' of today.
Whilst there are seemingly 13 or 14 weeks of holiday, plus the 6 inset day's for professional training, I get the impression that for the diligent teacher, much holiday time is taken up with lesson planning, marking and trying to work out what the DoE want them to do...
Personally speaking, teachers are already on the wrong foot by dint of them being called a 'Teacher'. It places too many expectations of them onto themselves, their students and parents and the public at large, i.e. for me it suggests that they are giving, or spoon-feeding information. I would suggest that they be called 'Facilitators'. Thereby, seen more as enabling their students to learn.
Possibly namby pamby job title stuff, but we are so obsessed with job titles and status. The possible downside to re-naming them could be the unions demanding a pay rise we can't afford.
