I agree with your blog regarding teacher’s workload. I believe that teachers have a considerable amount of additional, unnecessary pressure such as; difficult parents, wages and Ofsted (Bubb and Earley 2004). Furthermore, 80% of teachers reported that their work load is ‘unmanageable’ (Niemtus 2016) therefore, leading to the burnout of teachers. Hakanen (2006) states that burnout can cause ineffective lessons thus little progress being made. Although I find your blog, on the whole, relevant and coherent with the research I am unsure of your reference to age.
