Motion text

That this House endorses the key objective of the School Teachers' Review Body in its Report of May 2002, namely the reduction of teachers' workload in order to restore morale, improve teacher retention and supply and make possible further improvements in standards; and calls on the Government in consultation with the representatives of the teachers and employers to take swift action and to allocate sufficient funds to achieve these objectives, beginning with the removal from teachers of tasks which are unconnected with teaching and learning.
