The French chose an adage: “the more “change, the more is the same”; The more things change, the more they stay the same. If this is the case, policy makers should be aware of the basis of evidence of these allegations. Thus, Hutchings et al. (2009) found no evidence that the way schools reorganized their staff in response to the national agreement had an impact on the achievement. Few would find the fault of Nick Clegg`s goal of “giving our teachers more time to do what they do best: create and plan the best lessons and experiences for our children.” But are new reforms induced by the Workload Challenge aimed at reducing teachers` working hours or helping them cope with their workload in the hours they work? Or both. Identifying problems will be easier than identifying proven and scalable solutions. But if the evidence is anything, we need smarter solutions than those used in response to the national agreement if we are to ensure a lasting impact. Efforts to reduce teacher workloads seem to sooner or later succumb to the law that abhors the emptiness of nature. Despite attempts to dispel myths about the bureaucratic requirements of Ofsted`s inspection, it is likely that any work that will be removed from the teacher workload in the future will be replaced by work that deals with other concerns that may seem more peripheral at this time: integration into major curriculum changes; Adapting to the new Progress 8 measures; and the development of sound evaluation techniques as an alternative to levels.

The latest figures from 2013 show that today, primary teachers work an average of 59.3 hours per week and secondary teachers 55.7 hours per week (55.2 hours for schools and schools). Principals work more than 60 hours a week. One point that needs to be clarified is whether this olive branch to Mr. Clegg`s profession – a man who is now synonymous with “there is a free lunch” – should at some point go hand in hand with the expectation that efforts to reduce teacher workload will have a positive impact on standards? For a few years between 1994 and 2003, the data is missing. Data from the past 20 years show that between 1994 and 2010, the average working time of primary school teachers ranged from 51.2 hours on average (48.8 hours to 52.8 hours) and 49.9 hours for secondary school teachers (48.7 hours to 51.3 hours). So says Nick Clegg, whose overall goal is to apply to the public sector principles that slow down (as he claims) the “train of bureaucracy” in the business world. A teacher-led body, reports the Guardian, “will work with Ofsted on how to implement a series of reforms on the workload of [teachers].
