Unions Turn Schoolkids Into Slugs, Say Tories

Work-to-rule orders keep British teachers from supervising students outside


The Conservatives have accused teaching unions of damaging school sport by banning teachers from supervising pupils outside of class time.

They claimed that the NASUWT, the biggest teaching union, had issued guidance to teachers saying: "Members should refuse to attend any meetings and activities outside school session times which are not on the school calendar and which are not within directed time."
