Low morale

A STUDY has revealed that nearly 75 per cent of teachers in Portugal would change their profession if they had the choice.

The study, which was carried out on 1,100 teachers, also revealed that 81 per cent of them would ask for early retirement if they could, even if they were penalised.

The Observatório da Avaliação de Desempenho, a body created by the national federation of teachers and the institute of education, carried out the survey between November and December this year.
