More teachers are taking early retirement

Latest figures released by the Department for Education have revealed that almost 9,000 state school teachers took early retirement last year.

In total, 8,880 state school teachers retired early in the school year 2010-11. According to previously released figures, the latest numbers are the highest number of early retirements in the past 13 years.

The National Union of Teachers suggested that "excessive workload, a restrictive curriculum" and worries over Ofsted inspections were to blame for the rise.
