Teachers knock off on time? Says who? The last I checked my colleagues brought their worksheets home for marking. We work on school holidays too.

While everyone is trying to aim for leadership positions, sometimes i wonder if the true winners are the people who do the bare minimum from GEO1 to GEO4. While maintaining their sanity and work life balance, they manage to bring home 6k salaries. One has to question if that extra 2k a month is worth all the trouble, extra work and politics.

While there are provisions for urgent leave, you cannot suddenly decide that you need a break and would want to take AL. This is why at my current stage of life, I want a job that offers me the flexibility of taking leave whenever I want.
depends where your teach . teaching in a jc is cognitively draining af. N we donít use textbooks for whatever reasons. all JCs produce material in house, n the amt of editing, syncronising across chapters is insane.

It appears that your perspective on teaching may lack depth and insight into the multifaceted responsibilities that educators undertake. Being a proficient educator entails far more than a cursory execution of duties solely within the confines of a classroom. To dismiss the significance of tasks such as grading, student counseling, parental communication, exam preparation, and resource development as mere "extra work" reflects a limited understanding of the profession. Teachers invest considerable time and effort beyond standard hours to ensure a holistic and enriching educational experience for their students, extending well beyond the confines of traditional pedagogy. Therefore, it is essential to recognize and appreciate the comprehensive scope of a teacher's role before making assertions regarding their efficiency or dedication.

That is why the HOT vs HOD terms were invented

So, if a teacher is able complete all during officer time vs someone who constantly take home work, the latter is better? It really depends on situation.
