Teachers who drink together, achieve together ?

28 November 2017

Teachers going to the pub on a Friday for a drink is a classic tradition often referenced in films and TV series about the profession. But does it still happen? We asked and found…

More than 50% of teachers said they had not visited a pub with colleagues at all so far this year

However, look at this!

Colleagues in Outstanding schools were more likely to go for a drink than those in other schools, and inadequate school teachers are the least likely of all!

Causation or correlation? Best get a round in to check… ?

[ On a serious note: We’re interested in how this might be affected by age, gender, and a few other characteristics that we are asking about in the coming week, but we don’t have up-to-date information on these to give you the results…. yet. Keep an eye out].
