Not enough lessons at secondary schools

The majority of secondary schools are failing to provide pupils with the regulation 1,040 hours of teaching a year, according to a draft report by the schools inspectorate.

The situation is so dire at one in eight schools that urgent action is needed, the report, which has been leaked to NOS tv, says.
While one in five schools do offer enough lessons, absenteeism, teacher shortages and meetings usually mean the target is not met.
