That is the opinion of Sir Michael Wilshaw, head of Ofsted, who has dismissed claims from professionals in the education sector that they are under excessive levels of pressure as cuts in the sector continue to bite.
Since the onset of the financial crisis, a growing number of compensation claims have been made by teachers on the grounds of occupational anxiety.
However, during a speech delivered at Brighton College today (May 10th), Sir Michael said conditions in the teaching profession have improved markedly since he began his career in the mid-1980s.
"Stress is what I was under when I started as a head in 1985, in the context of widespread industrial action ... they are now, even with the cuts, in a better position than I was 26 years ago," he insisted.
