ATL spokesman says changes to school day would affect all society

The question of how to structure the school day isn't clear cut

That's according to Andrew Shipley, a local spokesman for the Association of Teachers and Lecturers.

UK Education Secretary Michael Gove wants to see a re-structuring of the school day and the academic year.

The Department of Education and Children on the Island is now going to carry out a study to look into the issue.

However, Mr Shipley says his members would want to see clear evidence before any change was made, as such a change would effect all of society
