    Plus, the people involved are described as 'Teaching Assistants'. To my horror, I discovered last week that my friend is paid just £8.70 per hour as a teaching assistant (despite her qualified teacher status), is not paid to attend daily meetings nor during school holidays.
    I'm sure she would get a second job if she weren't also a carer for a disabled child.

    This is so unfair, if you're female you face being fired for having a second job, but if you're a bloke you're fine. How is that fair? If the school knew prior to her appointment they shouldn't have fired her. It's not like she was a glamour model, which i could have understood being inappropriate when working with children but she's an underwear model, something totally different. Since teaching doesn't pay as well as the government would like to you to believe they do i can totally understand why some teacher may take on second jobs. As long as they're not hurting anyone i don't think it should matter what they're doing.
