Principals in Loudon County, Va., elementary schools will be surveyed to reveal whether they believe teachers are overworked, after concerns were raised about the amount of planning time teachers receive. "A lot of time that supposedly could be used for planning, is it being taken away by principals who deem it important to do other things?" asked Personnel Services Committee Chairman Tom Marshall. "Teachers do have time during the day, but in such small increments that it's meaningless for any kind of planning."
