Sir: So Gillian Shephard is not only going to stop teachers taking early retirement, she is going to punish the sick and reduce them to poverty. She writes: "Teachers are either too ill to teach or they are not." What nonsense! There are many who are not fit enough for full-time work but are able and willing to do some part-time teaching. But no. Teach for one hour and your meagre pension is stopped.
