Even for teachers it's bad!

Teachers end up give students loads of homework, but when they get home they're the ones who spend hours, even days grading papers, " The workload becomes more manageable, but the hardest and, most stressful and distressing part of the job is grading students' work. It's the part of the job that, induces the greatest uncertainty, discomfort, and angst." Author Jon Tierny writes in his artical 'Why Teachers Secretly Hate Grading Papers.'
