Teaching or running the economy?

Sir Mervyn King marks departure by going for a song on Desert Island Discs

Discussing his time in the classroom, he said: "I would come back at five o'clock in the afternoon and I'd have to lie down even at the age of 18 and sleep for an hour to recover from the exertions of teaching because the children were so lively and enthusiastic. I started a cricket team there, but the sheer energy you had to put in managing the classroom, helping the children in playground or at lunchtime, it was emotionally and physically draining."
