Teachers Under Pressure

Teachers Under Pressure

September 2008 | 136 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
What is it really like to be a teacher in today's demanding classrooms?

The authors of this book spoke to teachers, parents and students in the UK, Asia, America and Australia and had some shocking responses to their questions. By looking at highly topical issues within teaching, such as teacher stress and teacher workload, they uncover an often bleak picture where individuals are frequently stretched to breaking point as they endeavour to 'make a difference'.

Issues examined include:

" the frustrations facing those trying to make inclusive education work in practice

" the effects of constantly changing policies on the staff required to implement them

" the loss of status the teaching profession has experienced

" why so many are choosing to leave the job

" what happens to those who stay and fight

This fascinating read will be of interest to anyone involved in teaching, school leadership and educational policy.
