Are teachers working themselves into the ground because it’s simply required?
Teachers are required to give everything they have got, and then some more in their pursuit of meeting the expectations of their jobs.
Several teacher-authors have been writing articles on their own personal experiences and the struggle they are up against. Teachers are having to resort to spending their own money on sourcing and buying resources as well as working throughout most of their holidays to ensure they keep up with expectations.
Teachers, especially new to the profession are giving everything and are burning out. The expectations set on them are unrealistic and they lack the support and time to deliver what they are required too.
