Drain­ing work­load forces teacher move

Matthew Beech: Good for this lady to take this ac­tion. I think some of us were un­der the im­pres­sion that teach­ers were trained and hired to teach, rather than be swamped with the del­uge of non­sen­si­cal PC stuff be­ing put to­gether by in­tel­lec­tu­als and aca­demics who don’t un­der­stand what child­hood is all about!

The Re­al­ity: My daugh­ter has just com­pleted her first year of teach­ing de­gree, she has de­cided its not worth the money and the stress and found her place­ments were neg­a­tive.

Bel­ladonna Took: I am sorry that it has come to strike ac­tion, but not sur­prised. I have vol­un­teered in schools for that last 15 years and have seen the stress lev­els ris­ing. Know­ing teach­ers, I know this ac­tion would not be taken lightly.
