Teachers: ‘There is no other option but to strike’ | Red Pepper
"'Teachers feel alienated and are suffering physical and mental illness,' she tells me candidly. 'It is [teaching] becoming a toxic place to work. Teachers are increasingly seen as collateral damage. No one expects to be in that position.' Her argument about toxicity in the workplace is further buttressed by her suggestion of the need for a study into employers' use of 'capability assessments' as a means to sack perfectly good teachers from their jobs."
