State of our Schools Survey

The responses to the State of our Schools survey is out and I’m afraid it does not make for good reading. The findings indicated that:

“CLASSROOM sizes and behaviour-management issues are driving teachers out of the workforce.”

“Almost three quarters of Queensland teachers say it is difficult to retain staff because morale is so low.”

More than 40per cent of new ACT teachers said they would probably quit within 10 years.

What is going on in our profession?  Surely the strain and stress that teachers are complaining about is an issue worth taking extremely seriously.  I bet the findings of this survey will disappear along with the 40 per cent of ACT teachers.
