– 34,910 teachers left the profession in 2016, up from 22,000 in 2011.
– 54 hours is the average number of hours worked by a classroom teacher each week.
– 75% of UK teachers have reported symptoms of stress, including depression, anxiety and panic attacks.
These are the damning statistics reported by the Observer, which I highlighted when questioning the Minister of State for School Standards in the Education Committee session.
This government is not doing enough to support the teaching workforce, and is driving the joy and passion out of the profession.
