Sustainable Teaching: An Introduction

We often hear that teaching is in "crisis". We hear about shortages of teachers, schools so underfunded they are reducing opening times and making staff redundant. Yet, when we look at exam results, literacy rates or any of those markers we can see that generally as a society we are moving forward. At what cost? For all the right we are doing, there is wrong.

  • We are seeing a decline in the mental health of our nation

  • Record numbers of new teachers leaving the profession

  • School funding and budgets are unsustainable

Sustainable Teaching is all about working towards addressing the issues above in order to work within our means. Over the next few weeks I will share some examples of how we can continue to raise and sustain but also make strides in fixing the issues we face.
