Recent research by the Teachers Health Fund, the national private health insurance provider for those that work in the education industry including teachers and their families, shows that many Queensland teachers feel sick, tired and stressed.
In the study, Queensland teachers reported that they were concerned about stress, with 84% reporting much or slightly higher levels of stress than most other professions.
The three main causes of stress for Queensland teachers were identified as:
- Increased bureaucracy and red tape
- Having to work a lot of additional hours
- Classroom sizes
While I believe this situation is not likely to change in the immediate future, what this study does reveal is that teachers need to start taking more control of their health and wellbeing.
