Teacher workloads have blown out in recent decades, and many teachers are now too stretched to do everything we ask of them.
A Grattan Institute survey of 5,442 Australian teachers and school leaders, conducted for this report, found more than 90 per cent of teachers say they don’t have enough time to prepare effectively for classroom teaching – the core of their job.
Teachers report feeling overwhelmed by everything they are expected to achieve. And worryingly, many school leaders feel powerless to help them.
The survey results amount to a cry for help from the teachers of Australia. If governments don’t hear this cry and act on it, they will be letting down our children. [website]
