Teachers lack of manager support

Teachers are suffering from stress because of lack of support from superiors, according to NUT general secretary Doug McAvoy.

McAvoy made the comment in response to the case of a 45-year-old Shropshire teacher who received £300,000 in compensation after suffering a stress-related nervous breakdown.

McAvoy said, “For too many teachers around the country this lack of care is an increasing part of our daily lives.”
