Description - Breakdown by John Cosgrove
Between 1989 and 1999 half the teachers in England and Wales left their posts. By the late 1990s more than 6000 teachers a year were retiring early on grounds of ill health. In recent years hardly a school in the country has not lost at least one teacher because of a "nervous breakdown". This text looks at what is happening in teaching. It examines why breakdowns have become so common, what it means to suffer a breakdown, and the consequences of this epidemic for schools and children. It suggests what teachers can do to help themselves, what schools should do to help their staff and the ways in which the local authorities can offer practical support.
