Why I Left Teaching

On my personal blog, I recently wrote about some of the problems with blogging and Facebook - about the way that they give the illusion of change and community, while in fact leaving us isolated and unable to change. To write that piece I had to re-read the very first blog posts I wrote, around two years ago, about my own struggles with stress and the decision to leave education. Sadly, they feel as current today as they did then:

The bogeyman for whom we blame all of our problems may have changed, but the experience of demoralisation and exhaustion is one I still hear today.
