German Study on Burnout of Teachers

A recent study of the German "Aktionstar Bildung" on burnout of teachers showed alarming results: 30% of the surveyed teachers suffered from mental problems. The sick days almost doubled from 2000 to 2013.

Many teachers reported that they felt left alone with their problems.

The study recommends preventive measures that should start as early as possible, preferably already during the taecher training.
