Our teachers deserve more than thanks

These days, teachers do more than ever. Teachers now work 55 hours a week or more to keep up with higher student needs and constant curriculum changes.

But teachers’ salaries haven’t kept pace. In fact, they’ve fallen way behind other professions.

1 in 8 teachers now leave the profession within 6 years because of the pay and workload pressures.

There are more than 1,000 full-time teaching positions unfilled in NSW, and it’s harder than ever to recruit talented people to become teachers.

That’s why the NSW Teachers Federation is asking for a much needed pay rise. Because without great teachers, our kids don’t get a great education.
