Teachers in Britain are poorly paid. With the cost of commuting, accommodation and utilities as high as it is, we live hand to mouth.
We are a group of ten newly or recently qualified teachers. We all work between fifty and sixty hours a week. Newly qualified teachers are paid £23,720.00. Don't work out the hourly rate - it's terrifying.
We all want to be teachers. The fact is, though, that we can't carry on. Teachers are leaving the profession in droves and one reason is that many of us are one big bill away from insolvency. Help us to continue. Without your help, we cannot.
