Dreaded change: the stress of constant turmoil in education

    "What is this life if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare."

    So wrote W.H.Davies in 1911. When was the last time a teacher had the time to stand and stare? In fact I have found throughout my career that I am running at full pelt often just to stand still. Education has been in a state of constant change since I can remember and there are so signs that this will arrest soon. The problem is that this is on top of all of the other demands associated with this profession and that as soon as you feel confident with a certain aspect of the job it goes and changes.

    I've been thinking about this in my blog HERE. I think it is important that we think about how the constant onslaught of change effects us and also how leaders recognise and support this.
