    Would be very interested in what you intend to do with the results and how big a response you receive, which could be considered 'significant' in statistical terms.

    I hope to publish an academic paper on the individual and collective dimensions of teachers leaving their jobs. I will also try to make results available in other formats. If you send me your email address I will keep you in the loop m.d.bergfeld@qmul.ac.uk

    Dear Lara,

    This is an open question so far. That's why I have been posting this survey up online as well as conducting in-depth interviews with teachers who have left their profession.

    Teachers vote 'with their feet' because they are loaded with responsibilities (over-loaded really) - responsibilities that are euphemistically called 'accountability' - notice here the singular noun, which really should plural. You find yourself accountable for everything from little Johnny's lost sock, to why didn't our Whitney get all her GCSEs with A*. 'Aspirations' have turned into unreasonable 'expectations' ...and woe betide the teacher who hasn't convinced all and sundry that the have moved heaven and earth to 'make it happen guys'.

    Responsibility with zero power is awful, it's no wonder that you can hear the marching of teachers' boots on the move.
