FACED by low pay, overwork, an increasingly ideological curriculum and a union seemingly hostile to children, many teachers appear to be voting with their feet and contemplating a move abroad.
Research by Revision Centre has revealed that the TES page for international jobs has a global monthly search volume of 210,000, and that ‘teaching abroad’ is searched around 1,300 times a month. But in June 2016, after theUK voted to leave the EU, that figure peaked to 6,700 – a 135 per cent increase.
Switzerland is Europe’s highest-paying country for teachers, with an average annual salary of £63,208. Ukraine pays the lowest, at only £2,694 a year.
So are teachers right to quit Britain? Let us know what you think.
