It's Not up to Teachers to Tell Parents Their Child is Overweight
Since moving to North America I’ve realised just how overworked UK teachers and school administrators are compared to their transatlantic contemporaries.
My teacher friends back home in Blighty are exhausted. It seems that there’s not a week that doesn’t go by when they’re not handed duties that, actually, shouldn’t really be school issues at all.
British teachers are expected to be curriculum experts, assessment wizards, social workers, nurses, nutritionists, and lead a whole host of extracurricular activities while triple marking students work to appease overzealous Ofsted inspectors.
