Teaching Is Stressful!

"...Perhaps one of the clearest signals of job dissatisfaction had to do with the fact that more than half - 52 percent - of teachers surveyed said their jobs prevented them from making a lot of decisions on their own. Research has shown that when workers have autonomy, job satisfaction rises." - The Washington Post, 2015
