Kesa sent me this article about how the exodus of teachers out of the profession isn't really about "burnout".
People get into teaching for moral reasons, and they are leaving for moral reasons.
Teachers are demoralized, and their departure from the profession is often an act of a conscientious objection, not of personal burnout.
Focusing on "burnout" puts the onus on individuals rather than the systemic conditions that actually need attention.
@edsu If only the teachers did _enough_ self-care or the right _kind_ of self-care, then they wouldn’t suffer from “burnout” and they could continue to be stubbornly generous automatons…
This is a mastodon instance for social justice activists, LGBTQIA+ people, and activists in general
