A teaching union in Guernsey says there has been a significant drop in teachers' morale and job satisfaction along with widespread concern about the States' plans for education.
A survey by the NASUWT says more than half of teachers who took part in its survey said they have considered leaving the profession.
The survey also found a drop in the number of teachers saying they felt valued, respected and resourced to do their job effectively.
Other findings from the survey show:
- 69% said they had seriously thought about leaving their job in the last 12 months, up from 64% in 2016
- 55% had seriously considered leaving teaching altogether, which is broadly similar to 2016.
- 40% stated that they had seriously considered leaving the island for another teaching job.
- 82% said their workload had either increased or significantly increased over the last 12 months.
- 88% thought the States did not have the right approach to improving education, compared to 61% in 2016.
