Morale among British teachers has declined dramatically as they do not trust the government’s education policies, according to a recent survey.
The survey by YouGov for National Union of Teachers (NUT) indicated that spirits in the profession have dangerously declined in recent months.
According to the study, more than half of British teachers -about 55 percent- described their morale as low or very low.
The survey which was conducted online last month revealed that about 77 percent of teachers considered the government policies on education as “negative”.
Many British teachers are unconvinced by Education Secretary Michael Gove’s reforms, saying that ministers are taking education in the wrong direction.
"This survey paints a very sorry picture and is a damning indictment of coalition government policies. Michael Gove has been allowed to rush through educational reforms and his academies and free schools projects based on little or no evidence,” the NUT General Secretary Christine Blower said.
