Classrooms designed to hold 24 students routinely hold 34—at worst, I've seen Add to this the absurdity of budgets maxing out at the basics of pens and photocopying, and it leaves children going without access to essential sets of text or fighting over the one glue stick between ten of them. This is coming from someone who teaches in a previously well-funded Academy in London. Fuck if I know what's happening out in the wilds of Sunderland or Hull. The NHS may be grabbing the headlines for a state service that's falling apart, but ours isn't far behind, and many of us are terrified about what the future holds.
With all of the above comes a great deal of stress. As a teacher, your day is composed of several hour-long performances—performances you're expecting your audience to disrupt, heckle, or disengage from. As such, a touch of stage fright is only natural. One only has to spend a five-minute spell in the staff bathrooms—a staccato mess of rips, groans, and gasps—to understand the physical impact this is having on teachers. While shitters whirr and struggle but ultimately cope with nervously expelled effluvia, our brains and faces remain stained with the mental torment of it all.
It is not uncommon to see a newly qualified teacher staring into the middle distance like a broken soldier out of Full Metal Jacket. Nor is it rare to see heads of faculty weeping into a freshly printed sheet of data, the realization that their job is now on the line starkly wrought across their face.
The staff room is a place of recuperation and consolation from the chaos of it all. When a fellow teacher sobs brokenly that they don't know how they're going to do it, your responsibility is to get them back in the game. Equally, if your colleague's behavior more closely matches the famous meltdown in Network— exclaiming that they're "mad as hell and not going to take it anymore!
As a rule of thumb, most teachers will experience at least one such meltdown a year.

I had to move within half an hour of the jail, which was in Fort Edward, New York, because they call you in for random urine tests and stuff. So I basically had to stop my life for 14 months. I did or something hours of community service—cleaning the bathrooms and toilets at the Washington County fairgrounds, putting up fences, parking cars, breaking rocks—and court-ordered outpatient [treatment], and drug-court meetings.
I just had to move up there and spent 14 months just getting sober and complying with the rules. If you miss a meeting, they put you in jail for 48 hours. Which happened to me—I had to go to jail a couple of times. This is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Which I think is something that has to happen.
