The Teacher Support Network (TSN) is an independent organisation which aims to provide both practical and emotional support to those working in the education sector. The site is regularly updated with news and links to relevant articles, and the organisation will shortly be marking its 130th anniversary by publishing a free online journal containing details of what's been going on in education through the decades since 1870. So those of you writing assignments looking at children's lives from a historical perspective would be advised to keep an eye on the site over the next few weeks!
So far so good, now for the bad news... The TSN has just published its latest quarterly report which has made headlines for the wrong reasons. According to the TSN, many teachers are struggling to survive on their incomes, with a significant increase in the number of education staff contacting the organisation for help and advice.
