My Life as a Teacher: Work Series Part 3 (2016)

Matthew has been a teacher for 37 years and will be retiring next summer. He loves teaching and knows he will miss it as a job. And will miss being a NUT activist. 

But while he is saddened by the fact that so many teachers are leaving the classroom, he is hardly surprised. “Grade grind…Fordism…The obsession with classroom planning… the academisation process…loss of control by teachers.”

This is Part 3 in a 4-part series on work in the UK from Well Red Films
