A long list of anxieties - around school budget cuts, bullying, coarse

political discourse and the shaky status of immigrant students - is taking a

toll on teachers, a new survey shows, with more educators now saying their

mental health is suffering than just two years earlier.

 

More than half of the educators point out their mental health is an issue:

58% said their mental health was "not good" for seven or more of the

previous 30 days. A similar survey in 2015 found just 34% of respondents

felt the same.
