“… These ‘stories’ made me both sad and angry for I could empathise with their dialogues having experienced some of them myself at times during a teaching career spanning two decades. However, I’m optimistic for the future because, for once, someone like Dr Helen Woodley has been brave enough to base her excellent research on a subject that for too long has been overlooked and marginalised except on social media.” (Greta K. Lyons)

This critically-important action research is an investigation into the effect of working in toxic schools on teacher mental health and wellbeing. Five teachers share their experiences of working in toxic schools across a variety of settings. Strategies for coping in such schools are shared, including a wider look at how school culture can be developed to better support staff.

“Toxic Schools takes what others might wish to hide away and brings it centre stage. It shines a bright light on how some schools create and sustain cultures that damage individual teachers and the profession as a whole. It is a call-out which we all need to hear. And it is also a call to arms. Reading this book, reflecting on its content and discussing the insights helps us to generate a language and a conceptual framework for change. Schools can change for the better from the inside out, and this book might be a major contribution to creating that change.” (Professor Rachel Lofthouse, Professor of Teacher Education, Founder of CollectivEd.)
