I don’t want to be resilient

I want teaching to be less stressful. I want teachers to feel that working their contracted hours is more than enough to be a good-enough teacher. I want Ofsted to disband. I want league tables to be consigned to the dust-bin of bad ideas (along with Universal Credit, the expression “moving forwards” and bananas).

Resilience implies that I’ve been ill and got better or bounced back from some adversity.

I’d much rather not get ill, or challenge that adversity head-on and make a change.

I don’t want to be resilient.
