In the past few weeks I have been contacted by two women teachers from northern NSW.
Both women are in their fifties and obviously very literate and intelligent.
They tell me that their work was well regarded till they were attacked.
I am wondering if there is a pattern here - are women teachers in their fifties more likely to be attacked at work?
Is this some kind of systemic economy drive?
Or are younger teachers simply easier to manipulate?
Do principals feel safer working with younger teachers?
Will there be less workplace bullying in Queensland schools when all of the intelligent, literate older teachers have retired or been driven out of work?
