A teacher caught in the crossfire
Ursula Sarrazin was for decades a teacher at elementary schools in Berlin. Her last school was in the Westend district of the city, and here she fell victim to an unparalleled bullying campaign which, in the end, drove her into early retirement. Her eagerly awaited book is a shattering account of what she went through and, at the same time, a committed contribution to the present debate on schools and education. She candidly talks of the pressures teachers today are exposed to and the mistakes made each and every day by authorities, politicians, colleagues and parents in this, the most important aspect of society – the education of our children.
Ursula Sarrazin attacks the indifference shown by school authorities towards the gruelling life of teachers at school and rejects the shift of parental responsibility in the direction of the education system. However, the suggestions she also makes all have one objective – the lasting well-being of our children.
