A new survey has shown school Principals are facing record levels of stress and burnout and rising parental violence and offensive behaviour, even before the COVID-19 outbreak caused havoc in the education system.

The Australian Principal Occupational Health Safety and Wellbeing Survey 2019, a joint project from Australian Catholic University and Deakin University, reveals 84 per cent of all principals and deputy/assistant principals have been subjected to ‘offensive behaviours’ by parents or students: another new, shameful national record, according to the research authors.
