Long-term work stress may lead to burnout, which gravely affects teachers' physical and mental health, lowers the quality of their work, and, in turn, impairs their students' physical and mental health and development and imperils the sound development of education. This article analyzes the harm done by teacher burnout, defines its causes, and suggests preventive strategies.
