What do you do when the long hours you work cause conflict at home? Or when the stress of the job impacts your health? These are common dilemmas faced by many school principals.

The report draws on research conducted by the Australian Catholic University between 2011 and 2017, which gathered more than 4,500 responses from school principals all over Australia. It looks at hours of work, work demands vs. resources, offensive behaviour, and stress and emotional demands.
