Work Shouldn't Hurt - Creating a Pain Free Environment


Session Abstract

There are some situations in which work and pain go together, like playing football, boxing or doing mixed martial arts. However, this should not be the case in our schools. Pain should not be a part of educating students and certainly should not be the source of pain on a daily or long-tern basis. Just as schools are a smoke-free and drug-free environment, they should also be a pain-free environment. Too many paraprofessionals and educators have pain that is work-induced and is accepted as part of the job. Pain should not be part of the cost of education
