Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has helped to foreground mental health and wellbeing in education, underlining the need for a more caring education which addresses the social and emotional needs of students. It is becoming more evident than ever before, however, that educators cannot effectively support the social and wellbeing of students, unless their own social and emotional needs are addressed as well. As a result of the increasing evidence on the relationship between students’ and staff’s wellbeing, more attention is being given to the wellbeing of school staff as a prerequisite for quality education. In the first paper in this edition, Savage and Woloshyn (Canada) investigated the well-being, perceived stress, and use of coping strategies amongst 686 K-12 educators’ and school staff in Canada. They found that all educators regardless of their grade or position reported overall lower scores of wellbeing and higher levels of perceived stress when compared to the general population. Maladaptive coping strategies were related to poorer wellbeing and higher levels of stress.
