It can be quite bad, but that doesn't make it unique. Other professions may have similar levels of burn-out, but they're not as easy to track.

I think what teaching shares with other "caring" professions is that it's soul-tiring. I mean that you are in contact with people who have really serious shit going on in their lives, like abuse at home, learning difficulties, etc. And you can't fix it.
