from The Atlantic
At every stage, getting and keeping teachers in U.S. classrooms has become a challenge. Longtime teachers are retiring while mid-career and novice teachers are leaving for other pursuits. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 8 percent of the men and women teaching in public schools during the 2011-2012 school year left the profession the next year. And fewer young people are signing up to spend time in classrooms in the first place.
