Why teachers are quitting in droves
from By Patrick Gleeson
From Sept. 19:
Almost half of all K-12 teachers quit teaching within five years. Those who quit are disproportionately teachers in two of the most critical areas: English or science. Moreover, they quit soonest and most often in high-poverty and urban schools. But neither the federal government nor most state governments have convincingly answered the simple question of why this occurs.
