Then why do more than half of new teachers leave the profession within
Hell, my niece just graduated with a degree in education and her and several
of her classmates went and found a different job after just doing the
student teaching. For less money.
Kids, parents, discipline problems, disillusion, being the victim of
violence from either kids or their parents, growing weary of working
10-20 unpaid hours a week. Oh, and let's not forget that a lot of
well-qualified teachers can go into private employment for *more*
money, further reducing the talent pool for public school teachers.
That last statement would carry more weight with me if there were any
evidence that proved that paying teachers more improved educational
levels. I have never seen a study that proved this to be a factor.
Just amazed here that nobody else here thinks that 40k+, for less than a
full year, to start out in a routine BA position is horrible.
