Research from NEA states that out of the approximately 200,000 new teachers hired every year that at least 11% have quit by summer, 30% have quit after 3 years and 45% after 5 years.
The number one reason for their departure is NOT salary but is the lack of administrative support and overall respect that they feel they receive as teachers. On average a teacher that has to be replaced costs the district approximately $11,000.
So, what can an administrator do to diminish the likelihood of losing teachers in their building and/or district?
