It is disconcerting, to say the least, to note the attrition rate among teachers today. Teachers are the cornerstone of the academic world and yet it is becoming more and more difficult to retain them in the school system. Teaching in itself is such a demanding profession and has a great deal of responsibility attached.
It is appalling to note that 46% of newly qualified teachers in USA don’t last even five years. In urban areas this figures crosses the 50% mark. And it is an accepted fact that almost 90% of teachers hired are replacing teachers who have quit and not retired.
