From the Dept. of the Obvious: Half of New Teachers Quit?

Posted by on May 15, 2006

I found this article the other day, and I must say I wasn’t surprised by it. Apparently, research shows that half of those who enter the teaching profession end up quitting. In other breaking news, when it rains, things get wet.

The article points out that many teachers quit because of the lack of pay. My father argues this point with me often and points out how great my salary really is. He is such a gifted communicator that I often find myself believing him, smiling with him as I agree that I really am well paid. Then, once a month, I get a stub that shows me how much has been deposited into my account, and at that point, I am reminded that my father, a wise man indeed, doesn’t know everything.

Maybe I should just go paint signs.
