Learn why today’s best teachers are leaving—from the teachers themselves

More talented teachers are leaving the profession than ever before. Drawing on in-depth interviews, Farber presents an in-the-trenches view of the classroom exodus and how schools can turn the tide, focusing on:

  • Challenges to teacher endurance, including tight budgets, difficult parents, unsafe schools, inadequate pay, and lack of respect
  • Strategies veteran teachers use to make sure the joys of teaching outweigh the frustrations
  • Success stories from individual schools and districts that have found solutions to these challenges 
  • Recommendations for creating a school environment that fosters teacher retention
