More than half of U.S. teachers are considering leaving the profession: Survey
The U.S. teachers shortage could be getting worse.
A March 2022 survey from the National Education Association (NEA) showed that more than half of teachers (55%) intend to leave the profession earlier than they planned, and that was before the elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
“90% of teachers are saying they’re really thinking about what happened in Uvalde and what that means for them,” American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said on Yahoo Finance Live (video above). “It doesn’t mean they’re going to leave. It doesn’t mean they’re going to stay. But the impact has been huge across the country.”
