I came across this little statistic today.

65%

Proportion
of former public school teachers who say they’re better able to balance
work and life now that they’re working outside the education field.

SOURCE: U.S. Department of Education; National Center for Education Statistics Teacher Follow-up Survey.

 

 

What do you think about that?



I found it reading an article called Why teachers quit by Kimberley Palmer in Teacher Magazine.
