The United States is experiencing trends of dramatic employee turnover in our nation’s schools. Current and future decisions to leave the field of education affect the quality of our PreK-12 education and the next generations of learners, educators, and school leaders. Physical and verbal violence directed against educators may be exacerbating reports of high stress, transfers and leaving the profession.
Join the American Psychological Association to hear more about the viewpoints and concerns of school personnel across the country including 9,370 teachers, 860 administrators, 1,499 school psychologists and social workers (934 psychologists, 526 social workers, and 39 other), and 3,237 other school staff members. We will engage the audience with recommendations based on these outcomes for what can be done to prevent and address this trend.
