At least 3,482 of Duval’s more than 8,000 teachers have less than five years’ experience, said Terrie Brady, Duval Teachers United president. She said she is encouraged by the district’s hiring progress but Duval is suffering, like most other districts, from Baby Boomers reaching retirement.
See we are doing much better than the nation they are at 16 percent and we're way down at 15 percent.
Also I hope that wasn't Terrie Brady's complete quote. She knows there are schools that are horrible places to work in, where admins act like bullies and dictators who literally run good teachers out of the district, she cannot keep covering for the district.
The super may not care that one in six teachers left this year but I do and unlike the super I also know that the district will never meet its potential as long as morale is as poor as it is. The bottom line is we cannot be successful as long as we don't support and continue to marginalize our teachers.
