Fight or Flight: The Education, The Empowerment and Evolution of Our Teachers

Join Education Unplugged and Classroom Culture for a discussion on the importance of teacher support and retention in America's public Schools. Numerous studies have discussed the decline in education majors and the increase in turnover in America's schools. The Learning Policy Institute states that 90% of open teaching positions are created by teachers who leave the profession and although some are retiring, approximately two-thirds of teachers leave for other reasons, most due to dissatisfactions with teaching.  Education Unplugged and Classroom Culture, founded by professionals in education, seek to explore the factors that influence teachers’ departure (“flight”) from the classroom and help determine recommendations for teacher retention (“fight”).
