In this conversation, Kevin and David discuss the reasons why teachers leave the education profession. They highlight several common themes, including the lack of substitutes and secretaries, the absence of work-life balance, low salaries, and inadequate health insurance. They also touch on the issue of violence in schools and the lack of support from administrators. The conversation emphasizes the need for administrators to fulfill their responsibilities and address these issues to retain teachers. The hosts express frustration with the lack of accurate data on teacher attrition and the media's failure to cover the retention crisis in education. Teachers need to start writing and sharing their stories to bring attention to the issues in education. Many teachers are already writing books and articles to shed light on their experiences. The lack of change in the education system is a common reason for teachers leaving the profession. Teachers often feel unsupported and blamed for problems that are beyond their control. The increasing violence, apathy, and lack of discipline in students make teaching more challenging. Teachers are often guilted and accused when they need to take time off for personal reasons. The system is systematically destroying itself, and teachers feel bitter about the lack of support and respect they receive.
