Causes of teacher attrition have been related to educational trends, personal teacher concerns, institutional culture, low pay, educational background, and other factors just to name a few. Administration and school-based leadership should regularly seek out and analyze feedback data about trends in teaching efficacy and attrition among their own school communities to combat the growing teacher shortage. While common themes related to teacher job satisfaction and disinterest in the profession may transcend time, this paper will analyze the responses from current teachers and those that have recently left the profession to provide timely discussion topics for institutional improvement.
