Teachers Are Stressed, And That Should Stress Us All – NPR

It is well-known that being a teacher is one of the most important job. So the question this is raised as to why teaching is one of the most stressful careers. This is costing the taxpayers millions are high teacher turnover is not good for anyone. Something needs to be done about this problem.

Key Takeaways:

  • A new report out this month pulls together some stark numbers on this: Forty-six percent of teachers say they feel high daily stress. That’s on par with nurses and physicians.
  • And roughly half of teachers agree with this statement: “The stress and disappointments involved in teaching at this school aren’t really worth it.”
  • Between 30 and 40 percent of teachers leave the profession in their first five years. That turnover, costs schools — and taxpayers — billions of dollars a year, while research (like this and this) suggests teacher burnout hurts student achievement, too.

“”Between 30 and 40 percent of teachers leave the profession in their first five years,” says Mark Greenberg, a professor of human development and psychology at Penn State.”
