What makes a teacher stay teaching when everything goes wrong? What is the breaking point to make them want to quit? Almost everyday there is another sad story of a teacher who says good-bye to their students and closes the classroom door for the last time.

How many school districts care enough about their teachers to find how they can make classroom conditions better for instruction. Do teachers get to fill Why Do Teachers Stay? What Makes them Leave?:
