HARRISBURG (AP) – Teachers are leaving their jobs at an accelerating rate in PA, amid fears of a nationwide exodus of burned-out teachers. A new review by Penn State’s Center for Education Evaluation and Policy Analysis shows that the rate of teacher attrition in PA grew faster in the 2022-23 school year and hit its highest point in a decade of tracking. The past two years, schools saw relatively modest changes in attrition even as teachers reported more dissatisfaction with the job. Penn State education professor Ed Fuller, who conducted the analysis, said he has seen data from 12 states with similar increases in this school year. At the moment, state lawmakers and Gov. Josh Shapiro are looking at ways to address the teacher shortage, including stipends for student teachers and tax credits for newly certified teachers.
