Discovery Education today announced the availability of a new, free, eBook entitled Retain Your Best Educators and Overcome the Teacher Shortage—5 Actions for Proactive Education Leaders. Discovery Education is the worldwide edtech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform supports instruction wherever it takes place.
Recent research from the Institute of Education Sciences showed that 53% of schools started the 2022-2023 school year feeling understaffed, and as more teachers plan to leave the profession, more schools will be left feeling incomplete. Retain Your Best Educators and Overcome the Teacher Shortage is a product of interviews with teachers and administrators across the country conducted over the last year and offers school leaders concrete suggestions they can take to retain their teachers including:
- Providing teachers opportunities to grow in new ways.
- Building creative and encouraging work environments.
- Empowering teachers with time-saving resources.
- Positively presenting new innovations.
A free copy of Retain Your Best Educators and Overcome the Teacher Shortage—5 Actions for Proactive Education Leaders can be downloaded here.
