North Carolina Continues To Struggle With High Teacher Turnover.

Education Week (10/14, Brenneman) reports North Carolina is struggling to recruit and retain teachers. The state had a 15% turnover rate last year, up from 11% in 2010. Graham County superintendent Angela Knight said, “We’re having attrition because the education profession is not supported at all by the General Assembly.” North Carolina lawmakers have attempted to end tenure and teacher pay in the state is lower now than a decade ago relative to other states.
