New Alliance report on teacher attrition featured in The Journal

Nationally, schools lose between $1 billion and $2.2 billion in attrition costs each year through teachers moving or leaving the profession, according to new research from the Alliance for Excellent Education. Frequently, the shift occurs among teachers moving from poor to non-poor schools, from high-minority to low-minority schools and from urban to suburban schools.The result is a spiral of loss that affects high-poverty schools disproportionately. "The monetary cost of teacher attrition pales in comparison to the loss of human potential associated with hard-to-staff schools that disproportionately serve low-income students and students of color," explained Bob Wise, former governor of West Virginia, who leads the Alliance. "In these schools, poor learning climates and low achievement often result in students — and teachers — leaving in droves."
