The demands put on Human Resources in public schools can be daunting. With your baby boomers now at retirement age, tremendous competition for new college graduates, 47% of all new teachers leaving the teaching field within the first five years of starting, states raising starting salaries and breathtaking signing bonuses, and a lack of housing in small rural districts are what most H.R. directors’ face.
As we know, few H.R. Directors or even members of the H.R. staff have either the education or the training on best practices of recruiting and retention.
Additionally, your principals have little to no idea of what you had to go through to get that teacher. If they did they would have worked harder to keep them.
If you would like to get off of the hamster wheel, we are here to support you.
