More Idaho teachers left the profession last year…

Idaho teachers are leaving the profession in bigger numbers, the Associated Press reports, with more than 1,800 making their exit last year. More than 957 of the 1,884 teachers who left the profession during the 2011-2012 school year cited “personal reasons;” the departures increased significantly from the previous year, when 1,276 teachers left the profession, and the year before, when 716 exited.

While opponents of state schools Supt. Tom Luna's “Students Come First” school reforms have cited the laws as prompting more teachers to leave, Luna maintains the economy was more of a factor in the departures. His office also noted an increase in the number of individuals seeking an alternative, quicker route to certification as teachers in Idaho in the last year; click below for a full report from AP reporter Jessie Bonner.
