Teachers have been quitting teaching for decades just as the founder of unschooling, John Holt, quit teaching and John Taylor Gatto did as well because they no longer wanted to hurt children.
But today’s teachers are quitting in record numbers creating a massive teacher shortage in which many schools won’t even have enough teachers and staff to operate. The whole school system is collapsing and surprisingly many parents don’t see it. The teacher shortage was so bad last year that the National Guard was deployed to act as teachers last year.
"Even a mass exodus of teachers doesn’t faze our administration on any level. They just don’t care."
