Teaching in the US vs. the rest of the world
As in other aspects of teacher shortages, however, rates vary between low- and high-poverty schools. In low-poverty schools, To put it another way, the aggregate turnover and attrition rate is Teaching status is coded from the perspective of whether teachers are generating a vacancy in the school the year after the SASS. Teachers who generated a vacancy in the school year but are in the profession teaching in another school or are on short-term leave and returning to the school are in the "left the school but teaching" category. More data are needed to determine whether attrition causes certain schools to lose teachers with qualifications associated with effective teaching.
As suggested by the literature and noted in our first paper in this series, overall, the credentials of teachers who stay in teaching are stronger than the credentials of teachers who quit the profession, which would indicate no leakage in teaching overall through attrition. Table 4 provides a detailed look at the shares of teachers with various qualifications certification, experience, and educational background, as in our first report by teacher status, i.
The NBPTS is a nongovernmental organization that administers National Board certification, a voluntary national assessment program that certifies teachers who demonstrate advanced knowledge, skills, and practice in their certificate area. Note: Data are for teachers in public noncharter schools. According to research and to the U. Teaching status is determined by the reported status of teachers in the Teacher Follow-up Survey conducted for the — school year, one year after the — Schools and Staffing Survey. Teachers who generated a vacancy in the school year but remained in the profession i. As the table shows, the qualifications of teachers who stay, leave the school, or quit the profession differ, but schools are not consistently losing strong credentials due to attrition, because the qualifications of teachers staying at the school are the strongest with the exception of teachers who are NBTPS.
Among teachers who left the school or quit teaching, smaller shares are fully certified Earlier in this report we showed that turnover and attrition are higher in high-poverty schools see discussion around Figure C. Here we discuss how turnover and attrition could be responsible for some leakage of credentials from high-poverty schools. One reason is the weaker link between higher credentials and retention in high-poverty schools. In short, high-poverty schools would need to compensate for these negative trends by hiring greater shares of credentialed teachers to keep up with their wealthier counterparts, and we know that doing so would be extremely unlikely. In practice, the teacher shortage manifests in schools as an inability to be staffed adequately.
And for any reason or combination of reasons—insufficient teachers coming into teaching, excessive numbers of teachers quitting the profession because of worsening working conditions, etc. This report focuses on the challenges schools face filling their vacancies or meeting their staffing needs primarily due to two trends: more teachers leaving schools and the profession and fewer people entering the teaching profession. It also raises three concerns on top of the leakage of teachers from the profession and the dwindling pool or potential new teachers. First is the potential change or decline in the qualifications of the teaching workforce, driven by increased churn turnover and attrition in the teacher labor market, by changes in the strength of the teaching preparation programs, by alterations in the requirements to accessing an initial teaching credential, and by the slight loss of credentialed teachers who leave the profession.
Second is the increased difficulty that schools are having filling vacancies, which in turn has increased the pressure on schools to hire teachers with fewer credentials and thus affected the overall qualifications of the teaching workforce. In our next reports, we will discuss the factors that make it hard for schools—and especially for high poverty schools—to attract and retain teachers, and, relatedly, why teachers want to leave the profession and why people are less inclined to pursue a teaching career in the first place.
In brief, we will show that the supply of new teachers is not meeting the demand at least in part because teacher pay and working conditions and the prestige of teaching are deteriorating. We argue that policymakers are failing to meet the needs of their constituents by failing to address the factors that are prompting teachers to quit and dissuading people from entering the profession, by underestimating what this job involves and by not supporting efforts to professionalize teaching.

The surveys collect data on and from teachers, principals, and schools in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Census Bureau for the U.
Department of Education. The TFS survey, which is the source of data on teachers who stay or quit, was conducted a year after the — SASS survey to collect information on the employment and teaching status, plans, and opinions of teachers in the SASS. Following the first administration of the NTPS, no follow-up study was done, preventing us from conducting an updated analysis of teachers by teaching status the year after the NTPS. In the tables consulted, the information is available from to —, which we reproduce in the appendix. In the body of the report, we focus on academic years — and — the first year serves as a pre-recession marker and allows us to match it with the eldest information available in the Title II data see below ; — allows us to match it with the most recent NTPS data.

Notes: Data are for teachers in public noncharter schools. Teaching status is determined by the reported status of teachers in the Teacher Follow-up Survey conducted for the — school year, one year after the Schools and Staffing Survey. Teachers who quit are those who generated a vacancy in the — school year and are not in the profession they left teaching, were on long-term leave, or were deceased. Source: Digest of Education Statistics U. Department of Education , Table Not included in the table are teachers who generated a vacancy in the school year but remained in the profession i.
Teacher demand-side drivers are linked to the need for teachers, i. Supply-side drivers are linked to the number of qualified people who are available and willing to teach, i. Sorensen and Ladd note that class sizes did not generally increase as a result of high teacher turnover in North Carolina, likely because of state policies that preclude increasing class size to accommodate teacher vacancies.
On average, across math and English language arts ELA classes in middle school, Licensure exam scores of middle school math and ELA teachers are, on average, 0. This perspective reduces pressure to adopt policies that encourage the retention of teachers, overlooking the trade-off between the qualifications and quality of teachers who leave and those who come Sorensen and Ladd Notwithstanding this evidence of the short-term decrease in people awarded teaching degrees or completing teacher preparation programs, Cowan et al.
Indeed, the short-term trend is one in which the number of pupils increased, so unless there is an intention to scale back staffing, any decline of the teacher pool is problematic. Traditional teacher preparation programs are typically undergraduate programs offered by institutions of higher education IHEs and entered into by individuals who enter college with the goal of becoming a teacher U. For main differences between traditional and alternative teacher preparation programs, see U. Department of Education and U. The requirements for alternative routes to a teaching certificate vary significantly across states. Teachers from alternative routes have been found to be more effective in some studies Xu, Hannaway, and Taylor , as effective as teachers from traditional programs in other research Whitford, Zhang, and Katsiyannis , Clark et al.
These factors, which differ across schools, may point to greater difficulties hiring in some schools, but our data do not allow us to explore vacancies that arise due to curriculum changes and other factors mentioned in this note. A school may end up filling in a vacancy in a temporary manner, or may make some adjustment to cover the vacancy, for example by expanding a class size or finding an underprepared teacher. See Ingersoll for a comparison of attrition among teachers and their peers in most occupations discussed later in this report.
See Goldring, Taie, and Riddles for the evolution of rates of stayers, movers, and leavers among public school teachers between — and — Table 1 in their report. See Darling-Hammond et al. Some of the comparisons yield only modest gaps. These shares are based on data that follows individuals over time, whereas the information in Table 4 is based on the characteristics of the — teaching cohort.
They offer complementary information to each other. A caveat is that the credentials by teaching status are not independent from the reasons why teachers stay, quit, or leave. For example, teachers who are close to retirement are likely to have more experience, be fully certified, etc. The share of teachers who are certified by the NBPTS is larger among teachers who leave the profession than among teachers who stay Podolsky et al. But the differences are narrower for teachers in high-poverty schools with the exception of the share of teachers who majored in their subject of main assignment.
The share of certified teachers who quit is larger a gap of 0. The share of teachers who entered the profession following alternative certification programs is smaller by The shortage could occur even if demand were decreasing or staying constant, if supply decreased more drastically, or if supply stayed constant or increased insufficiently. A shortage can be explained starting from a change in demand, or starting from a change in supply, as it is a gap, or difference, or imbalance between two curves.

I really want to do the challenge. Hi Alison. I think it's quite difficult, but you'll notice from the steps given that many experienced zentangle fans don't need all that many steps themselves. But I usually do, so I sympathise. I've been going wrong on this pattern and one way to fathom it out without extra steps is to do it backwards i.
That helped me! Hi Laura! Thanks to B-Rad for this delightful tangle and Happy Birthday! I've already done three attempts and posted them all. I hope you've having a nice party! B-Rad, happy birthday! Thank you for this amazing pattern. I'm already in love with it. I love it so much, I wrote a silly song for it on my blog yes, I have a 2-year old. Such fun! Your wall hangings are stunning too. Happy New Year, and welcome back, Laura! I feel so honored to be quoted on your blog. Thanks for such a great new tangle and another fun challenge!!

I've been following you for nearly all of the almost three years you've been blogging here. And, believe it or not I'm pretty insecure about my work, but I became a CZT last fall and am trying to work my way out of my phicops shell and into the Zentangle world. B-rad hit a home run with this one.
Love you! Thank you for the challenge! I'm going to try to participate on a more regular basis - missed zentangling! This was so fun, I decided to enter twice. This time on my new blog. Thanks again for another good challenge. Good to hear you had a lovely Christmas Break! Happy ! This is a fantastic tangle - well done B-rad!!

This tangle is great--absolutely mesmerizing and I have to say I am still loving me some Diva Dance as well!!!! Happy New Year to you both and the boys. You just have to love a guy who is involved in what interests his partner. Thank you B-rad for giving us this wonderful tangle!
Awesome challenge! Great tangle B-rad! I did have to spend time getting the hang of this one to make it come out nice. Mine turned into more of a spiral. Your toy it's so beautiful, I like it vey much, I also bought one at cheap chanel shopping , If you want one too. I think you will be love it too. This is a great tangle. It is easy to do with a great effect. I live how it all falls together as you are adding those last arcs. It is so versatile in shape and shading. Thanks, B-Rad! Just submitted my entry. It's obviously "beginner" quality but I had fun doing it.
You are so generous. I loved being able to see your whole process. Thank you. Phicops is a great tangle. Not only is it beautiful and intriguing, but I am fascinated by the Fibonacci series and the golden rectangle, so it's especially close to my heart! This one's definitely going in Shoshi's Zentangle Arsenal! Tip Jar. Monday, January 7, Weekly Challenge Happy Monday everyone! First of all, as always - a few house keeping items:.
