Student misbehavior is a key reason that teachers leave their jobs, writes Chalkboard Review's Tony Kinnett, who surveyed teachers in the Midwest on June 10.

He asked for "the largest reason you're leaving your position," offering various choices. "Student behavior is poor and left unchecked" was cited by 319 of the 615 responders, followed by 138 for “progressive political activity (Diversity/Equity/Inclusion, Critical Race Theory, Gender Identity, etc.) required by administration” and 134 for “salary is insufficient”.

Very few said pressure from parents on curriculum or teaching was a major reason for leaving their jobs.


Writer Joanne Jacobs is not a conservative. She's probably on the liberal side of middle-of-the-road, and honest enough to say when a liberal idea or policy is not working. IOW, this is a liberal pointing out that Prog policies are not working, and that Prog talking points about parental pressures are contradicted by reality (specifically, the reasons teacher quit their jobs).

Is it more accurate to say the children's behavior is the reason that teachers are quitting . . .

. . . Or the failure of school systems in enforcing behavior rules and putting consequences on children who continue to act up?

IOW, kids are gonna be kids. They're going to test systems, policies, rules. It's part of being a kid.

But when the entire system fails to hold those kids accountable, up to and including holding them back a grade when they fail to meet academic standards, THAT is the real problem as I see it.

IMO, it's both. Discipline is lax and racialized by activists. Too many parents are teaching their munchkins that they are little godlings who get their way, can do no wrong, and should defy authority.
