Chalkbeat: Losing a Teacher Midyear Detrimental to Student Growth

A new report from Chalkbeat discusses recent findings on the consequences of midyear teacher turnover. 

Student performance suffers greatly when a teacher leaves in the midst of the school year, and the article cites three main reasons why:

  1. Disruption in the classroom when a teacher leaves
  2. Instability in a school where teachers are exiting midyear
  3. Less effective teachers replacing those who depart

For more information on the issue, check out the Chalkbeat website.
