Infographic: Teachers tell us what we need to do to keep them in Michigan

Mar 30, 2015

All this week on Stateside with Cynthia Canty, we'll be hearing from some of the teachers who responded to our survey about retaining teachers in Michigan. 

This infographic summarizes what a lot of them had to say about what keeps them in their classrooms. But, some educators told us why they eventually left Michigan to teach elsewhere or left the profession altogether. 

We've heard so much about teachers as lawmakers and administrators go back and forth over educational reforms.

Isn't it about time we listened to what teachers have to tell us?
