"We’re losing 30 to 40 percent of our new teachers in three or four years because of the way it works in the system today, "

I wonder why.

When you get out of school to be a teacher, all the jobs you can get are the ones which all the other teachers don't want.

In other words name a professional field that the newest people get the hardest jobs frist.

When i started work, they slowly aclimated me to the job over about 3-6 months.

while teachers do get student teaching, that is not enough in my mind.
