Washington, DC – Teachers are leaving charters at higher rates than are educators resigning from public schools. There are instances where teacher flight from some charters is as high as forty-percent.
Since charters discourage union organizing, many schools ‘push out’ teachers that are union minded. The instability at many chartders is hampering quality instruction for students. Young teachers dont stay in what often is a chiotic job without job security, and limited benefits. Unlike traditional public schools with their union contracts, charters are flushing out the teachers who no longer see eye to eye with the organization.
As teachers become more confident in their skills and in themselves, they start to speak out against what’s wrong with a school organization. Sometimes at the expense of their employment. The weeding process at charters is designed to remove those educators who will push for organizational accountability, and collective bargaining.
