K-12 Recruitment & Retention Statistics You Should Know

Recruitment and retention are two sides of the same coin. And you know that to improve student learning in your district, you have to hire the right people and keep them around.

But you might not know that not enough is being done to connect teacher recruiting to retention. For example, a survey found that less than 10% of education organizations believe they are effectively analyzing the relationship between recruitment and retention.

And 25% of organizations don’t analyze recruiting or retention.

After the hire, the numbers don’t look much better, with less than half of our survey’s respondents claiming that they have an effective induction or mentoring program for new teachers. That’s unsettling, as the teaching profession is notoriously troubled by high turnover.
