http://wallethub.com/edu/best-and-worse-states-for-teachers/7159/#main-findings

I came across this article and wanted to share it. Where does Washington State fit? Answer: #30 out of 51.

Some interesting facts about teachers today:

1) According to the National Center for Education Statistics, about a fifth of all newly minted public school teachers leave their positions before the end of their first year. And almost half never last more than five.

2) Teachers, especially novices, move to other schools or abandon the profession “as the result of feeling overwhelmed, ineffective, and unsupported,” according to the ASCD.
