SC for Ed: 27% of teachers plan to leave profession

While the SC Senate passed a budget, last week, including pay increases for teachers, that budget proposal won’t make it to the House floor before the ongoing two-week special session comes to an end, this week.

Teacher walkouts have at times drawn criticism from some who say these walkouts hurt the students, but Ellis says, “We really need to consider, not just here and now, but the longevity of the profession and if it takes me taking one day out of the school year to go and really fight for public education and fight for teachers, what that means down the line is that, hopefully, that there’s more teachers that are staying in the classroom.”
