Draft report: Teacher turnover rate was 9 percent last year

The N.C. State Board of Education just posted the draft 2015-16 State of the Teaching Profession Report.  It indicates that the overall attrition rate for 2015-16 was 9.04 percent.  Note that the attrition rate includes retirees.

Because of changes made to the report, N.C. Department of Public Instruction researchers say that this year’s data should not be compared to rates from previous years, including the 14.84 percent rate reported last year.

I’ll post additional information from the report later today.
