About the Book
Much Anticipated Book Addresses America’s Next Educational Crisis

The rate of teacher attrition may soon leave America’s classrooms without enough teachers or school principals.

Forty-four percent of classroom teachers are leaving the educational field in five years. They are leaving almost as quickly as Colleges of Education are graduating them.
