Demoralization as a Cause of Teacher Turnover

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 @ 2PM CDT

Presented by Doris Santoro, Education Department Professor & Chair at Bowdoin College in Maine

  • Are we too quick to call it "burnout" when a teacher leaves a district or her/his performance declines? Doris Santoro, Education Professor and Chair from Bowdoin College in Maine, has been studying the sources of teacher dissatisfaction and attrition for nearly 15 years and she believes demoralization may be the cause. Join Tim Neubert, AAEE Executive Director, as he speaks with Doris about her research and experience on this topic and why it's important we improve our understanding and appreciation for the reasons teachers leave their positions...or the profession altogether. 

  • Key Takeaways:

    1. Understand the risks of misdiagnosing "burnout"

    2. Recognize the moral and ethical challenges of teaching

    3. Improve support systems for "at-risk" teachers with better information
