Keep Gen Y Teachers Teaching

4/25/2011 6:00:00 AM

A recent report released by the American Federation of Teachers and the American Institutes for Research has shown that Generation Y teachers–those in their mid-30s or younger–have said need workplaces that support high-quality teaching and learning, or else. According to a related report, over 50% more younger teachers are leaving the teaching world as compared to their older colleagues. As a PD professional supporting these teachers, you need to listen up before it’s too late. Gen Y teachers said they need schools that:

    * Provide regular feedback to teachers on their effectiveness.
    * Have fair, rigorous and meaningful evaluation systems.
    * Support peer learning and shared practice.
    * Recognize and reward high performance.
    * Use technology intelligently to enhance performance.
