USA: „Attrition in the teacher workforce has risen sharply at both the beginning and the end of the career. The annual overall attrition rate among teacher rose by 41 % from 1988 to 2008, from 6.4 % to 9 %. The proportion of 1st-year teachers who leave rose from 10 % to 13 % during that period. At least 30 % of teachers leave teaching within 5 years (rates are higher in low-income communities), and the profession is relying more and more on less-experienced teachers.“
