More Minnesota teachers leaving jobs, new state report shows
February 3, 2017
Days after his graduation last May, Waleid Hassan landed four job interviews. The Metropolitan State University graduate ultimately said yes to a job at Osseo Senior High School teaching geometry and Algebra 2. Six months into his first teaching job, Hassan said he loves it.
The test for schools is to figure out how to retain teachers like Hassan. A newly released Minnesota Department of Education report reveals that teachers are increasingly leaving the profession.
