"A historic turnover is taking place in the teaching profession. While student enrollments are rising rapidly, more than a million veteran teachers are nearing retirement. Experts predict that overall we will need more than 2 million new teachers in the next decade."
"The statistics for turnover among new teachers are startling. Some 20 percent of all new hires leave the classroom within three years. In urban districts, the numbers are worse—close to 50 percent of newcomers flee the profession during their first five years of teaching."
Plato provides Internet-accessed learning solutions and is in a unique position to help fill this teacher shortage. Furthermore, if Democrats have the White House and Congress, I anticipate much more funding for after-school, summer, and other remedial programs which will require such technology.
