EMPOWERED EDUCATORS

“Can teachers successfully educate children to think for themselves if teachers are not treated as professionals who think for themselves?” [1]

WHAT CAN I DO TO
HELP TEACHERS?

This month at CharitySub we’ve selected three charities that support our nation’s selfless educators. Our teachers face incredible challenges in the classroom every day. Underfunding affects more than just teacher paychecks, it also affects classroom conditions, contributes to a

lack of administrator support, and increases the student to teacher ratio. All this, paired with higher testing standards puts an enormous strain on both teachers and students. Join us as we learn more about the issues that affect our nation's educators.

THE EARLY YEARS ARE THE TOUGHEST

45% OF NEW TEACHERS QUIT IN THEIR FIRST 5 YEARS.

TEACHER RETENTION IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE

  • Student achievement tends to be significantly worse in the classrooms of first-year teachers, before rising in teachers' second and third years. [3]
  • It costs a school district an estimated $11,000 to replace each teacher who leaves.
  • Teachers are one of the largest workforces in this country. There are more educators than doctors, nurses, and lawyers combined. [2]
Nearly 50% of funding for public schools is provided through local taxes, this creates large differences in funding between wealthy and impoverished communities. [4]

This month’s CharitySub partners support the men and women who work so tirelessly to educate our nation’s children. Make a charity selection today, and let's support our teachers together!


Let’s support empowered educators together.
