Why Tech-Enabled Teachers Flee the Classroom

As a community organizer for innovative education, it is my personal mission to stay on top of trends in the k-12, higher education and edtech realms. Over my career, I have seen an unstoppable trend emerge: the most talented, tech-enabled teachers end up leaving their classrooms behind for careers in tech or other arenas outside of education. In my evaluation of this alarming migration, I'll discuss the factors that lead teachers away from the classroom and how schools can retain them.
