Disheartened Teachers

The bad news is that about 40% of K-12 teachers in the US are "disheartened": frustrated with their jobs, burnt out, not confident that they can actually help kids. The good news is that about 23% of teachers are motivated idealists. Unfortunately, what this study cannot tell us is whether the disheartened teachers are frustrated because they are not very good at their jobs, because the work in problematic schools, because they are poorly paid, or because something is wrong with the system. Would the stats in Jewish schools be any different?
