I can't believe someone has been commissioned to undertake this study. All you need to do is walk into a school and ask a teacher "Why do you want to quit?", and they'd say exactly the same thing. But, who asks a teacher for their thoughts, eh? Why not spend thousands on an unneccessary study....
The high turnover of teachers from some struggling schools would not be stemmed by higher wages, a study suggests.
Poor pupil behaviour and overwork are the barriers stopping teachers working in challenging schools, reports the Institute for Public Policy Research.
Teachers' pay has risen in recent years, but training, support and work experience would have a greater impact on retention, its survey suggests.
There should also be job-swaps between teachers at various schools, it says.
Jodie Reed, from the institute said: "The 'crisis' in teacher recruitment and retention has passed, but turnover is higher in challenging schools. Increasing teachers' pay, even if it was affordable, is not the answer.
"Reducing workload and tackling poor pupil behaviour are more important. We must find new ways to encourage high quality teachers to work in, and stay working in, challenging schools."
The institute said there should be incentives for teachers from less challenging schools to job swap with teachers in challenging schools.
The researchers also said schools' management teams should have a clear behaviour policy which set out the expected rules and that staff and pupils should sign up to it.
The research involved interviews with teachers and head teachers. They mostly said that professional development and behaviour measures would improve their working life.
And will this be acted upon? Of course not! What a waste of money that could have been spent on books, teachers, assistants, and numerous other things.
