This three-page reprint, originally published in the May 1990 issue of Vocational Education Journal, reports that fifteen percent of teachers leave the profession after their first year of teaching and fifty percent leave within the first six years. Why is this? What can be done? The article explores the problems experienced by beginning vocational teachers and provides a list of detailed, concrete suggestions for building a more successful teaching (and learning) environment.
