Sixty-five percent of public school teachers who left the education field felt that the workload in their new professions was more manageable, and they found it easier in their new jobs to balance their work and personal life, according to a survey by the National Center for Education Statistics.
The survey, a follow-up to the 2003-04 Schools and Staffing Survey, also found that 70 percent of public school teachers who moved to a different school cited dissatisfaction with workplace conditions or the administration as "very important" in their decisions to leave. Researchers surveyed 7,500 elementary and secondary teachers for the study.
