At the start of the new school year, surveys suggest that teachers are burned out amidst what The Washington Post has characterized as a “catastrophic teacher shortage.” What’s fueling teacher burnout, and what can be done to help fix it?
Our virtual forum included a discussion with Belle Liang, Ph.D., and Timothy Klein, LCSW, co-authors of How to Navigate Life: The New Science of Finding Your Way In School, Career, and Beyond on their latest research on the psychological and cultural causes of teacher burnout.
After the discussion with Liang and Klein, former school superintendent Dwight Jones and a panel of education organizations working in collaboration with schools and districts will react to the authors’ findings and share insights and perspectives from their work on the ground and in the field.
