As we look at the current and future reality where students and professionals have choice-filled lives, innovation in recruitment and retention is key to approaching how we look at the schooling experience. I challenge the assertion listed below, but also know irrespective of turnover rates or other career options being available, those who CHOOSE to support the educational experience of our children must be highly qualified and professionally developed by districts and school-based leadership to meet the needs of their constituency. Irrespective of their longevity in the field, the focus on positive IMPACT must be a constant goal. I applaud principals and districts as they re-evaluate and innovate within their talent management strategies. As mentioned, NEVER focus on collapse. We should focus on how we BUILD, LEARN from our current context, and PREPARE for new generation of student and educator. Change will forever be the constant.
