Re: Iím so close to quitting. Anybody else?
Yes, Snerk, we agree. And that mass exodus I mentioned, yes, would need to be dramatic and get the media's attention; esp. since it is illegal. But, if it did, our society would have to deal with it - and hopefully in a way favorable to making the teaching profession a desirable thing to start AND STICK WITH. Right now it's not, as you have admitted that many teachers begin and don't finish their careers - due to the high stress/low pay, in my opinion. It is going to take a dramatic push back of teachers to get the attention of society to make this necessary change.
But I don't think that will happen, because people who decide to become teachers typically are not of that mind set.
