A new study from Brown University is shedding light on teacher retention and staffing challenges in Providence schools.
The report shows that teaching vacancies in Providence public schools remain high and it’s been harder to hang onto teachers since the pandemic.
However, they say the overall story is more mixed.
The study shows that the number of unfilled jobs is not unprecedented this year and teacher retention is higher than in many other districts in the country.
The report, from Brown University’s Annenberg Institute, shows more teachers are leaving Providence to go to other districts in the state compared to teachers from outside the district coming in.
