The #GreatResignation and What Leaders Can Do About It | Inside the Principal’s Office

The education industry has not been immune from the effects of the #GreatResignation. Many teachers and administrators have retired early, resigned, or have looked towards other professions outside of education. What are the root causes of these symptoms, and what role can leaders play in retaining more staff and attracting others to the profession?

This episode will feature co-hosts Michael McWilliams (Principal, Savannah Elementary) and Charles Williams (Principal, Plato Learning Academy) and guests Liz Free (CEO/Director, International School Rheintal) and Rachelle Dene Poth (Educator, Consultant, Author, Attorney).
