The COVID-19 pandemic unquestionably transformed, and continues to transform, practically every facet of human endeavor since its arrival in late 2019/early 2020. In the U.S., increased employee turnover was one prominent consequence. However, while the private sector continues to struggle with stubbornly high turnover rates, public education as a whole, appears to remain relatively stable. The question is: Can this be generalized across public education systems? The primary goal of this study is to attempt to answer this question by examining the extent to which earlier projections of teacher turnover predict present quit and separation patterns.
