…Considering the quantity of School Reviews, both good and bad, that fill the pages of International Schools Review, our recent survey — What’s Your Next Step? — produced some unanticipated results.
…Of the 357 Educators who took our survey, a full 80% of International Educators are staying in the game. Of the remaining respondents, just 5.3% said they will be breaking Contract.
It’s this number that surprised us. At ISR, we anticipated more Educators could be breaking Contract due to the increase in School Reviews from teachers obviously completely disgusted with their schools.
* Is the fact 20% of International Educators are dropping out, some “unannounced” to their schools as of yet, an indication that job openings will be popping up in the near future? Is now the time to contact schools directly or are sudden vacancies just prior to the new school year a red light?
* Are International Educators willing to stick out truly awful schools, as reviewed on ISR, in order to keep the door open for a future opportunity to recruit for a better school?
* Are International Educators willing to put up with the abuses outlined in some School Reviews simply for the opportunity to live overseas?
