ABSTRACT
The author, who is the president of the National Education Association (NEA), argues that teachers in the U.S. leave their profession because they do not get the respect they deserve or the resources they need. She claims that people do not enter the teaching profession for monetary consideration. She cites the assistance provided by the NEA to public school teachers to address these issues.
