BBC News - Numbers of teachers who quit 'up by a fifth in a year'

BBC News - Numbers of teachers who quit 'up by a fifth in a year':

"The number of teachers who quit their jobs in English state schools rose by almost a fifth in one year, official figures suggest.

Some 47,700 teachers left their jobs in the year 2010-11, up from 40,070 in 2009-10, according to Schools Minister David Laws.

Mr Laws was responding to a Parliamentary question from Labour.

The government said the figures were provisional, so it could not say whether they showed a long-term trend.

Until last year, the figures, from the database of teacher records, showed a fall in the number of qualified teachers leaving the profession over the previous five years."
