Over one quarter of all teachers in the US regularly miss class, requiring more subs


In the Washington Post, front page Thursday morning, Alejandra Matos reports that 27% of all teachers are chronically absent from class, missing two weeks or more of classes each academic year, increasing the need for subs.

Female teachers are more likely to be absent because of child care.
 
One problem is that inexperienced subs, often unlicensed, could be much more troubled by discipline and classroom management problems because original teachers may not have set up enough control and rapport with their own classes.  I certainly found that when I was subbing.
