On the one hand Bangalore is booming with new schools that promise their students a progressive & world class education. On the other hand, the city's old established schools are having difficulty attracting the best teachers like they used to a couple of decades ago. Indeed teacher attrition is a crisis that all schools are struggling with.
Teachers are the most important resource for a school. The reputation of every great school has been solely built on the basis of its teachers and headteachers. And yet this vital human resource has today become an almost transient commodity that keeps hopping schools. This is deeply problematic. When there's frequent movement of teachers and headteachers, Students are deprived of the stability and security they deserve in their formative learning years. Moreover teachers deprive themselves of the time and equilibrium that's needed to reflect and mature into inspiring and legendary educators.
This collective aims at looking squarely at this problem and discussing all the possible reasons for teacher attrition and practical ways to stem this outflow. Some of these ways could be personal, others philosophical and still others managerial & financial.
In this context, TTF is bringing together a panel of experienced school heads from schools across Bangalore, to share their experiences and thoughts on ways they have effectively dealt with teacher attrition. As members of the audience you too will be invited to share your views and concerns. So do come and participate in what promises to be an engrossing and illuminating session.
